Oh Joyous Christmas!

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Yesterday my phone broke and our windsheild decided to mysteriously crack out of no where, horizontally, all the way across. I think this was a gift from Santa, and must mean I've been terribly naughty this year, though I can't quite pinpoint what I must have done.

I did walk right past the Salvation Army guy, ringing the bell in the grocery styre.... twice. Maybe that's what pushed me over into the Naughty List.

Anyways, that is a total bummer. Rogers won't replace my phone, I am not eligible for an upgrade, I may have to pay for the repair, and I can't take advantage of any of the existing deals (like $0 for a Blackberry whatever with a 3 year contract) because I am already an existing customer (BASTARDS!). I could cancel my account entirely and go somewhere else but that would cost me $250! I guess Rogers knows that I am just made of money. Which is why we drive a 13 year old car with rust and now a cracked windsheild...

Sigh... At least we have a car. And for that, I am greatful. I am greatful for a lot of things, but every once and a while I can't help but shake my fists in the air and scream, "Why!? Why can't it be EASIER?!" Is it just me, or does anyone else get a twinge of jealousy (and then immediatly feel foolish and guilty for it) when they see their friends on Facebook, or in life going on vacations, and buying new gadgets, and Iphones, and cars, or expensive clothes... and you're just making it by (Albeit contributing to savings of RRSPs?). Because I do, I get that horrible jealousy, them immediatly feel foolish, but it's there.

It could always be worse. I could be in Haiti, or in flood ravaged Pakistan, or living on the streets, or jobless, or worst of all, family-less. So I've got a broken windsheild, an old car, debt I'll be paying off for the rest of my life for my silly education, a broken phone, a messy apartment, a job that is driving me clinically insane... I have a Dan, a Mom, a Dad, and bless him, a Brother (silly as he may be). And to top it off, I have the best damn dog in the whole wide world (even though he slept on my back the entire night, all 35lbs of him).

Today, I am sending away two orders from last week and filling an order from this week. Here's a great thing! Ohhh Lulu seems to be starting to get fairly consistant orders... This is my dream.

  1. That sucks :( You make such pretty undies, bad things shouldn't happen to you!

    I had a similar phone situation and bought a used phone off ebay. As long as it's the same carrier (or some other stuff I can't remember) you just stick in your SIM card and it works. Or you may have a friend with an old phone you can borrow.
