I had a puddle in my hallway carpeting today (Monday). My first thought was that one of the girls had spilled something. No such luck. We soaked up what we could with a towel, and it was sopping again an hour later. As it turned out, we had an intake pipe leaking at the water heater. I drove into town and bought my supplies. I could have called the owner of the building, but I'd rather not, if I can avoid it. Pooh's girlfriend was over this afternoon, and as she watched me fix it, she said, "You really CAN do anything, can't you?" *big smile* Yes, as a matter of fact, I can. The leak is sealed, the carpet is drying and the tubs of dessicant are tucked into the corners to help speed along the recovery.
I had a talk on the phone with my new boss today. I was doing updates on the Web site contact pages, uploading the daily content and trying to monitor conditions in the hallway at the time. He set me to some more tasks, so my work day went longer than usual. And it seems that he might not be my boss for very long. He let me in that some of the key players were meeting this afternoon, and I might go back to reporting to my old boss - my editor from when I was a reporter. My job isn't changing. I could be okay with that. He knows nothing about what I do on the Web sites, but I've worked with him long enough that he knows I can do anything that's asked of me, and he doesn't have to worry about me.
I'm keeping it short, tonight. I couldn't sleep at all last night, and today's adventures (mainly my hours on my hands and knees with the green machine sucking the water out of the carpet) have left me pretty drained. Bedtime for me.
