Hi all! I'm still here! Sorta. The drama in SoCal continues - we had a pipe burst right after the frost and have had no water for over a week now. We have to pay out of pocket to get the house repiped long story....but the plumbers can't start until this Friday or next Monday! So, we will have no water for another 2 weeks. We thought we could get at least cold water running, but there appears to be a problem with both the hot and the cold. It's been a mess. 3 rooms were affected and all the contents of those rooms are all over the house (including the kitchen!) The carpet was torn up, the walls torn through, etc. It feels like it's been one thing after another lately....
I'm very tired.....the fatigue is getting to me, I'm sure the stress isn't helping. Luckily, my joints are trying to behave, but they are not happy....hopefully I can get through this mess before they completely retaliate on me.
Yalinda, I'm so sorry to hear about the turkey mess, the stomach issues (which I'd have checked out if it's been going on for a while) and the joints.
Erin, I am glad your honey's weekend getaway helps, I hope you start feeling better soon.
Everyone else - feel better, stay healthy, stay WARM!
Thanks Yalinda! To get away from this mess and have running water! However, we were hit with rain, that's probably why my knee and feet have been so bad. I'm not sure I could handle snow! I sure miss it - I grew up in Mass and remeber the seasonally late storm that made us have to dig ourselves OUT of the house. As a kid, that was cool, I'm sure my parents weren't too happy though!
We are adapting, and the stress is lessening.....but there is so much to do! At least we have a plumber locked in, I know what walls to clear off now, and God-willing all will go smoothly for us to get this all taken care of quickly, efficiently, and with the least amount of hassle as possible!
I see rhuemy today - with all this mess, I forgot to get my bloodwork done! Whoops! But, I need a refill on my Plaquenil and that just cannot wait!
I hope you feel better soon!
