I’ve been going around with a swelled head this afternoon after reading Angela James‘ comments about me over on Marcia James’ latest James Gang post. Seriously, everyone here was subjected to another Price is Right bounce. (Believe me, it’s not a pretty sight when I bounce.)

I guess I bounced too hard because we went down in the basement to where we keep our freezer to find fixings for dinner, GG and I stepped onto a carpet that squished beneath our feet. Oh oh.

Our hot water heater … cracked a lining, split a seam … did something, but the basement’s now flooded.

So on tomorrow’s schedule is lifting the soaked carpet, cleaning the path so the repair people can get to the hot water heater which is wedged between the furnace and a concrete slab. The only way they’re going to be able to get to it is if we tear down a wall, which is of course at the bottom of the stairs. It’s gonna be ugly, folks. Butt ugly. And so’s my mood.

What’s that saying about pride going before a fall?

Someone means to keep me humble

    What a Wonderful comment by Angela about you!!!

    I knew it all along. 🙂 Big Smiles.

    Sorry about the water heater. Ours busted when we moved in, next day in fact. However, ours is in the attic and decided to leak right on top of a light fixture in my kitchen. It’s always something to bring us back into reality.

    Dani – water and electricity mixing? Yikes!

    Sue – yes, we put down a new one about 8 months ago, but luckily enough the water hasn’t touched it.

    Bonnie, Amy and Wylie – WOOTS and SQUEEING all around here too (gently bouncing so I don’t break anything else)

    Lastnerve – Welcome! And thanks for visiting my website. Rae did a beautiful job with it. And yes, that squishy feeling is nasty, isn’t it?
