The new water heater and the new water softener have been hooked up and appear to be operating properly. Due to a couple of really bizarre problems with the water heater, BF negotiated a significant discount on that purchase, which eased the financial impact, but the total remained extremely painful.
Needless to say, I did not sleep well last night. I got in some substantial reading time that helped me fall asleep at a decent hour, but slight noises woke me well before 3:00 a.m. I read, I journaled, I let the dogs out, but I couldn't get back to sleep, so finally got up a little before 7:00 to run a bunch of errands.
It's all little stuff. Pay some bills, buy a few groceries and dog food. Pick up stuff at the hardware store to repair a leaky toilet and some other minor household things. But it ate up one hour, two hours, three hours, four hours.

However, I received information about a potential new art show in the fall, a show that could almost have been designed with me in mind. So I got my application in right away. No guarantee that I'll get in, but at least I tried.
I have to find a way to get rid of these damn rocks!!!!
