I'm scheduled to get a new water heater tomorrow. I like this new maintenance guy my apartment complex has hired - he actually spent more than a few seconds looking at the water heater, and he confirmed something I suspected, that my water heater has probably been having issues for some time. (But no one listens to the female tenant who complains of weirdly inconsistent morning showers.)


I'm tired, but happy that this early AM horror is working out for the better. Now it's time to try to finish a review or two, while enjoying tea from my cute new (and first!) tea pot. It's not necessarily the design I'd have chosen out of all the tea pots in existence, but it was my favorite of the designs available at a local business that just opened up, and it holds enough tea for two cups. :-)
