That Rascal Murphy




Murphy's Law~Anything that can go wrong will go wrong


                   Just my luck.



        Murphy has decided to visit and has completely worn out his welcome.


             It started on Sunday when I was running just two minutes late for my daughter's marching band competition. It was 6 dollars a person to get into the field....It was drizzling and quite windy. My hubby, son and I paid our 18 dollars only to find that the band that was leaving the field as we were walking in...was my daughter's!

Then later while on a late night run to the supermarket my debit card was denied and lo and behold I could not find my credit card...that little plastic debt maker was sitting pretty on my bureau at home. I had to ask the cashier to put aside my order so I could race home to get the card. Not too embarrassing....ugh!

On the way home the slight rumble of my car brakes became a scraping noise that could probably be heard for miles. Today we spent 270.00 (sound of credit card groaning) to fix the pads and rotors.

This afternoon the wind howled preparing for a storm (that really never came) my husband and I were out on the field watching my son in his cross country meet. Since there were not many parents there we took it upon our selves to be their cheering section. 



           "Hey, great job guys!"

               "Go Go Go!"

                       


When my son came home I thought he would be pleased that we were there in that windy chilly afternoon cheering them on. Well.......NOOOOOOOOOO. He was embarrassed! He actually said " Hey Mom, could you tone it down a bit when we are on the field.You're loud."




      Tone it down?????


               Oh yeah?


                       Really?



So naturally after all this bad ju ju and nonsense brought about by good old Murphy and his stupid law....




  I'm kicking "Murphy" to the curb 

                           

      ... and looking to Amazon to possibly buy a megaphone.....Tone it down?







                    My son doesn't know it yet but Murphy might make an appearance at his next meet......
