I've written a lot lately, which is unusual, but it hasn't been complaining every single day though.
I ended up just getting a new water heater.
Yay for home ownership and unexpected labor and expenses...
I got paid that day but it hadn't hit my account yet. yay for credit cards...
When asked how old my water heater was, I said Well, the condo was built back in 2004 and sure enough I looked it up and it said Apr of 2004. 12 years. Pretty good for this state and its hard water.
I dunno about putting new parts on such an old thing. I had already replaced the valve like three years ago.
That was a two day project that shouldn't have been... We'll just say we made a lot of friends at Home Depo over the weekend. Just something else to drag out my already bad week.
It was finally over, my bad weekend and the project, by Saturday night. It only took like 45 minutes to get hot water. Crazy. And the old water heater was gone by Monday night when I advertised to the scrappers and recylers.
In other news: I got my pic taken at Target. The last time I did pics I did it at Kmart and it was crappy and dumb and they are now out of business. I took pics with Max before he died back in 2013 or 2014. Other than that I've only done family pics.
I didn't have a water heater so I hadn't taken a shower in a while and my hair turned into a big fro and I figured I shouldn't take pictures like that. I ran to my uncles to use his shower. Soft water. Ugh. Then I ran to get pictures done. We'll just say I'm grateful for a water heater and won't take showers for granted for a bit.
But I found a really good deal only $11 for like 15 pictures and an hour of my time. Something to post on Facebook at least. I've posted like three times this year, yay! All pics of me on two vacations and then this.
I found it actually helped my self esteem rather than cut it down like I thought. Maybe I can still do some cute pics. Maybe Iz cuter than I think.
The annual Halloween dance came and went. I went as a pumpkin. Wore the right clothes this time as not to get super hot while dancing all night. Jenny and I got a pic together in the booth this time. I'll add that to my collection of booth pics. I still think about Camille and Leslie a lot...
There was another Halloween dance on Poppy Lane, but most of those kids were born in the 1990's so I didn't even bother with that. I stole some candy and a donut and hightailed it. Save that slow dancing awkwardness for someone else.
This week is much better than last week. No boys talked to me. :D
