Ba Humbug | My Life in Gifs


I am taking a break from the regular scheduled program. Things are not all antelope rugs and rstyle links around here.

This is our Christmas tree 2 hours after I finished putting lights on it.
I decided to do what any normal person would do in my situation. I just put more lights over the dead lights. At this point, we have 3 extension cords running to our Christmas tree. Can you say fire hazard?

Last night this is what I come home to. I quit.


The Christmas tree is the least of our problems. We have not had a refrigerator since middle of October. I shit you not. If you ever take anything away from this blog, please do not buy your appliances at Sears. Evidently, when you buy a warranty it means they can fix it whenever they want. I spend most of my days on the phone acting like a crazy person.


Then to top off all of our good luck, our heat quit working last night. 
  Luckily, I found a pair of upholstered X- benches for cheap and it made everything okay. I am easy to please.

  1. Omg I'm dying. My friend bought a full size mattress from Sears and they shipped him a queen. Then he had a beast of a time getting them to come back to pick it up and another beast of a time getting them to ship the full. After - I kid you not - MONTHS of acting like a crazy person on the phone they sent him the full bed and a few hundred dollars in gift cards. He ended up getting basically a whole new kitchen's worth of small appliances, but he earned it, IMO. Sears sucks.

    1. I am going to need a couple hundred in gift cards. It would be awesome if the cards were not to Sears.

    1. I did not throw in the fact that I am having a party and 40 people are coming to our house this weekend. No fridge or heat. I cannot be held accountable for any of my actions. Wine keeps you warm.

  3. LOL! You are hilarious. I mean I'm sorry about your tree lights and the heat! Oh my what a week you've had, but this post is so funny. Glad you scored those awesome x-benches and still have your great sense of humor. Hope you have a faboulous weekend. You deserve it!

  5. I kept having this problem with my lights and finally figured it out...don't plug the lights into the previous strand. Plug each strand into one of those plug-in strips (I use two of them!) and the ones that weren't working magically work again. This is after 2-3 yrs. of trees looking exactly like yours. Love your blog!

  8. You crack me up. Sorry for all the crap going down. Sears has worked me over before as well. The worst. And as for your tree, at least you don't have to take the lights off before you throw it out in January.
