let the healing begin

My house has been suffering with broken appliances in apparent sympathy to my broken wrist. Finally, now, some things are starting to be fixed. The water heater took three visits from three different repair men and about a week, but is now replaced and the new one is working fine. The dishwasher also took three people and nearly a month to fix. The first guy blamed it on one part, ordered the part and then after waiting about 10 days determined that the part was not available and the whole machine would have to be replaced. Before that happened a second guy came out and said the problem was a different part. Before that part came in a third guy came out, today, diagnosed yet a third part as the problem, pulled a replacement off the truck and now the machine is working fine.

Meanwhile our sprinkler system has been failing, first in the front yard and later in the back yard as well for the last week or so. I've been trying to cut down on watering but I don't want to kill every plant on the property. I was able yesterday to get the sprinkler system back on line for the back yard but I'll have to get the gardener to figure out why the controls aren't working for the front yard.

And then, of course, there's my wrist. Very slow, very slight improvement. The bandages (sterile strips I think they're called) have started coming off in the shower revealing a very tough looking scar.

RR - catching up on your blog and so sorry about your accident. I do need to tell you that I LOVE THE FACIAL HAIR, however.

Hope to see you at next year's GA.
