my! SOMEONE was quite the crankypants yesterday, wasn't she? i am pleased to report - for both your sake and mine - that i am in a vastly improved mood today. many irritants have been removed from my life:
a) hot water! it is back! i called a hot water heater repair company, they came over within about 2 hours, and fixed the heater about 20 minutes after that. and my landlord paid for it directly so it wasn't even any money out of pocket for me.
b) turns out the heater thingy is also tied into my REAL heat, and that's why it was so effing cold. last night was a VAST improvement. i had been waking up at night because one arm would snake its way out of my covers while i was asleep, and it would be so painfully cold that i would WAKE UP. (we once had a tree fall on our house and completely splinter our deck. my mom thought we were bombed; i did not wake up. so this should let you know just how cold my arm was.) but this morning? i woke up and BOTH my bare arms were outside my covers! and i was ok! heat: it's, like, totally awesome!
c) there was this work thing, which i won't get into, but let me assure you: definitely impacting the CrankyPants mood around here. i believe one of my coworkers may have told me i was acting like a teenager due to all the misplaced angst. however! situation: resolved; crankypants level: diffused.
d) i sent match boy (hmm, we need a better name for him... let's go with... Eagles Fan. yeah?) a quick email yesterday, and he called back again last night. we have another date for sunday :-)
now i just need to get a handle on my xmas shopping, and i'll be freaking ecstatic. i have a Shopping Trip Of Doom set up with my highschool bff on saturday (read: we're braving a mall) and hopefully i'll knock off the majority of stuff while i'm there. i just have to, uh, come up with ideas for everyone before then. fingers crossed.
