With every breath I take, the puppies scooch in a little closer until they are nose to my nose. That's when I get up! The first order of the day was to finish taking out the rock in the back, all the while thinking I could probably save a HUGE amount of money if I did these pavers myself. Instantly the sore muscles said OH HECK NO!!
While waiting for the plumber to arrive, I sequestered myself in the garage for an epic painting session. Someone said "why do you need texture? It's just a garage!" I decided they were right and I would just paint it.
Painting and I don't get along very well. My arms are never long enough. Lucky for me however, there is a break in the action because my rig needs to go to the hospital. Two of four jacks (on opposite corners of course) are not holding me level. Add to that a leaky bedroom seal and this will be a pricey repair. Hey, it's only money!!!
The plumber showed up on time (YAY!) with a completely different idea of what I wanted than what I told the office girl. He thought I wanted to REPLACE the hot water heater. Nope ... just need a pan underneath in case it leaks.
Well how about this $2300 electronic leak detection system instead? Nope ... just need a pan underneath in case it leaks. In the end, I had an estimate of $268 to change one lousy bathroom faucet and only $160 for the pan. I'm sure you know which one I chose. I'll brush up on my faucet installation skills in a day or so. For now, I actually have to call back to make an appointment to get the pan replaced.
About the time he left, I was hit with a nice surprise. The King of the Magic Kingdom came to Tucson to visit relatives, and called to see if I wanted to go out to dinner with him and his lovely Queen. I jumped at the chance. Guess where we went!!
Yup .... Divine Bovine ... although I will tell you, this is probably the last time I will EVER go there. I had no idea this burger and sweet potato fries came to a breathtaking $18.57. YIKES!!! I almost passed out!!
And so I'm off to the repair shop, leaving you with another gorgeous sunSET this time. I'm taking this picture with me so as to remain calm when I hear what the repair bill will be.
If you don't hear from me, it's because I had a heart attack when I heard the price, died and went to HEAVEN!!! I'm hoping I'll still be here tomorrow to tell you what happened.
