A blast from the past

Last night I had a wonderful evening with an old friend. We had a fabulous time at Ruby Tuesdays catching up on each others lives. It seems like just yesterday we were playing in our spaceship on top of the washing machine and dryer pressing buttons made of tape for our instant food and instant launch to space and back home. Oh the days of being a child and not having to worry about bills, laundry, cleaning and what others think.  Back then it was easy to make friends. You didn't have to do anything but ask a simple name... if that. The other day I was at the park with my nieces. The kids there were playing a game of monsters. Only when it was time to leave was the question of "what is your name?" even mentioned. If only it was that easy to make friends and keep them for all your life. It was so nice to be able to talk with an old friend. Things have for sure changed in each of our lives but that friendship is still there. I'm so glad that I got a chance to sit and talk with him. I missed his company and hearing about his life.

Look what has happened now

So this last week has been quite eventful. My wonderful husband decided to fix the broken element in the water heater. When they say the water heater is the first thing to go out when you move somewhere they are totally right. The water temperature here has been less then desirable but it has sufficed for the last 11 months or so. Jordan was a wonderful husband and got all the tools he need to get the job done and did. Well in the process of fixing the water heater he had to shut off the main water to the house.... well the spicket broke. We had no water in our house for a good 5 or so hours. We call our land lord and have him come up and fix it for us. Well he fixed it so that we had water but we also had a pretty big leak. He said oh usually they just fix themselves so just leave the leak alone and it will be fine. In the mean time the water was everywhere in the laundry room. Every time that you would step on the floor water would seep up through the tiles. You may say now that is pretty bad but Jordan fixed it the next day and now we only have a minor leak that it not threatening to flood the laundry room. So those purchasing a house in the future remember that your water heater is going to go out shortly after you move in and you will need to replace it.
