2014 Water Saga: 2014 – The Year of Home Repair

I am so fucking over it.

Repairs for The Great Flood are in process. Waiting on a re-scope or something for the floor from the insurance company because it is laminate and does need to be replaced.

I have been a zen master for that whole thing.

However, finding out Friday that a leak was coming from my condo and then learning that I can’t use my shower until I get the control valve replaced…yeah, that about did me in. Anyone who knows me fairly well knows I am pretty anal about showering everyday. It’s like brushing my teeth. I don’t feel quite human without it. All my dreams about not being able to shower never came up with this scenario. Fortunately my office, which I live a block from, has a shower. So I’m not without options. But Jesus fucking Christ, my shower? I suppose it’s better than the toilet. But way to hit me where it hurts, gods of home repair.

In other news, I have been trying for over a month to get my birth control filled. Finally found out last week it’s been a no go because my doctor keeps okaying one month instead of three–and if I’ve already covered this, apologies, but fucking ugh. My faux Zoloft go re-upped with no issue, but oh, not, not the birth control. Which means my hormones are all over the fucking place so the shower issue is kind of a mountain out of a mole hill but still. Ugh. I suppose I should be happy it’s not some medication I need for survival, just for sanity and shit. But sanity’s overrated, right?

So yeah, I’m not a fun person to be around right now.

Silver linings?

Um, I found that a bucket, a large Pyrex measuring cup, and wash cloth will do in a pinch for not having a shower. However, the work shower is a better option. As long as I remember all the essentials.

In other non-bitchy news, the Lego Marvel Heroes game is bloody brilliant and has sucked up way too much of my time. When not playing that, I wasted my weekend re-watching the Alien Quadrology because I have no idea.

That’s where things stand now. Blegh. And now it’s Monday on top of it all. Woo hoo.
