It is Saturday evening, and the best news of the week is:
We Have Toilet!!!
And, yes, I DO realize that this is pretty much how “normal” people have things all the time. My bathroom/laundry area has been fairly low-class and run-down, but it was like that when I moved in before they had time to check for problems and fixes.
But the original problem that started this whole week was that water was misting out of the supply line for the washing machine, which made the floor fall out under the water heater. Fixing that is what led to discovering soooo many other problems. But now lookie how nice the area is. AND, my dead clothes dryer has been removed and taken away. I’ve lived without a functioning dryer for several years now, and while it would be delightful to have one again, it is NOT any sort of priority. I wash when I can and dry on the line outside. Those brown spots on the side are where the washer rubbed against the dryer because the floor underneath was caving in. And now, it is not! Woo-hoo!
Having spent the entire week (since last weekend, when I thoroughly scrubbed my kitchen floor) with all sorts of stuff scattered about the house, my Sunday will be in putting everything back away or finding new homes for some of it because the shelf over the washer is no longer there. The water heater is accessed through the bedroom closet so ALL my hanging stuff and storage bins are on my bed, all my bathroom contents are scatter around the bedroom and living room. UGH.
If I can make myself actually enjoy my environment again, I will be a lot better able to sit down, tally up the dye orders and requests and sort out what can be done and get my brain back into working gear. YAYYYY. So, all in all I am content with where it all stands. Frustrated that I am several days behind schedule, but most of the newly arrived cones are now in hanks and ready to dye, so that will move forward well enough when I get the rest of my kitchen reclaimed.
Whew!!!! And I know my experience is probably trivial compared to what others go through. But it is my experience for the week and I will no dismiss or diminish my experience. It SUCKED. But Monday starts a new work week and I will do all I can to make myself ready to WORK!
