Plumbers were here

I walked into my bathroom this morning and discovered i had no running water. Then I noticed that water had leaked from the upstairs and pooled behind the paint on the wall forming a huge blister. I wasn't happy, but I had no time to do anything. I left a note on the door for the plumbers that I would be back by 11:30.

I called Oldest Brother who was waiting outside for me, and he drove me to therapy. We had coffee and donuts from Dunkin' Donuts too.

After therapy I came back, and the super was here, I showed him the bulge and he said the plumbers would fix it. And he changed my light bulb in the living room for me, which has been blown out for. a long time. I think I said before, I tried twice but couldn't get the fixture unscrewed to change it. He used a wrench. So I now have two light bulbs working in the living room.

The plumbers came and needed access to under the bathroom sink, my closet in the bed room, and under the kitchen sink, which meant I had to empty two cabinets and the closet so they could work.

There was no safe place to lock Sybil so she spent the day in the cat carrier which she did not like. And no cleaning in the kitchen or bathroom could get done. So I used the time to shred my accumulated mail. I still had stuff from when I first moved in. So it took awhile, but the shredding is done.

The plumbers finished up and left, but they left a big hole in the wall, covered with plastic, which is going to have to be fixed by carpenters the next day I have off work. Friday again. Frustrating. They did drain the water in the bulge though.

Anyway, After they left, Oldest Brother and I were able to get dinner, which we did at Uncle Bill's Diner. The FWiB called and we had a very short, but nice talk.

I called The Kid, and we talked briefly, she still won't commit to what we're doing for Christmas.

Oldest Brother helped me put away all the things I had to empty out of the closet and cabinets. And I did a little tidying in the living room. Then [personal profile] mashfanficchick called and asked if we wanted to meet up with her and her mother and Theo at McDonald's? Yes, we did. So we packed up the shredder and some other stuff Oldest Brother had for her, and went there.

Had a good time playing with Theo and hanging out. And finally we left and Oldest Brother brought me home and here I am.

Good news for the day, Michael Flynn indicted and pleading guilty. Bad nwes, looks like the horrific tax bill is going to pass.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. The Kid.

3. Friends.

4. My therapist.

5. Working light bulb in the living room.

6. Shredding done.
