Where is it written that my life must suck?
Why is it that whenever I seem to be getting to the point where I might be able to cope with life life dumps more shit on me?

First, on the coldest night of the winter so far, my furnace is acting up.  I realized it was down to 55 or so and looked at it; it was flashing a diagnostic code that said the flame sensor wasn't working.  I reset it and it turned on and warmed the house up just fine, but now it's flashing the code again.

And second, I discovered that Meg is leaving bloody tracks.  She's been licking her left rear paw a lot, and she has some swelling in the base of the main pad up between the toes.  It appears to be very aggravating because when I hold the paw she tries hard to lick it and licks me if I won't let her get to it.

Well, that seems like the pessimistic way to look at it. The optimistic way would be that "fate" waited until you were able to deal with before tossing you another curve.

Good luck figuring out the furnace (hopefully that'll just be a telephone consultation) and the fur-kid.

*wryly* Maybe the furnace is winter's way of saying "Hey, you didn't think today was cold? I can make you think it's cold!"

Do you think Meg might have cut her paw on the ice or something? One of my friends' dogs did that last week.

Hi from one of those people you haven't met yet although we have traded comments occasionally...

That which does not kill us makes us stronger? A week after I started dating someone...he had quadruple bypass surgery. (He'll be fine and we'll get past it.) The day before I was due for my own sinus surgery, my car wouldn't start. Etc. etc. etc. So even if the situation is different, I sympathize with the aggravation/frustration.
