It is a true Monday. Not a good thing to be. How awful can a Monday be? Let me count the ways.

It’s raining.

The little frog we were raising all winter, getting ready to put out into the pond died this morning.

The dishwasher that sounded like it was washing the dishes wasn’t. They all had to be washed by hand this morning. Repair man due Wednesday.

The washing machine decided not to drain. A full load of wash is still in it. I plan to bail water out of it later today. Repair man due Thursday.

The kitchen light, which is hard to change and takes a special bulb blew out this morning. I had just climbed up and changed it last week.

We found a tick on Yarn Rascal. I am totally panicked that he’ll catch something horrible.

The can opener broke.

A rather large bird took a rather large poop on the moon roof of my car. So large in fact that the rain isn’t washing it away. I will have to go out and get the ladder and climb up it to reach the roof of the car and scrub it clean. By the way, just in case you ever need some handy small talk at a fancy dinner party, when an eagle, falcon, hawk or other large bird of prey goes potty it is called muting. Big birds mute. If your companion at the fancy dinner party is a hawking fanatic he / she will love that you know this intimate piece of knowledge.

I spent the weekend straining my eyes looking for a particular knit stitch. Today I find that stitch does not exist. Instead it is a combination of knitting and sewing with embroidery thread. I go to print this information to study it and my printer doesn’t work.

I do all the technical things I know how to do to a printer. Try to print again. No go.

I take my laptop downstairs to The Skipper’s printer. I try to print again. No go. The computer for some reason won’t recognize a printer it has always recognized before. I spend an hour trying to get computer and printer to say hello. No go.

I really need this information printed out, but I am wrapping my head around that it might not get done today.

My printer needs to be fixed. That means I have to jockey it up to Best Buy and see if they can fix it. I am sure it is something with the printing head or ink thing. But first I have to wait until it stops raining so I can clean of the bird mute from the roof of my car.

And it’s not even noon yet. Will this day never end?
