Gorgeous!

I just can't describe what a breathtaking site I am looking at right now! the last rays of the sunset reflecting on the white clouds that look like snow on top of the snow covered Jura mountains.! The earth is beautiful.

The list of things I have to do today keeps getting longer.
It's making me grumpy. Every time I turn around there's another pile
of stuff that I have to put away, pick up, clean or take to the garbage.

you and me both, pds!

I'm telling myself to pay the bills, do the laundry, run the errands and grocery shop. Apparently I'm not listening, as I'm still here on the computer!

Yep.. me too Jkath. I really really need to get started.
But... DC is more fun that doing dishes ( did I mention that my water is having a pressure problem? Only in the kitchen sink though... it just kind of dribbles out. We can't find any leaks or anything and the rest of the water is fine. Not a big deal I guess... It just means that I have to take all the dishes into the laundryroom to wash or at least pre-rinse before loading them into the dishwasher.)

What is on my mind right now is switching careers. I can't stand my job anymore and really want to work with food and also be my own boss (tall order to fill). Right now I am looking into franchises I could buy. I am very interested in the stores where people come in and make up meals to take home. They are popping up all over the place. Seems like something that would be right up my alley.

Try this:
unscrew the little end cap thingy right where the water comes out of the faucet (it's about 1/2" tall. Take out the little screen and the rubber washer.
My guess is that you have some rocks in the screen (typical from hard water, etc) that are preventing a full flow to come out.

Let me know if it works

Thanks Jkath. It will require a huge change of life for me and my whole family as well as my extended family. We would need to sell our house and move in with my in-laws. They would need to add an addition onto their house. I would probably have to give up one of my cats. DW and I talked about it for a while today and decided that we both would like to try this if we are able to do it.
