Post-move post

Well, our bare-bones move is done and we're just getting settled in at Casa Lickfold. There are still a few odds-n-ends that need to be dealt with but for the most part, things are coming together nicely. 

Now, I'll probably be the first to admit that I'm the type of person that when things are going well, I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop. I cannot seem to stay focused on things that are positive, but rather I seem to "wait" for the time when things start to go sour. 

And that moment happened a few days ago. It seems like since Monday afternoon, anything that could go wrong DID go wrong. Now I know I should accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative, but sometimes it helps to lay it all out there. 

I'm not going to make a giant list or anything, but things that have been delivered that we were very excited to receive were defective. I need to return them, but unfortunately we only have ONE computer that seems to work with our printer, even when plugged directly in to the printer, and it just so happens that this computer broke mere minutes ago. So, no return ticket can be printed. In addition, another of our items that happened to be quite expensive is also apparently defective. And let's not forget our 5 year old stereo receiver randomly giving up the ghost...

But the worst of all of this? Everyone in the house has had a horrible attitude. The kids are not listening, they're fighting like cats and dogs and even getting angry and physical with one another, and my husband goes off at almost no notice. It's ridiculous. 

Please Lord, PLEASE just let something go right. My sanity is slowly slipping away, and I'm most upset with the attitude of the people in this house, as everyone is on edge. Some days are just worse than others.
