what, Was it friday the 13th or something!?!?
Well, yesterday was another one of "those days" Just like the one I had earlier this week...|
First off was in the afternoon when I was watering the garden. As I am reeling in the garden hose, I spot my schoolbooks that I had put under the hose reel the day we got off on break...oh and lookie there, water is dripping on ALL FOUR 4 OF MY BOOKS!!! I threw the hose nozzel down so hard it shattered into 5 pieces!! Right then, I grabbed them, ran into the house, got a towel, started drying them, but it needed more. Those books would cost me $60 A PIECE to replace, and 4 times that, $240 at this point means A LOT to me, so I go to the nearest thing.... my bed, yup, I threw the books under the sheets in hope of them drying a bit faster. And at this moment, they are dripping wet in my bed, juuuuust great...
Then the next mishap comes about half an hour before dinner, lets just say that right after dinner I was repairing our dishes cupboard...ayee, can you see it coming?
One of the braces holding up a shelf in our cupboard broke, sending an avalanche of corningware and other serving platters to the ground...and...I was stuck with cleaning up the shattered mess. I also got to fix the broken shelf.
The funny twist in this is...well, I found the piece of the brace that flew across the kitchen floor: It was half a shim with 2 staples in it, and as I remember, that was what I had put in MYSELF as a quick fix to that VERY SAME problem THREE YEARS AGO!!! So in turn, it was all my fault...but this time when I fixed it, I used not a staple but a 15 mil 2 inch long wood screw and not a shim wood, but a chunk off of the nearest 2"x4" So that shouldnt repeat itself for a LOONG while. My internet speeds are for the most part back to normal. WHEW I guess that turned into a rant, oh well...
The new music for the next couple days is gonna be Tegan And Sara - My Number...
Ow my hands hurt from typing all that in only 5 minutes!
