Where yesterday I maintained my positive mood so well, today was rough from the start. Waking to my, recently occurring, issue with my chihuahua having pooped in my room while we slept, which I cleaned and took her poop to the toilet only to find that my water is off. My inexperience with dealing with issues of the sort and stress from money and car issues we’ve been having as of late, it didn’t even occur to me to think maybe workers turned off the water because they were working near it or whatever. No I begin to freak the fuck out thinking there’s another problem, another thing going wrong.
I’m half screaming, half crying, gave Aidan his morning bottle and went down stairs trying to look at what I could see. Attempted to call Alex multiple times and as luck would have it my mom ended up calling not too long after because they were going to kings island and wanted to see if they could take Aidan. On the phone I actually started to lose my shit, I was so overwhelmed I couldn’t handle even explaining what was wrong without starting to cry or scream. She said they were already heading our way, Ryan would look when he got here. Irony struck and Alex called not minutes after my mom and I got off the phone and I explained the situation while again, losing my shit. He tells me to calm down or I’m going to start hyperventilating.
Seriously though, when will men learn to not tell women to calm down?
He asked if someone was working down the street and after looking for a minute I did find a door tag folded and shoved into the handle of my screen door… Instead of opening the screen door and hanging it where it goes or knocking, it was folded and shoved into the handle of my screen door… Why? Then I started screaming about them not knocking to get our attention or something. I mean, seriously, I have a baby in here. Thankfully we had enough water down for the dogs too or I probably would’ve been more pissed.
Alex came home for his break to look at the ac, because it actually was leaking. Figured that out and I ended up going with mom for the day. Really made me realize how out of shape I am when feeling how exhausted I was after spending all day at kings island.
Thankfully the water was back on when we got back, but after hearing a continuous stream of water while going to the bathroom we found out a pvc or pbc, or whatever it is, pipe connecting the main spicket outside to our other spickets on different spots of the deck was spraying out water. Sweet, not only did that bust, but we’ve had water spraying out for god knows how many hours they’ve had the water back on… GREAT for our water bill, GREAT end to the day.
How do you remain positive when it’s one thing after another, life just keeps kicking you while you’re down? I know it’s simple things, I know things will work out, but in the moment I’m just ready to give up.
