    The Cold Hard Truth

    Well, today is gonna suck. Big time. For a few reasons.

    You see, a few days ago, I noticed that I had pretty limited hot water when I was taking a shower. And by limited I mean it only lasted 20 minutes instead of 30 minutes at boiling hot temperatures. I mentioned this to Sugar Daddy, who promptly fixed it. Well, Tuesday comes around, and suddenly, right there mid-lather, None. And when it's 6 degrees outside, that water is freaking cold. I rinse, all the while my nipples are etching the glass doors (TMI? Yeah, but it's funny, huh?) , and I head to the basement to check it out. Uh oh. There is a flashing code on the thermostat. Uh oh. I don't know my water heaters, but I know this isn't good.

    So for 2 days now, I've been making do with limited (at best) warm water. The kids are getting a little funky, and I'm not one of those that can go more than a day without a shower. Hopefully our water heater is still under warranty, because I already spent our cruise money on my dog's uterus, and I don't have much Christmas money left to spare. I mean, I may be okay with getting 2 generators for my birthday, but a water heater for Christmas is just over the line.

    Also, I ate 5 Hershey's Nuggets for breakfast. Hey, they had almonds in them. Healthy, no?

    I'm reading sTori Telling by Tori Spelling, which has a very clever title, don't you think? It's a very easy read about her life growing up. Wow, it's "hard to have sympathy for a girl that wants a certain car for her 16th birthday, and her parents buy her a newer, more expensive car instead". It's not a bad read, just kind of "blah blah blah, I'm so picked on, blah blah blah". But then I find out she has issues with certain lifestyles, and now I have no desire to finish her book. I just hate the thought of supporting someone that is so narrow minded. So we'll see.

    And finally, remember when I tried to give up Diet Pepsi? I've done it! I'm totally off the diet. But now I'm on full strength. Yep, I've crossed back over, Jill. I'm sure my mom is cursing me right now, since she was kind of the proponent of Diet that I needed. But I just like me some sugar first thing in the morning, know what I'm sayin'?

    So that's pretty much it. I'm heading to neighbor Kate's for a shower, and then it's off to dance, unless water heater fixer dude can make it over this morning. Then dance will have to wait.

    Wish me luck!

    That would suck not having any hot water in 6 degree weather. I feel for you. I have experienced that several times by living in Louisville, here and believe it or not Logan. It was so cold in our Logan townhouse that our fish and its water froze. No joke. It was quite funny. Good luck, I hope the water heater guy comes today.

    aw crud. I have always been interested in the never run out of hot water water heaters. Those little boxes instead of the big barrel thing.
    ok, I liked the sTori Telling. I wasn't as offended as you are I guess. But I find that funny that you were offended as I remember your 'not all Mormons are against gay marriage' FB status

    I am checking your shower for etched glass next time I am there.

    Was the etching at least a design of some sort? I remember living in Burbank and our hot water shut off over the weekend. We had to bathe the kids and shower ourselves with water we would warm up in a bowl in a microwave and then run it to the bathroom and pour over us. sucked butt! Big time! I guess it makes us thankful for hot water, eh?

    Tankless water heaters are the way to go - expensive at first - but worth every penny.

    I do sympathize with you though!

    Oh, no hot water is the worst!

    At least you have really nice neighbors!
