It has been a horrible Monday!
Actually, today started out just fine. I got the kids back to school after their spring break. I had a great workout, ran a bunch of errands, and got all caught up on my emails. Then, I found a wet spot in my hallway carpet. Then, the wet spot began to grow. Then, I opened the closet door next to the hallway and found a wet mess puddling under the hot water heater. I immediately called our landlords and they hit the road running to get someone here to fix it. The good news is that I am sitting on the couch this evening with my feet up, trying to relax from an exhausting day. My house is a mess from all those closet items I had to remove, BUT the hot water heater has been replaced and I have someone coming by in the morning to clean up the carpet mess. Tonight, I am so thankful for amazing landlords that responded so quickly!
In other news, I am still reading Allegiant by Veronica Roth. I really do expect to finish it tonight or tomorrow. I am really curious to chat with others about this one once I do finish. As promised in previous weeks, the books that will be up next are Chew, Volume 1 by John Layman and Enchanted Glass by Diana Wynne Jones.
It's Bloggiesta time!! On Wednesday, I will be hosting a challenge for the event, then on Thursday through Sunday, I will be working on my HUGE long list of tasks! I have been compiling this list since the end of the last Bloggiesta and with Armchair BEA coming up, it has gotten a little out of hand. I am really looking forward to crossing off so many of these items this week.
