Now, as I learned yesterday, it's the thermocouple that is like the safety valve on the water heater. It's what keeps the gas from escaping when the pilot goes out. So no big deal right? Just run down to the local hardwear store and get a new one, right? Nope. I have a left handed thermocouple. (no idea what that means). And I guess they're pretty rare. So they had to overnight one from the east coast. It's supposed to be in sometime today. So last night, after an intense day of year end financial crap at work (that has to be turned in by today), I went home, took the girls for a walk, and headed up to Kens to take a shower.
He was sweet enough to make fajitas for dinner, knowing how exhausted and frustrated I was.
I know it's not THAT traumatic, but it just totally threw off my whole day. I mean, thank goodness I had taken a bath the night before or i'd really have had a bad day.
So i'm sitting here in the office, killing time, waiting for the part to come in so I can rush home, let them in to fix the water heater, and then a lllooong hot shower. Maybe after that I can focus and get some work done today.
