Phew! What a day!
The hot water heater is replaced and we now have hot water again! Yay!
But while I was waiting for them to arrive I decided to vacuum. I ran my upright over the living room and front hallway but realized that it was only moving the dust around not actually sucking it up. Arrrgh. So I figured I could at least do the stairs, so I grabbed the little handheld vacuum and started it up. Except its beater bar wasn’t working. @#$&(# doesn’t even begin to describe what I was saying, or what I was feeling at that point.
Anyway, I got NO writing done today. Again! This has GOT to stop. I’m going to take my iBook and head to the library next week and force myself to write forward. (You watch, it’ll snow a blizzard or be freezing rain every day the way my luck is going.)
Tomorrow is the monthly Toronto Romance Writers’ meeting. If Private Property weren’t coming out this month, I don’t know if I’d be going because I have so much to do here. Although the ladies over at the TRW have so much spirit and energy that they give me a boost that usually gets me back on track.
However, it is January, and they are, of course, calling for isolated flurries. So as is the usual phrase I have to use this time of year … I guess it’ll depend upon the weather. And if my car starts. I’m afraid to touch anything electrical at this point.
