It's a rainy, lazy day. It took more effort than usual to get me out of bed. Fawn wasn't helping. The puppy was snuggled in next to me and ... well, that dog never wants to get up if she's snuggled next to someone.|
I'm sipping a cup of coffee I made from bottled water. No surprise there. I always make my coffee from bottled water. However, today I had no choice. My house has no water right now. I first noticed that when I tried flushing. When nothing happened I checked the bathroom sink. Nothing. Just now I tried washing a bowl in the kitchen sink. I had forgot there was no tap water. I guess I'll wash that bowl later.
Yesterday I spent the last of my pocket money on painter's tape. I have a big picture window on my porch. I think I may try to put the tape on the edges of the glass and paint that window trim if I get a good size break in the rain. Even if I don't the window's under an overhang and should still be dry enough, I hope.
Well, yesterday I also called that #800 number for franchise information. It was a recording that took my call. "Answer only yes or no to all these questions, please" ... yadda, yadda, yadda. I went through all that, but dealing with a recording made me lower my opinion of the company that is going to help me pick a franchise. I also had a brain fart while dealing with them. I think I gave them Mom's address instead of mine. Oh well, I'll still get anything they send.
Speaking of brain farts, I couldn't believe it. The other day I couldn't remember the password to the aol email address where the Klingon mailing list is sent to me. It was one of several passwords that I use several times a week and thought I didn't even need to write it down. Well, I eventually pieced it together, but ... well, that was unsettling for several reasons.
Well, about the only other thing I'm thinking to mention is an issue I don't want to do more than hint about here. So I guess it's time to end this here. Later all.
update: I was sitting here listening to some baseball talk on the radio before heading out to paint that window when I heard this weird rattling noise. Fawn starting barking and just as I started standing to check what it was, I realized. I have water again.
