Coping skills

You know it's going to be a hum-dinger of a day when you absolutely MUST have chocolate and it's only 10:00 in the morning.

And the reason you need that chocolate is because your dishwasher won't turn on and wash the hugely full load of dishes inside.

So you decide to take all the dishes out and wash them by hand and realize you hear water running somewhere.

So you go look for the running water and find the water heater is leaking! So you find the water shut off valve and stop the constant running, all the while wondering how long it was doing that and how big your water bill is going to be.

So you walk back to the kitchen to do your dishes only to find that, of course, there is no more hot water because you shut it off!!!!

And you realize you are NOT going to make it to swimming lessons because the repair man is coming for the water heater, and you are NOT going to exercise today because you will be cleaning up water-heater mess, and you are NOT going to shower because there is no hot water anymore.

So you start foraging for chocolate.

Yep, it's going to be one of those days.
