If you follow my twitters, you know that yesterday was spent fixing and tolerating numerous technological breakdowns.
My Tivo broke, my 6 month old IMac's operating system crashed, my home internet went out, and when I tried to make the best of my circa 1980's office situation by catching up on my mailings and filing, my copier broke down!
I had no choice but to give up and take a walk. Thankfully my IPod still worked. It was my only link to sanity.
I woke this morning with the hope today would be better. I'd fixed my Tivo, fixed my internet connection, found a way to go around the problem with my copier (temporarily), and the computer repair guy was due tonight at 7pm.
I sat down in front of my ancient laptop, waiting (somewhat) patiently as it's aging brain slowly computed each and every command. I was distracted by a foreign sound. Water. Dripping. Dripping.
I turned toward the sound coming from under my kitchen sink - NEVER good news. Fretfully I opened the cabinet as water rushed out onto me and the hardwood floor.
The cabinet under my kitchen sink is chock full with household goodies: a garbage can for recycling, a box of garbage liners, extra water filters, sponges, dishwashing liquid, a box of Brillo pads, and an under sink water filtering system.
It was this system, normally a welcome addition to our household, that for some unknown reason, was leaking it's purified drinking water all over the wood cabinet, soaking everything in it's wake.
So, having wasted yet another morning cleaning up household "messes", I am desperate to find something to smile about.
Here is a picture of one nice moment I had yesterday. I'm sharing it with Candid Carrie and her Phriday Photo Phinish Phiesta and I'm sharing it with you. It makes me smile.
Out of desperation to calm my
destructive annoying highly-energetic puppy and take back control of my house, I recently taught my water phobic Labrador how to swim.
Have a nice weekend. I hope I will.
