.....one should not post on their blog when they are tired/depressed/having a pity party!
Sorry for the downer post yesterday. I almost deleted it this morning, but--after all--this is my journal, so I guess it stays.
It's hard (for me) to get in the mood to spring clean when the outside weather is gray, cold, rain dripping days with 4" of snow predicted! I have some how lost my, smile and push forward attitude. Where it went, I have no clue. How to get it back, seems a mystery.
The water heater repairman--expected between 12 & 4, called at 10:00. He checked the vents and lit the pilot light. He explained to me that these kinds of heaters are vented through the roof AND through the floor. Any little cross breeze can poof out the pilot light.
"So there is no way I can fix the problem? I have no control over it?"
"Nope," he said, "It's like an act of God."
After he left, I hurried up and got my garbage out for pick-up. Most times I set it out the night before, but it was raining and cold last night, so I decided to wait. Luckily, they didn't come today until after 2:00. So, for all my planning of taking it out when the weather was better, I got to haul it out in the cold, wet falling rain/snow. I'm brilliant!!!
Put the closet back together, watched my Soap, did the last load of laundry and a full dishwasher of dishes.
Tomorrow I get to go to the dentist and on the way home, stop at Walmart for cat food, milk and something to eat.
My life is so exciting I can barely stand it!
