fixing my car (needs new tires). I have had one of those weeks where
it's one thing after another.
The week got off to a good start with the exception of a cough that
was deep in my chest (not a good sign already). I went to work on
Tuesday trying to think of how to help a friend in need when I started
to realize this wasn't just a cough. Luckily, I had Wednesday and
Thursday off to try and shake what is shaping up to be a cold.
I sat downstairs to take advantage of better wifi reception and I
noticed the toilet in the far back bedrooms was bubbling occasionally.
Turns out, we had plumbing back up, and no one knew it until dad got
home and sloshed to his favorite chair. Plumbers and carpet cleaners
were called, and our living room carpet was butchered.
Fine for me since I stayed up stairs in bed most of Thursday. I came
down to see join the neighbors on the driveway as dad was
systematically turning off water around the house to find a leak.
Guess what... Our hotwater heater is leaking again. So now, dad turns
it off when we don't need it, but the shuts my bathroom water off
(because my room is a strangely constructed addition).
Friday, before I headed back to work, plumbers discovered a drain by
our wet bar that had never been capped. It had been for a mini fridge
at one time, but it's funny to see how 10yrs later, the previous
owners did a shoddy job at fixing up the house for sale.
Today, I left the house early to get my tires fixed before work. I'd
rather wait at Starbucks than sit in the lobby of the mechanic, so I
walked across the street. I discovered I had left my license and debit
card at home. So I've been sitting here laughing at myself for the
hilarity of my own shenanigans.
I'm going to hang out at the Wheelmobile today. Maybe I can get on
Wheel of Fortune. :)

I almost died this morning. On a normal day, I park far from the elevators and take the stairs to get a minute amount of exercise. Today was no different. I’m wearing some awesome black heels today, so when I stepped down to the first step, my heel caught on the step I was still on. I felt myself about to tumble head long down the rest of the stairs, my life flashing before my eyes. Luckily, I grabbed the hand rail, so I didn’t fall. Needless to say, I’ll be taking the elevator for the rest of the day.
