Murphy’s Law

Dear Kristen,

Remember how much Mom and Dad liked the show Murphy’s Law?  Wait – no, I’m wrong.  That was Murphy Brown that they liked. Either way, that’s not what this post is about.  This post is about the other, more sinister, Murphy’s Law.

Murphy’s Law: A rule that states, “If something can go wrong, it will.” An addition to this law reads, “and usually at the worst time.” – dictionary.com

Now I don’t believe in this law, but this week has made me empathize with those who do.

She chose the freaky giant bunny - what are you going to do?  Its HER birthday.

This week was Munchkin’s third birthday.  YAY!  So exciting and wonderful!  We did it right: balloons, cupcakes, milkshakes, the Children’s Museum of Richmond, fun presents and time with friends.  Oh – and we bought a new fridge.

“But, wait,” you say.  “Didn’t you just get a new fridge?  I mean, you did just re-do your kitchen a couple of years ago.”

And you are right.  We did.  And the fridge was new three years ago.  And it broke.  Awesome.  The repair was gonna cost over half of what the fridge originally cost – so we opted for replacing it.

Apparently this is the renovation that keeps…needing renovation.  Because our disposal broke this week, too.

And all three of us visited doctors this week.

And….just kidding. That’s all of it.  But this week had more surprises then I thought I could handle.  Luckily, or blessedly, we’ve had some really bright moments, too.  Like the birthday, a growing group of friends who want to love and follow Jesus, and a couple of beautiful days.

So, all things considered, not that shabby!  And I get a bigger fridge out of it – so I will not be complaining anymore.

On a completely different note…I’ve never seen An American Werewolf in London and after reading your post, don’t know that that will ever change….
