For once, peaceful....


Right now, I feel peace. The only sounds I hear are the tapping of the keyboard, and the refrigerator. And my daughter's alarm clock, because she's using it to put herself to sleep. I know my floor is picked up, my dishes are washed, my son will sleep most of the night, and I will be able to get a good night's sleep as well. I will be going into the living room soon, watching some late night news, then turning in. I'm getting projects done, of all kinds...crochet, and cleaning :-)

The only problem weighing on my mind is the washroom, and of that I have no control. This weekend I discovered a large wet spot on the carpet between the kitchen and the washroom. At first I thought it was my basket of towels, because at that time it was just a pile of towels sitting on the floor, and there was at least 2 very wet items in the pile from washing the floors. I moved them into an available basket, and discovered after another run of the washer, it had gotten worse. I took a harder look at it, and discovered that the water was not coming from the basket, or the washer, but from what now looks to be the wall. At first I thought it was a pipe coming out of the wall leading to the washer, but our resident manager took at look at it, and he's pretty sure it's in the wall. That makes me concerned---especially since he hasn't been able to get the plumbing company over in aboout a week. I don't know how long it's gone on and gotten to the point it's at now, but I definitely don't want it to get any worse!!!

But as soon as I get up from here, and after I'm done watching tv, I will go to bed, and hopefully this will all be solved in the morning. :-)

I plan on using my new mop possibly first in the washroom. I hope someone comes soon, so I know how soon I will be able to use it in there. It needs it!!! Posted by Picasa
