This might get to be a regular post the way things have been going around here. I swear the following events happened within 7 days of each other.

Pain in the ass? Gallon jug of sweet tea spilled all over the kitchen floor.
Silver lining? Very clean floor.
My favorite game of "What's that Smell?" leads to finding leak under sink.
Silver lining? Cabinet gets much needed purge and cleaning.
Bonus? Sink fix also fixes garbage disposal.
Bonus round of "Could this week get much worse?" Bottle of rum falls and breaks in pantry.
Silver lining? Bottom of pantry gets cleaned.
Bonus? Alcohol is an excellent cleaning agent. Who knew?

Anyone else been searching for a silver lining these days?


Rum on the floor= clean and disinfected! :)

I have been blessed with only mild irritants lately and not in need of finding the silver lining.

I am so bad at that...I could take a page out of your book!

Pain in the ass? Having to repaint the whole house after we hired and PAID someone to do the job and they sucked so magnificently at it that it all has to be redone.

Silver lining? Not having to make excuses for not boinking the painter that was hitting on me because he was fired and asked never to return to the property.

Bonus? Healthy shot to the self-esteem that someone was hitting on me while I was sporting a ponytail and my grungy work clothes.

Ah...good times...

Spending 5 days with the most obnoxious woman I've ever met. Bonus? Bonding with new friends over most obnoxious woman we've ever met.

I've been lucky lately - nothing awful or even remotely annoying happening.

However, if my bottle of Canadian Club were to break and end up on the floor, my perception of my luck might change ;-)

cat puke on floor = at least it wasn't on the carpet.

Pretty lame, but i was grateful.

A buyer of mine spent his down payment money to pay off credit cards -- won't be able to buy for 10 months. The silver lining? He's also our tenant. :-)

Way to look at it! I was over come with ants this summer...silver lining- totally clean kitchen from floor to cupboards! :)

Big time thunderstorms rolling through have put our humidity back into "outdoor sauna" factor...

Silver lining? The garden has been watered quite well!

Thanks for the attitude check today!

What does it say about me that my heart actually skipped a beat in horror that your rum broke?

Perhaps I should have kept that thought to myself?
