What Gods Have We Angered?

Yesterday morning I was optimistic about things having turned around and being able to focus on crafting for a while again. I had stories in the works, artwork ready to be crafted, Bead & Button classes registered for, I was reading happily each morning, listening to an audio book in "spare" moments, and LOTRO was plugging along. DH was even feeling better. Everything was looking good.

At 9:10am I got a phone call from DH. "My car won't start. It turned over, gave a 'whoosh' and now it won't start at all."

My response? "I'll be right there." So within two minutes I was in my car driving home again. I had enough time to get him to work and myself to work before unlocking the store, and then had to drive him home again after work. He tried the car one more time after we had returned at night, and it is non-responsive. So, at 6:30 am today I get to phone AAA to arrange for a tow to get his car delivered to the repair station. We'll get that arranged, then I'll drop him back home because he has Tuesdays off from work, and I'll continue on my merry way. It's a total muck-up of my morning schedule, will cost us money that we really don't have, and in general was NOT what we needed right now. *sigh* Here we go again... At least we had good sales for a Monday...that's something positive at least :-)

Oh hell, cars! They always let you down at the worst moment. I hope the repair's not too expensive. :(
Oh, sorry to hear that. Fingers crossed that it is only some small thing gone wrong, which doesn't cost much.
I'm really hoping that it's just a sensor or something relatively inexpensive and easy to fix. The car is 20 years old though, so not as easy to fix and get parts for.

Oh wow, how awful. Cars are (imho) a necessary evil. I hope it is nothing too bad?
It turned out to be rather bad indeed, and quite expensive. With luck we'll have it back by tonight, otherwise it will be tomorrow. DH made it worse - when it wouldn't start, he floored the accelerator, flooding the engine and making the repair much more complex. WTG DH! LOL - thank goodness he did it all by himself :-)

If it is not one thing then it is another, but one can have too much of these things. I hope lots of nice things happen soon to balance out all the negative events.
Nice would be really nice. I hope to just bury myself in fire and glass tomorrow and Thursday and burn off some of this negativity (or set my house on fire). The way my luck has been going lately, it could be the latter and that would be NOT GOOD - LOL.
