A Streak of Bad Luck

While I can be thankful that it does not happen often to me, I must say that it really sucks when it does...I am having a streak of bad luck at the moment.

It started out with the hot water tank busting and then getting ants.  While I'm not sure, I think the ants may be linked to the water because not long after the water issue was solved the ants started to come through the cracks between the wall and the floor right where the water was.  I spent some time trying to get rid of them.  It was stressful because nothing really seemed to be working.  Then I bought the bait traps and those seem to be doing a better job although they are not all got yet, better but not solved.  So I still have in the back of my mind that I'm going to walk into a house full of ants like I did before using the bait.

Then somewhere around this time I get a ticket in the mail for going through a red light (€227).  I still think it was not my fault but more the guy in front of me who slammed their brakes in the intersection with me behind if he would have kept going there would not have been a problem...looks like I get to pay for that, great.

Then my car breaks on the way to work and have to spend almost €300 on getting it fixed.  About 2 weeks later, it breaks on the way to work again!!  I knew it was something different this time just by the way it was behaving.  I took it to the garage today with an appointment at 9:00.  I did not get a call all day which I thought was a good thing (usually it is) but when I got there I saw that my car was not outside and I thought (oh no).  Told them that I was there for the Peugeot 206 and they told me that it was not done yet, they still had no idea what was wrong.  He showed me a whole list of things that they checked and the things they still needed to check.  So the car is still there and I'm just hoping that they find it tomorrow and that whatever it is is not going to be too expensive but I feel like if they had all day today to find it and did not then it is not looking good.

I need some good things to start happening again.  I don't like all this bad stuff coming in a row like this.  Maybe this will be the end for a while, I really hope so because bad things are supposed to happen in clumps right?  Well I think this is enough for now!  I'm still really worried about the car.  I hate cars.  I wish I could just get rid of the stupid thing...
