"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

let there be light...or rather hot water!

Ah, the comforts of home.

I managed to unpack several boxes and even made a path through the dining room to the front door. Don’t laugh, this is progress. I’m finally feeling like this is home. I even cooked dinner in the new kitchen. Yes, I know I won the bet…I didn’t have to cook…I wanted to. And it was a pretty good meal if I do say so myself. I made a trip to the Amish food store today and stocked up on cheeses, spices, and garden fresh veggies. Everyone enjoyed it. Especially after the other good news of the day.

Joy of all joys…we have hot water!

Yes, it’s true. The electrician showed up just before the dinner hour to fix my malfunctioning hot water heater. As it turns out, faulty wiring was the culprit, and lucky for us, the electrician got here when he did…saving us from a potential fire.

So after cooking dinner, the first order of business was to take a shower.

Of course, I was beaten to it by the thirteen year old step-daughter…who used every drop of the hot water in the tank, by the way. Oh, not to worry, I’ll get my revenge…later. She has to sleep sometime.

And speaking of sleep. I need some. It’s been a long week.

Until the next time…I’ll be working on a special Daywalkers bonus for Easter.
