From the Sublime to - This

Sigh, I hate days like today (yesterday, too). Nothing seems to go right and many things find ways to go wrong. Perhaps it's some 2 for 1 cosmic deal: Sunday was perfect, so Monday and Tuesday have to be screwed up?

I spent two hours waiting in two different waiting rooms at the hospital for a silly test that my doctor ordered, so then I was too late to get a much coveted McGriddle(tm) combo meal (hey, I deserved it after having to fast for 10 hours and then wait and wait and wait and then be poked and prodded for my troubles), it has been raining, and raining and raining, I had to go out in that rain last evening for a meeting, my daughter's laptop computer keeps shutting itself down (try listening for a few hours to a 19 year old girl complain about her computer), the raccoons found and emptied the bird feeders (dismantling one in the process) and the window over the front door is leaking - again.

See the pouch of water on the ceiling and the one on the wall? This is never a good sign.

I poked the pouch and brown water came dripping out.

The towel is positioned to catch the drips. The day the remnants of Hurricane Katrina hit, I had about 5 gallons of water pouring in here. Remember: I live in Southern Indiana.

And this window is the culprit. We believe there is a leak at the left corner where the circle-top window meets the double-hung windows. Despite having someone attempt to fix this several times, it continues to leak. The 'good' news? It only leaks when it's raining. No, seriously, it only leaks when the wind drives the rain in from the north. By the way, will someome kindly remove that damn sticker from the inside of the circle-top window? I don't have a ladder that is nearly tall enough. And while you're up there, please clean that ugly, filthy chandelier too.

If anyone needs me, I'll be hiding, er stationed, under my covers with my own laptop computer for the rest of the day.

That sticker would drive me nuts.
