How Do You Handle Unexpected Challenges In Your Day?

My husband picks up the mail every night when he gets home from work. On Wednesday, this is what he found:
This letter is marked November 30 and we got the letter December 2.  At least 24 gallons of water every day for 4 days has been leaking, somewhere in the water system of our home.

Bah Hum-Bug! Yes, I said it!

Growing up I remember cutting a comic out of the Sunday paper for my dad, the Lockhorn's, depicting Mr. Lockhorn begrudgingly putting up Christmas lights, spelling out Humbug in the front bushes.  That's kind of my mood this year.  Not kind of, that IS my mood this year.

I haven't put up a single decoration and I really don't care if I do or not.  When we built our home my husband wanted a tall Christmas tree and now, well, I really despise that tree and have an adult temper tantrum (that's a real thing you know) every time I have to put the lights on.  I'm getting too old to be standing on a ladder precariously balancing in a ridiculous effort to string lights on a "pre-strung" tree that hasn't worked from day one (but don't get me started on that one).

My boys are grown and really don't care if I decorate or not so I'm giving myself permission to opt out this year.  It's really quite a relief.   Have you ever had a year where you just weren't in the mood for all that jazz and decided to keep it simple?  The world didn't end, did it?
