One of those days..

Have you ever had one of those days, where nothing seems to go right?  I must have the worst luck when it comes to small appliances, etc.  Today a friend comes over to help me replace the burners in my gas grill - I bought the wrong ones - ugh.  So upon inspection I notice the ignitor is rusted out - the burner covers are rusted - the grates have seen better days - now mind you - this is only about 5 years old.  I do leave it outside in the winter - big mistake in our upstate New York winters.  I guess the cover doesn't do its job.  After pricing out the parts it was cheaper to buy a new grill, so off to Lowe's we go.

Brought the grill home, cooked dinner on it, and then decided to continue to mow the lawn (took a break for diner) and guess what?  The mower won't start.  I just couldn't believe it!  Looked all over - took it apart- and found a splice in the wire, so what do I do?  Head off to Home Depot to look for parts.  No such luck.  Priced lawn mowers and headed to Lowe's - of course the same cashier is still working :-) and I said I'm back mower just died.  They didn't have parts of course.  So wound up getting a new lawn mower!  First week of my summer vacation and had to get two new appliances for the backyard!  Everything goes in three's - so I am keeping my fingers crossed but, if something else goes I hope it's something small like a toaster. Hope everyone else had a better day :-)
