I have met Murphy and he has laws.

I think he's taken up residents in my house.

A few weeks ago, on Ravelry, while we were posting things that we were thankful for, I posted that I was thankful for having a roof over my head and a bed under it.
Shortly after that, my husband lost his job and with it, our only source of income.

To try to help ends meet, I decided to open an Etsy shop and sell fiber. I downloaded the USPS shipping helper program but it didn't work. I tried upgrading Firefox in the hopes it would work, and, it killed my 12 year old operating systems ability to access the internet.

And the icing on the cake? We had a tiny, non-programmable microwave. It was the size meant for a coffee cup and it only had an on/off feature. My mother took pity on us and bought the family a huge one for Christmas. I just tried baking a potato with the 'potato' feature and I set the potato on fire and broke the turn table plate for the microwave.

I think I'm going to start charging Murphy rent. Maybe he'll buy me a computer so I don't have to borrow one to to make money. Or a new microwave. I get the feeling he won't be helping DH get a job.
