My contractor just told me my water problems are a bit worse than originally believed and on top of everything I need a new mechanism for my garage door because the old motor gave out but he reassured me not to worry that he was going to take care of me and make sure everything is fixed. Some things will be done today and some things will be done tomorrow. I may spring some leaks that will have to be repaired as well but at least, the work is being done and it will be done right. All the reassurance made me feel so much better. It is just going to be a very big bill. I don't think that I am going to take for granted running water any time soon. lol

Stacy taught me how to post pictures and I have been smiling a lot as I send them to people.
Thanks, Stacy. It has helped as I am waiting for my plumbing to get straightened out.

Well, looks like I need a new garage door and hot water heater and some walls in the garage fixed. Having insurance makes me smile.

What made me smile is my wonderful, thoughtful friends here at DC.

Food related things that also made me smile are National Pie Day, remembering another food day, August 10th which is National Leave a Zucchini on Your Neighbor's Porch Day (not joking!), and a huge pot (11 quarts) of Hamburger Stew (also called Girl Scout Stew when my mom learned to make it in Girl Scouts) on the stove (yep, we're eating late as usual). Hopefully we should have some leftovers.

My boyfriend's friend called last night and is going to give me a copy of the latest software that I have wanted to learn. It's normally VERY expensive. I can't wait to install it and start learning.
