Who Knew

I have a horrible bathtub. I have ever since I moved here. Every time I take a shower I end up ankle deep in water. I hate that. I've poured drain cleaner down the drain multiple times. I spent one whole day pouring scalding hot water down the drain. All to no effect.

This morning I hopped in the tub and while I was taking a shower, the little joystick that controls the tub drain caught my attention. It was sticking straight out and even up a little. I thought that didn't look right. I grabbed the joystick and pushed down - and voila, the tub drained rather fast. No more ankle deep water while showering. I feel like I should sit in the corner with a dunce cap on!

I've been having some trouble with the Schwan's people. Last Wednesday I placed an order for delivery. They told me it would be delivered Friday. So I hung around all day and finally about 7 p.m. I called them and asked when he was going to arrive. I was told it would be Tuesday (today). I was more than a little ticked off. And I told them so - by repeatedly slamming the phone down on my desk and then hanging up. Over the top, I know - but I was having a bad day and that just hit me the wrong way. I finally told them I didn't care if he showed up or not - I had errands to run. And I ran them.

I hit the post office drive through to send out last of the month bills. I went over to the doctor's office for my vitamin B12 shot. Guess what - there's a national shortage of vitamin B12. I'm taking the pill form now. I like that better. Then it was off to Walmart. I haven't been there to do shopping in quite a while and it took quite a bit of time to make it around and just get some basics. I made it home and flopped down in the chair after getting all the groceries away to have the Schwan's man pull in the driveway. I almost told him that I didn't want it, but I really like their ice cream. I took the order and told him if I wanted another I would let him know. He didn't know about all the trouble I was having and he said that he is only in town every other Tuesday. Good to know. But I'm still really pissed off at the company.

The best news ever is that Keith Olberman is back on television. It made my night last night and tonight to hear that theme song, knowing that I'd get a good dose of unvarnished news.

I'm working on the camera situation so that I can get back to frogs - feel free to donate towards a new camera - it will be greatly appreciated.
