How Much Of A Mess Does It Make When Your Head Explodes?

I think I'm going to find out very soon!

Last Tuesday my washer broke. It not longer spins and so it is useless.  The maintenance man came the following day and looked it over. After an hour or so he decided that it was broke and needed to be replaced. Okay, great! A new washer!  Yeah, well then he tells me that it will take a week for the new washer to show up. GRRRRRRRRRRR

Hi there, it's the following Tuesday, yay! Okay, I really need to do some laundry so I call the office to find out the status of my new washer. Well, it does take 5-9 business days so hopefully it will be here by the end of the week.  They'll be sure and call me and let me know when it's here.

I can feel my blood pressure building and am sure that the top of my head is going to shoot right off my body. I f'ing hate having to depend on other people to get shit done!  So I guess I'll be joining the scummy masses at the laundry mat this evening!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, and by the way, I tried to use my drier and it seems to be only blowing cold air. Hmm, I'm going to put in a maintenance request for that in a minute here. I'll guessing that will be fixed by the spring.  Thanks a lot Horizons at Rock Creek!

Now I'm going to take some deep breaths, try to calm down, and get on with my day.

The Weekend

Well, as it turns out I did do some fun stuff this weekend. I started out Saturday doing some running around with Ed. Then we decided to drive up into the mountains a little way to check out our closest ski area, Eldora.  It's not as big as many of the other ski areas around, but it was satisfactory to Ed as he hasn't skied since his knee surgery in Sept. 2009.  I also found it satisfactory, it has a couple of lovely little beginner hills that were gently sloping enough that I probably wouldn't break my neck on.  So, as long as we don't have other stuff to do, we will probably head back next weekend and actually ski.

Then Saturday night I went out for girl's night with my friend Carrie from work and her group of friends.  This is the second month I've gone with them and it was really nice.  They usually pick a place and everyone meets for dinner and sometimes a movie afterward. This past Saturday we went to a place called Wildflowers Tea Room. It was so cute!  It served English, Irish, Scottish, etc. food.  It's not someplace I will go back to frequently, but I will definitely go back.

I hate it when I can't think of anything interesting to write! 

Oh well, it's Friday so maybe I'll do something fun over the weekend and then come back and tell you all about it. =)
