After not sleeping very well last night because of coughing (that cough syrup just didn't seem to kick it for me), I got up and decided to try and go to work again. Yesterday I lasted the whole morning and a couple hours into the afternoon before I went home. I'm hoping today I make it through the whole day.
My morning routine consists of getting in the shower first thing, which I did today. A little bit later I needed to use the water in the kitchen and noticed it was not coming out of the faucet very fast at all. I went in the basement and looked around to see if there were any puddles of water. Thankfully, there were not. Then I walked out to the front yard and sure enough, up through the ground the water was just a bubbling like crazy. Sigh.
I called the city and they sent someone out. They will work on it this morning and get it fixed. Another good thing, the break occurred in a spot that the city is responsible for, not us as homeowners. So, a little inconvenience for a few days (boiling drinking water) is a small price to pay. I do feel for those guys who have to work outside in this cold weather, especially with water and all.
I'm trying to decide what to do as a sewing project for the year. I'm thinking something every day, like a small block, might be the route I go. Maybe set a goal of getting certain things accomplished each week, even. All I know, is that right now I'm not doing anything at home except sleeping. Oh, and eating. This cold did not diminish my appetite yet!
