I'm not superstitious.
Not at all.
I will walk under ladders and step on sidewalk cracks with nary a thought.
Black cats can cross my path, circle around me, and do a dance routine - I will scarcely even notice. That said, it does seem that certain things beyond our control tend to happen in three's. Does it seem this way to you? When someone famous dies it seems that you can be sure that two other famous people are soon to meet their demise also. I don't understand it. I don't explain it. I don't even know if this is accurate, but it sure seems this way to me.
ALSO, when things begin to break around the house, it seems these things usually happen in three's also. Maybe this is just the case with appliances in my house - does it ever happen to you in this manner?
Yesterday I left my broken vacuum at the repair shop and am hoping they can still get the parts needed to fix it. The repairman was guardedly optimistic.
A handyman came this morning and installed a new garbage disposal. Yay! This is one of those things I don't properly appreciate until it's gone. Things get messy without a garbage disposal, ya know?!
Then yesterday afternoon I sat down at the computer to read blogs. Didn't happen.
The computer FROZE. I tried to reboot it "three" times, with no luck.
Mister bought a new one last night. Yep, this old dog is having to learn some new tricks on the computer today. We went from Vista to Windows 8. I am one of those who enjoy doing things the way I've always done them before, but alas, I am thankful for the new computer and will put my mind to learning how to navigate online in a new way.
