Barbara, after living in dorms and apartment buildings I totally understand the frustrations of pay laundry machines. I hope you get it worked out but in the meantime have a good time with Tattrat!

Stacy, prayers going out to you regarding your job situation.

comparing you guys and your serious problems, mine seems silly. i finally told handyman to beat feet. suffice to say he jerked me around just once to often on showing up. after sleeping on my floor so as to get a early start on project, he disappeared for an entire day. showed up at midnight. thinking i would let him in, i guess. i put his stuff on the porch with a note to take his stuff and go home. he was warned a week ago that i was nearing the end of my rope with him.

bad thing he owns me work now. i did get a lot of stuff done at very in-expensive prices. i just decided it was not worth it anymore . wasn't enjoying the projects any more.

not really. we can use everything, just not often. It drains, but REALLY slow....
step-FIL had to work late and couldn't bring his giant snake (haha) up, so DH went to work early to get it on his way, and it will be here at 6:30 am.
Pray for me that its just a stuck piece of pvc and not some other horrible issue that would involve a jackhammer....
:(

the toilets here are cute (I can just hear BuckyTom chiming in on this one) anyway I'm plowing ahead......on top of the tank covering are two buttons.....one bigger than the other....the smaller one is pushed for nbr 1 and the bigger is for ........can you believe.......lots of water pressure.....when it comes to showers it's every man for himself..........warm, very hot, very cold and you really don't know in what order.........you are literally dancing your way thru the shower.......and I have long hair........finally you decide that you're a trooper and that cold showers are good for you hair and make it shinier......believe me your brain will tell you lies........

I won't say anything specific yet - since there's a magnitude on my mind at the moment - but I do wish we all didn't have to have something "external" causing more wrinkles and gray hair than would naturally come anyway! Sheesh! :-)
