Any careful consideration of the facts will indicate that I am mostly likely cursed in 2017.
Not doomed, mind you. Cursed. Or maybe I’m just getting the cursiness out of my system early.
In the past 24 hours I’ve lost a job along with a couple thousand dollars and our oldest has been diagnosed with the flu.
Then, this morning, my long suffering Epson printer died (it has been promising this death for a few weeks but today it was really REALLY serious about dying). (Note: the printer is older than our youngest.) My computer has been acting up and our car has both been acting up and been recalled. (Well, actually parts of it were recalled a long time ago, but, well, She Who Must Be Obeyed.)
I then had to sit down and finish one last assignment for my fourth job, but discovered that my memory stick had been corrupted and that the only thing that had been corrupted was the folder I needed to work on. Luckily I didn’t need the past grades and was able to download the students’ paragraphs again. (My procrastination actually worked in my favor as I hadn’t actually done any marking yet which meant I didn’t have to mark anything twice.)
Oh, then I got a migraine. Now it’s bedtime. Luckily we sleep on a futon on the tatami floor so I can’t fall out of bed.
Lots of stuff to step on and trip over, though.
