monday nite, i got home around 9pm from work. i'm feelin' good, not so tired so me and the dog head to the local neighbourhood school for some illegal offleash activities. i try not to let him off leash where he isn't allowed but it's late, there is no one in site, and there's snow! we have a blast, he's running around like a crazy dog, eating snow, chasing snowballs and a regular ball, and generally being a bigger goof than usual. we play until we lose the ball in the snow. apparently a keen sense of smell is not my dog's strong point.
we go home, and i'm feelin' good. not too tired. i figure i will kick back and relax, watch a little tv, catch 'the hour' and then go to bed.
however, this is not to be. my brother is getting ready for work (he works graveyards) and i can hear him running a bath. he then says, there is no hot water. he goes downstairs and.. water everywhere! as i told my friend today, our hot water tank is broken. :(
so, instead of chillin', i am mopping up water, and moving crap around our basement so that everything is clear for whoever we can get to fix it. and then i'm so tired, that i have to go to sleep and get up early (5am!) to finish it. i call work and tell them i can't come in, and they are totally cool with it. and then it's time to call the plumber. have you ever tried to call a plumber in cold weather?! i was on hold forever, and they can't get here until tomorrow (but they are very nice so that is ok). so i ended up going to work anyways.
i have no hot water and today was a killer day. all i want to do is soak in the tub. but alas, no such luck.
new nook - There has been a great deal of hiatusing going on around these parts lately. The new hammock is an especially delicious place to read away those hot summe...
