Life's hard ice cream helps

The sentiment for this card is a freebie that I got from TLC.  Unfortunately, the way the week has gone, I need a gallon.  The other day, my brownies turned out real gooie and I didn't think anything of it since it was a turtle mix.  Then when I tried to make some garlic bread the oven would heat and then I had issues with the broiler.  So the next day when I made my banana bread it took almost two hours to bake when it is usually an hour so then I knew my oven was dying.  I don't know if you remember some time back my refrigerator and dishwasher were replaced so it was time for the oven also since all the appliances were replaced when the kitchen was remodeled years ago.  The oven was a base electric oven so I talked my husband into getting a gas oven which will be delivered on Monday.  My husband made the comment to the appliance man that the only thing we hadn't needed to replace was the dryer....and then guess what.  I did the laundry and the after I put things in the dryer they were more damp than went I put them inside.  I gasped, held my breath and told my husband.  So I went back to the appliance store on Thursday alone and ordered a dryer since the washer was replaced within the last two years.  My husband and I went out today since I needed some ink for my printer and when we stopped and I was going to show him the dryer we were going to be getting, I noticed it was on sale for $137.15 off the price I paid on Thursday night so we got the price difference.  Now that was enough to really make me mad.  Most sales start on Sunday and this was just two days later.  My husband said, "Well, they gave us the money back."  I said "Yes, but when I buy my craft supplies, I'm not running back a day or two later to make sure they didn't screw me over on the price."  This is also from a well known store.  URRGH! There it is off my chest now.
