• No worries, you're just having some bad days. 😊

      Look at it this way: it's not how you start, it's how you finish, so cheers.
  • That's life, baby! Bad things happen to everyone. Expect it from now on. You should always put back at least 10% of your earnings into savings every payday to cover unexpected expenses. That's in addition to regular maintenance costs. Pipes don't just break. They wear out or they were not properly protected when it got cold. There is insulation made especially for pipes, and leaving a small trickle of water running will prevent pipes from freezing. There is also heat sink if you live where its really cold. Electrical shorts don't usually just happen. That's wear also. Or improper grounding or water interfering with the circuit. How long has your relative had this house? Do you have insurance? In summation, you need to plan for emergencies and regular maintenance. Not just on your home, but also on your vehicle, appliances, tools, clothing, food and everything else. These are things to be taken in stride, its not a major setback, like say getting a terminal illness or worse one that costs a half a mill to treat! Also be thankful you have a home to stay in with electricity and running water. Many don't!
  • Sorry to hear about all of those annoying problems. Sometimes “unexpected events overtake them all” (Ecc 9:11). Cooperate with your relatives and be an industrious problem-solver. See these as learning opportunities and when it happens again, in the future, you’ll be better prepared.
  • Maybe you're cursed. Try an exorcism. Or maybe just a rabbit's foot key ring.

      All about perspective.
