it is too freaking bad...

you can't boil freaking water by just being freaking pissed off.

no lie... in the last hour...i have boiled 7 kettles of water, 4 pots of water on the hot plate, and 6 individual liters of water in the microwave (it is a small microwave...) and i am still going to just end up with barely a lukewarm bath. the hot water tank is crapping out even more than it was yesterday. by the time the new water has boiled, the old water has cooled off!

i want a god damn life where i just turn on the freaking tap and have a hot bath in my own freaking house whenever i want just like everyone else!

deep breath, be patient carol..just one more freaking week and then my son in law will be free to look at our water problems and put in a new hot water tank.



we might not get caught but it is against the rules so one person one vote per day. if we don't win by doing it the way they have set the contest up...oh well, we'll live.

so sorry about max barb..he was such a sweet dog!


There won't be any problems with voting from your home computer and then voting again from work (as long as you don't work from home, haha.) Different IP addresses.


omg Im sorry I only did it more! I didn't know that.
Also I have some news about your futon. Can you call me on my cell or can I come by and see you after work today?


ann if you read the blog i am trying to get ahold of you cant get through on your email call me 8267287 or 2265032 thanks.


one vote per person each day double dipping...we will be disqualified.


I'm probably the last to know, but I voted from home on my iphone for the Shelter Challenge, then got to work and voted again from my desktop!


On a completely different topic, Jingles laid an egg last Sunday while Marta & I were there. Marta found the broken egg as we were getting ready to leave - I guess Jingles had stepped on it. At least we know she's not going to surprise us like Nugget did, and turn out to be a cockerel!!

I had to do that once, it was no fun. I hope it gets fixed soon.


It begs the question, why aren't bathtubs insulated like those awesome thermoses? I hope your hot water tank is fixed soon! Sending heating thoughts your way!
