It's been a lovely weekend. The plumber has been here for the past 4 1/2 hours, trying to determine why we had a waterfall of suspiciously unclean water in the basement. Lovely. Turns out, he's stumped. But he is sure that if we take showers, do dishes or laundry, or flush the toilet more than twice, we will have a geyser of unclean water in the bathroom or kitchen. Yes, really lovely. He's sending someone else out first thing in the morning with a camera attached to a snake-y thing... that should tell us (hopefully) that it's the city's issue. Until that point... it'll be the shower at the gym and the neighbor's toilets. I left a big sign on the bathroom door, printed in red Sharpie, to let Ryan know NOT TO FLUSH THE TOILET. Lovely.
Yesterday I woke up to a completely destroyed front tire. Dunno how it happened exactly. And yes, it was one of my new tires... one of the 'high performance' (my ass) tires, each of which costs more than my first car (my ex picked this car and these tires... not me). Lovely.
On a positive note, I'm at 42% of my $2,300 goal for the breast cancer walk after only 3 days!! Three days!!! Thank you to everyone who has donated so far... every penny is so appreciated!! Again, I do hope you'll all pass my Pink Page blog and/or donation page information on to anyone you know who might be inclined to donate. We're well on our way. And that is lovely!
On another positive note, my brother and sister-in-law seem to have forgiven me for the awful things I didn't do. Though neither has acknowledged the letter I sent, they seem to be speaking to me again and my brother is even (voluntarily) taking care of my tire issues (I'd never ask). I'm just going to let it all drop. I know an apology is just way too much to expect or hope for and that's fine. It's not why I wrote the letter anyway (though it would have been nice). At least if we're talking, it makes things easier for the whole family. And that's lovely, too.
So, two crappy things and two nice things happened this weekend. I guess that makes it a wash, huh? And I just remembered that all the clean clothes I washed earlier today need to be re-washed, as they were folded on the table right under the unclean waterfall. Lovely.
Hope your weekend was really lovely, too... and I don't mean that in a sarcastic way. Really.
