Frustrating Day

My morning started off pretty good. My husband and I got up and prepared to head out for the hour and a half trip to see my Rheumatologist but we were quickly halted when my husband found that our water heater had been leaking. Thankfully he seen it before we had a complete mess on our hands. The drain pan was almost to the rim full of water. It would not have made it another week until he got back so, after a few calls, he got in touch with a plumber that could replace it TODAY! WooHoo, thank ya Lord! So we gather what info we need from the old one in order to buy a new one.

We finish getting ready to go and head out.

Next stop, Dr office.

That appointment was also a frustrating ordeal. First my husband wasn’t allowed to even go inside with me, due to this covid19 crap, then the lab tech chased a vein in my right arm for a good five minutes before deciding to try my left arm for a good vein. Of course she got it the first stick only for something goofy to happen and her wind up having to chase that vein too for some reason. BUT she was finally able to get her three tubes of blood from that arm so that’s good. The tech was very nice and apologetic during it all, which I greatly appreciated, so that was helpful in keeping my frustration at a minimal. I even told her it was fine, no need to apologize because it just happens that way some times and she appreciated my understanding.

Next stop is Lowe’s for our brand new water heater. So thankful that we had the means necessary in order to purchase a new one but this too took longer than expected. The gentleman that helped us was very nice and LOVED to chit chat. After finally getting what we needed the nice gentleman even helped my husband get it outside and into the back of our pick up.

So, off we go for our journey back home because the plumber we were able to get in touch with will have his “hands” to meet us there. Once the two gentlemen got the tank drained and outside, they began the install of the new one. BUT, you guessed it, they have some unexpected issues with the install and it is now going to take way longer than expected to complete the job.

Thankfully, once they are complete and outta here, all is well once again.

UNTIL it isn’t.

As I began to clean up the mess, not a big one, left behind from the job that has taken several hours to complete, I find that the new water heater is now leaking. I call the plumber and after a few “discussions” on a few different calls, we both agree that it’ll be fine to wait til morning for them to come back and see what’s happening now.

So my husband is back where he needs to be for work and I am off to bed to begin my morning in the morning, once more, with the water heater situation.

Moral of this story you may ask……..I just felt like sharing part of my very frustrating day with y’all and also to share that SATAN DID NOT WIN TODAY!!

I’m now off to lay my frustrations down at the feet of Jesus and have a great night of peaceful rest in spite of my frustrating day.

Hopefully y’all can do the same and have a good night!

I am a Christian, wife, and an empty nesting entrepreneur. My husband and I, of 24 years, this year, have two adult children; one daughter and one son with our daughter being the oldest. Both of our babies are married now and living the Air Force life with their new "immediate" family. My Son and Son-in-love are both active duty members so we are all thousands of miles apart. We just recently became "Tootsie and Pops" to our very first Grand child! Our wonderful Son and Daughter-in-love had their first born in March. We both long for the day when they get to live close enough to us for us to spoil our Grand Son rotten! I have more time on my hands than I'm used to having so I've decided to take on a couple of adventures of my own. I am now a Young Living Distributor as well as a Pampered Chef Independent Consultant. If you'd like to come along with me in either one of these adventures, please click on the web site link below to join my team and/or simply place an order for either product. I love them both so much! Young Living has their own "Vitality" line of oils that's used for cooking with so that allows me to incorporate both businesses together and I'm looking forward to helping others with either or both products. I'm very reachable, should you have any questions, so don't hesitate to hit me up about either or both businesses. Thank you in advance for all orders and/or comments. Please share my sites with your loved ones, friends, co-workers, any one that you feel might be of interest.
