I started my dishwasher last evening and water backed up into my kitchen sink. I tried to plunge it but that accomplished nothing at all. So I called a plumber. He hopes to come this morning but if not, he will come at 1:00. Bob said he would come over and let him in. Or I can stay home and make up my time at work tomorrow afternoon. It's always something it seems. My house and car insurance come due next week and I also have to have my car seat belts repaired when the part comes in next week.
Yesterday at work I spent the entire day moving files from one case to another. I moved eight floor to ceiling cases full of files. I still have two to go. I came home utterly exhausted. I couldn't stay awake for the PBS show on volcanoes. I took my bath and went to bed as soon as Bob left.
This morning the water is still standing in the sink and the dishwasher is full of dirty dishes. I have had a cup of warmed over coffee and read my e-mail and online County Chronicle newspaper. There's no sense fretting about the expense of living. Nothing changes that. It beats the expense of dying.
I have had a sore right forearm for a couple of months. I don't know what causes it but I don't intend to go to the doctor over it because it appears to be in the forearm muscle and I imagine it's my age and the work I do. I can only work for three more years at this government job training job. Before then, I will have to sell my house and move into rental property. Taxes and insurances and house repairs are eating up my savings.
My daughter just called me and suggested that I go ahead and put my house on the market. She says if it sells before I can find a duplex, I can put my furniture in storage and move into their extra bedroom until I can find a duplex I want with either a garage or a carport. I guess it's time alright. If it doesn't sell right away I have lost nothing. If it does sell, I will have the equity from the house to supplement my income and I can give up the job. I will check with a realtor after the plumber comes.
The plumber came and after some problems, got my sink unstopped. I will be billed later. The realtor I wanted is not in this morning. So that didn't work out.
