It's been a busy couple of day. I've been working a LOT with no day off in sight. Friday morning, while getting ready for work, I went downstairs to get some clothes and saw that the carpet was soaked! All I could think of was that the sewer had backed up. That was happening every couple of years until we found the source, so hadn't happened in a while. I was expecting the worst. When I went downstairs all of the way, the water seemed to be coming from the opposite end of the basement that the sewer was on. Maybe it was a burst pipe? Nothing was leaking from overhead and I could not figure out where all this water had come from.
I ran upstairs to tell Kevin. He thought I was joking for a minute. After I told him I was definitely NOT joking, he came down with me. He figured out that the water heater must have rusted out of the bottom and leaked out everywhere.
I didn't know what to do. I asked Kevin if I should call in to work, but he said I should just go and he would clean up and take care of it.
By the time I got home from work he had bought a new water heater, but had to wait until Saturday to put it in so his dad and brother could help him. It was $350 plus more for new hoses and or pipes to connect it. Ugh.
We had to turn the water completely off, because there was a leak in the shut off valve. You never realize how much you use water until it's gone. Simple things like washing my hands, rinsing a dish, etc. I had bought two gallon jugs of water and a pack of water in bottles.
This morning I had my long run with Becky. I had 7 on the schedule, she had 9. We ended up with 8.3, but that was due to a mapping error. It was a tough run! The first mile and a half was physically painful. My legs were sore, I woke up with a headache, my ankles and calves felt really tight, blah, blah, blah. After that, I started to feel a bit better.

My watch also died before we even hit mile one. At least Becky had hers. It was funny though, because when hers would beep for the miles I would hit the lap button on my watch and when we would stop at lights I would hit the stop button. Old habits die hard, I guess!
I'm home from work now after a long night. I'm going to watch Comedy.TV and go to bed. And I plan on sleeping late tomorrow since I don't have to work until 1:30.
Have a great rest of the weekend!
