Still waiting on that hot water. I ran over to Lowe's this morning, early, and got the part. Now all I need is a tiny German man to make his way over and install it. He can come in and admire the dirty dishes in the sink that have built up over a couple of days with no hot water. Girlie Girl got her shower at her dad's and I got my sexy sponge bath, so I think our hygiene is handled for the moment...but, dude, he better get over there today.
And guess what else? My car broke down! It happened last night as I was driving home from work. Of course it was one of my nights, so it was about 9:30 when it happened. Luckily, I was quite near home. My car just...stopped. Ooops, no power. I called Girlie Girl to come over with her Auto Club card. I have one too, but I've already burned through my uses for this year. Her grandma got her one of the de-luxe ones, so we have that at least. I had the car towed to WTG's again. This all sounds familiar, right? haha! Yeah. His mechanic can look at it, hopefully today. Meanwhile, I can drive Girlie Girl's car. So, it all could be worse. I have my finger's crossed that it won't be anything too crazy. Doesn't matter how much it is, I will probably have to borrow from my poor mom...but I'd rather it be less than more, of course.
So, meh, a couple little issues, but otherwise I can't complain. And as I mentioned, even those little issues could be worse. I'm very fortunate in many ways. I have people around me willing to help. It is nice to be reminded of that. I'm used to being broke and owing people money, I will get through this. Best of all, it isn't really just me that has to get through this. As DR reminded me when I was telling him about all of this, we are in this together...we are, in fact, a WE (not to be confused with a Wii). Anyway, it made me feel incredibly cared for and fortunate. So, if you need a glass half full view, come around here. I'm pouring..
