Bob Dylan sings "Everything is Broken." I think he's right.

List everything in your life that is breaking right now, from the physical to the psychological, etc...

Do you feel like everything is going wrong in your life right now? Well, if so, you are not alone.

1. Car leaking oil, and has been neglected for years so, thus, has not been tuned up.
2. Dishwasher--this one really kills me--starts foaming and flooding my kitchen floor last week. I tried to fix it myself and probably made it worse: pieces of dishwasher all over the kitchen.
3. My sweet dog seems to be feeling bad and I can't figure out what the cause is yet. He also can only seem to urinate on the few plants in my back yard that I have (here in this desert, where it's difficult to grow anything)
4. Master bedroom faucet leaks.
5. Kitchen faucet leaks.
6. Huge tree died in my backyard and is going to tumble over any second now and crush the roof of my house.
7. Refrigerator: Something wrong with ice-maker or drainage system, so something is dripping water and it is making ice all over the refrigerator, and leaving so much water at the bottom of the fridge that it sometimes overflows onto the kitchen floor.
8. My sweet cat can't seem to piss into either of his two litter boxes. He can piss on the walls, the floors, everywhere, except in the damned litterbox.

ON EDIT:

How could I forget:

9. My phone died last week, when it was--as you might expect--particularly important to be able to have a telephone.
10. Computer virus that keeps hijacking my browser, but this issue seems to be getting better thanks to my anti-virus software.



There's more, but I'll keep it to the technical right now.

1. that's houses for ya - sorry about your pets, though
we have a 100 year old house, and it's always something. If it isn't the furnace, it's various leaks, bathroom remodeling, the deck in need of replacement, garage needing to be painted, what have you.


That is a great catchy song, though.
