Today is wash day. I wash my clothes and bedding. Real exciting!
Do you have a specific day for household chores?
I’m anxious to get things decluttered and cleaned up around here. But I have to sit next to Abi, so I’m not getting much done. If I take my hand off of her that dog will somehow get into trouble.
I’ve been away from the computer a bit. Things got really exciting around here all of a sudden.
My tub converter, that thingie in the middle of the hot and cold spigots, broke over the weekend.
So when I went to take a bath, I didn’t hardly get any water. And it showered down on me from my handheld shower thing while I sat there. Took a shower and water was spraying out of everywhere, so barely got a shower.
Israel comes over and he has to shut down the water in the other three apartments on my side of the four-plex tomorrow morning, as well as the ones behind us. That man who doesn’t like my dogs will just be dandy pleased with me.
Then Israel asked if he could get into one of my two walk-in closets in my bedroom. Naturally I had it stuffed with everything. After Christmas, DECLUTTERING and PURGING big time.
He needed to get to the back of the tub. We start moving things out. Me holding Abi and dragging out with one hand, and we find water all over the floor.
So Israel drags the stuff out and cleans it up and figures out what all he needs to fix all this.
I order us a pizza because as you know I haven’t left Abi in two weeks, so no going to get groceries. And by then I’m starved and he’s been cleaning and cleaning and doing and didn’t get to go to lunch, and I figure the least I owe him is a couple of pieces of pizza.
I’m totally exhausted from carrying this dog around and not getting a good shower or bath to relax in.
So I decided, if he’s going to change the spigot (you know, the ugly kind with the plastic diverter in the middle) out tomorrow and they’re paying for it, then I’m running to Lowes to get one for the bathroom sink faucet.
When Volare worked here I bought one for the kitchen because I hated that one too. You know that typically apartment complexes buy the cheapest things they can buy. So then I’ll have them all changed out.
And then I find I have to go to the bank, which is in the opposite direction from Lowes. What to do about Abi?
I put Abi and Charlie in the bathroom with their bed, close the toilet lid, look around to see if there’s anything they can get into, turn the lamp on, shut the door and head out.
I grab a new faucet at Lowes and go to the bank. I was maybe gone 30 minutes. I get home and when I open the bathroom door, Abi is drenched. DRENCHED!
I had closed the toilet lid. There was no water on. There was no water on the floor. It is a huge mystery.
Israel comes to make sure there are no more leaks. Nope.
So, I ask you, how did Ms. Abi get herself wet from head to toe? And Charlie is dry as a bone?
