No need to fret any longer. The hot water is back. My husband, with the help of the neighbor, was able to remove the old water heater and put in the new one. There were a few issues, as there always are with such jobs but all in all it wasn't bad. So we saved the money on hiring a plumber for the installation. We got our rebate from Uncle Sam today which paid for the water heater. Yea!
Bear had his 15 month checkup yesterday and all is well. He is perfect and healthy which I already knew. I had a hair appointment today and she cut Bear's too but I forgot to snap a picture. I'll try to remember to do that tomorrow. It has just been hectic the past few days. I had lunch with my Tuesday group today. I felt bad since only one other lady brought her kid and he was much older but Bear did pretty well. Then the hair appointment was right after so he was a little wild by the end. And of course his diaper leaked at the end of the hair appointment and soaked through my jeans while I was trying to hold him for his cut.
The days have been flying by. I have plans tomorrow night and the next. I was invited out tonight but declined. I stayed home and cooked dinner, re-potted my herbs I have been growing, and helped my husband clean up the garage from the carnage of the water heater install. What can I say? I lead a wild and crazy life. Its weird how people find out you are staying home and start coming out of the woodwork wanting playdates or just to hang out. Its pretty cool though. My laundry still needs to be folded and I am 143 posts behind in my Google Reader but I am really enjoying staying home so far.
