water water everywher

water, part 1: a leak in the car. AGAIN. 2 weeks ago there was another leak in my car. don't even get me started about the service call and the discussions with the service writer at the dealer. bbfe totally summed it up for me when he said "what the f&*% do you care about what he thinks....he's only a service writer for god's sake." enough said. but i'm still frustrated over the whole entire thing.

water, part 2: the day after the car leak, bbfe notices that we have a puddle of water in the garage. we track it back to the water heaters and have determined that one is leaking. since we have 2 water heaters, it's not a big deal or emergency. our hot water helps heat the house and since it's spring and we don't need to run heat, we just unplugged it. however finding a plumber and/or hvac business that services this kind of system was the biggest pain the butt. finally found someone and scheduled an appointment. of course, since it's a water related issue clearly it didn't go off without a hitch. the guy called at the scheduled time thinking it was a consultation, hung up quickly stating he'd call back and then never did. i call the front office and the guy was out here within the next 45 minutes and inspected the issue. i'm now replacing a hot water heater.

water, part 3: it's been raining entirely too much for my taste.

is it a sign: my zodiac sign is a fire sign. i'm guessing that the water is a sign that i need to temper the fire within me.

mother's day: last week bbfe and i were discussing mother's day and i teased that i'm a mom to einstein and as the father, he was responsible for taking care of the day on behalf of the pup. i was totally joking and he knows it. i mean really, he compared our family to three's company when trying to explain that our relationship with ein is platonic. but if the dog licks my feet like crazy, i totally debate the platonic nature of our relationship! i totally wasn't counting on anything, but my day was pleasantly started when bbfe kissed me good-bye and wished me a happy mother's day before leaving. and boy was i shocked when bbfe came home, announced that he had picked up the makings for dinner, grilled dinner and even cleaned up after. what more could a girl ask for?
