The Joy’s of home ownership…..
So our main sewer line has been backing up when we flush the toilet…had a plumber out today and discovered that our pipe is broken. So they’re going to have to come out, dig up the basement and replace the pipe. This is on top of the fact that our roof needs replaced…luckily insurance is covering that because it was damaged due to storms…but man when it rains it pours…no pun intended. I’m just hoping that after we get all this taken care of we get a reprieve for a while and nothing else goes wrong…because this stuff isn’t cheap.
In other news Kenzie started his new job today. I hope it goes well for him, this is his first full time 40 hour a week job and he was a bit nervous about it. But I’m sure he’s going to be fine.
So I work from home, and today one of my Work monitors started showing signs of dying, with dead pixels. When I first got sent home to work they just had me bring home my whole work station that I was using the office….so far the computer itself and my phone have both had to be replaced. I’m wonder why they didn’t just give me a new set to begin with to avoid this whole thing?!?!? Anyway so now I have to go down to the office and take my dying monitor to swap it for a good one….sometimes things make no sense….
So I’ve been doing acupuncture and While I always feel great directly afterwards, I’m not sure that it’s having any major affect on me. But it has only been like 4 sessions so far and maybe it just takes time. I’ve never been a patient person. I really just want to be able to live my life without back pain. I’m so tired of dealing with it all the time. I want to be able to do things like walk through a store.
I’m already planning My Thanksgiving dinner. This year we’re actually doing it the day after Thanksgiving because we both have to work the day before and we need a day to prep, so we settled on having dinner on the 25th. I’m going full traditional for the Thanksgiving…Turkey and all the usual sides. However I think we’re going to do something completely different for Christmas. We may do something Mexican, We haven’t quite decided yet.
I’m so sleepy today….life has been hectic lately. Between physical therapy and acupuncture I’ve been doing a lot lately. Hopefully though I will have less pain in the end. I really would like to be in better physical condition. I hate feeling like I can’t walk anywhere or do anything. I mean I have a mobility scooter and that helps but also it can be a real pain. Navigating with it isn’t the easiest and there is still so much I can’t do that I would like to do. For example, we went to Gatlinburg and there were things I couldn’t do like go into certain stores because there just wasn’t enough room for the scooter. I want to be normal again and be able to walk places and not feel like an old woman….
