Daddy and i slept in late today. It was so desperately needed!! Ran to pick up our laundry from a friends house down the street. What a nice gift not taking all of our laundry to the laundromat is!! Truly. ♥ i think just about all of our clothes are clean now. With all the disruption lately, we’ve missed things here and there. We’re pretty close.
Last night i blew the fuse in the kitchen which has the microwave, stove and fridge on it. Stove has been sitting in the middle of the dining room for over a week now so that those massive heaters and fans can run 24/7 drying out the space. i turned on the microwave and BOOM! No more electricity. It’s blown beyond just resetting the fuse in the circuit box outside. It needs replacing. We’re not talking today about how old the circuit box is and that it’s way out of code. Just did… but that’s all i’m saying. 😛
Daddy came up with the brilliant plan of moving the fridge so it’s plugged into an outlet that works. Extension cord got the microwave running, too.
Looking around the place, it’s hard to stay positive. i’m just about ready to hop ship and land wherever i land to be totally honest. i’ll include pictures a little farther down. We still have no hot water and there are no baths or showers coming anytime soon. Not enough water pressure. Buckets and bottles or sun warmed water do the trick. i was thanking Daddy for not putting me in slave mode to the point of boiling water to fill the tub for Him…. and me after. We have one of those little electric tea kettles that would do the job… just take forever. Daddy laughed and told me He’d thought of it. ;P i laughed because i know there’s a bit of truth in there. Maybe one day i will just to please Him. For Daddy, i’d put the work in.
i have a counter top turkey roaster that i just thought about plopping on the living room floor to bake Daddy and me dinner. Very unconventional. lol Is there any part of this scenario that’s conventional?? Nope. At least i have a plan for a nice dinner for Daddy when He gets home from work tonight!!!! ♥ That one thought just brightened my day and made things feel a little more manageable.
The kitchen, as you can see, is totally useless. My hardwood floors are gone along with the pretty granite counter tops. Home is anything but comfortable right now. i like to remember that anywhere Daddy and i are together is Home and all will be ok. This will all be over soon. *crossing my fingers*
