The bad

  • Our hot water heater broke while we were on vacation
  • Our credit card bill as a result of both these hitting at once is going to be very painful
  • While HMC may provide excellent trauma care, they cause me mental trauma & have for 7 years as a part of my job

The good

  • The heater didn't result in a flood requiring insurance involvement, just damp areas fans & a rental dehumidifier will fix
  • The pipes didn't break again
  • We had a wonderful time in Victoria, the Saanich peninsula and Cowichan valley
  • Despite eating colossal amounts of rich breakfasts, I lost weight & inches
  • I got a 4.0 last quarter after all
  • All fires at work are manageable

More later, I can't say I'm all that glad to be home. I'm starting to get that feeling of 'why am I leaving here?' every time we leave Victoria that I used to have when I went back to California from Seattle. This is the first time we went off the city tourist path & I've fallen even more in love with the area and people.

I don't think it's a good sign when national chain plumbers have to run to Home Despot for additional plumbing supplies & cement blocks after the arrival of our new hot water heater from Auburn(?!) We do have an oddly limited space for the thing & it is short 7-8" from where the exhaust hole is cut into the side of our house. I have nasty visions of what will happen in an earthquake.

The job started at noon and they don't think they'll be done until well past 5. No water + no gas = takeout tonight.

And beer. Lots of beer. In heaven there is no beer. That's why we drink it here.
