    well started off the day going to take care of a friends dogs and cats while away a few day...come home and decide to actually do some work out side.

    Decided to clean up the trash heap on the back porch....what used to be where we lived before hurricane isabell come thru...kitchen was left whole and back bedroom closet . the rest used for a porch of sorts.

    wellllll step over a soft spot and........yep found a new one and right down i went leg thru the newly made hole and other knee up to my chin.... [​IMG] so now imagine a 200+ lb woman trying to get up out of that.... [​IMG] so dh comes back from taking trash to van .....finally sees where i am at , and all he can say is.....don't you know not to step on the rotten spots? [​IMG]

    Of course i know it....it is a new one! duh! well he can't help since his heart operation ,but i did kinda think it was worth a are you ok.. ?[​IMG], so pick myself up and go ck for damages and only a feww scraps...go back out to do some ..being careful and watch where stepping.

    Get some more done move a trash can and.........yep! [​IMG] found another with the OTHER LEG! [​IMG]
    Get myself back up and ck for damages....a few more scraps...so have two matching legs with scraps on them.

    Said to heck with it ....[​IMG] took a bath and watched westerns the rest of the afternoon. .......so how did your day go.?

    my boiler pert near blew up and sent my 2 little girls running in opposite directions screaming and crying.

    pressure relief valve blew....water all in the basement....billow of steam traveled up the basement stairs and made a HORRIBLE noise...reminiscent of ? a tornado.

    come to find out it was the previous repair guys fault...he forgot to hook a wire up that tells the boiler to stop heating. sigh.

    this fav repair guy of mine says to me tonight what the other guy (same co.) did was VERY VERY dangerous. bigger sigh.


    but before that I went out with 15 mommies, knew 2, and made friends with 3 and shared some good laughs over lunch today.

    and my heats back on and my boiler has survived another trial....if she can just hold out for the rest of the season....and I can win the lottery for a new one....or get an "extreme home" make-over suggested my boiler repair guy....

    what do you think he means by that? [​IMG]

    My 7 year old likes watching that show with me...she would love to go to disney world and come back to a new room.


    oh sigh.

    Well, you sounded like you've been worse for wear. I hope your body recovers from the aches and pains you're probably feeling from your fall. Ouchy mama.

    hugs,
    gretchen

    That's a sure sign it's going to be one of "those" days!

    So my day.... My parent's are selling the house I live in (bought for investment purposes before the stupid recession) and the house directly next door is for sale, too. Just got word that someone is going to buy the one next door. The reasons they cited for picking the other one over ours, are not something we can change (can't add another garage bay...) but it's a great day when someone basically says that your house isn't good enough.
