Hi I really miss spending more time on here but it feels likes its been more and more hectic - like last week I was having trouble with the washing machine NOT draining (it goes into the floor drain in the basement and started backing up) I managed to try to unblock it (and managed to mangle my hand in the process as the drain is about a foot under the floor and it goes right into a trap - there should be MORE room to negotiate a snake into the stupid thing but I keep thinking whover poured the floor was slovenly. Therefore it ends up being like inserting your hand into an inside-out bacteria infested cheese grater (don't forget it is a SEWER). A couple of days later after feeling sort of sorry for myself and my ineptitude as a "handyman" I happened to be down there looking at the water level in the drain and happened to notice it move UP and DOWN several inches. I happened to ask my wife a couple of minutes later as she came downstairs (I thought perhaps she had had a shower but she had just flushed the toilet). I started to suspect that perhaps there was more to the story, Later on that evening the sewer proper back up (not a lot but enough to announce its PRESENCE) . I went and called the city and they came out the next day as there were calls ahead of us (thankfully the fire dept doesn't operate in a similar fashion). Anyhow they put a camera down (after BREAKING my plug to my cleanout) and determined the blockage was 30.5 m out (roughly 100') so it was determined the the blockage was on the city property, They ran a snake down and unblocked it (apparently they had to connect 5 sections together). Not to mention I guess that save me having to rent one and do it myself (I have done that NOT a pleasant job). Needless to say I am glad that was taken off of my shoulders. I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Thanks for the support. I am feeling somewhat better. (I better be the antibiotics are GONE) emoticon . Even though I thought I had a good handle on things I still woke up upset a few times this week (I think I was dreaming about Sam) I also had a couple of dreams about a place I used to work for (that basically is a shadow of its former self). I get the unenviable pleasure of moving ,y mother in law this weekend (I think she is NOT looking forward to leaving her home).

Busy today and its cold out spent all afternoon in and out at work (my hands split open from the cold- its not as bad as it sounds). At least I seem to have shaken off that bug (for now).

Woke up this morning with the sore throat back again and a still neck. I feel a bit better now but just sort of dogged it all day as I only slept for about 4 hours the night before (NO idea why), All I know is I can't wait to feel better so I can start to exercise again.

You know I was having a "relatively" good day at work and a great evening and then i realised how MUCH I miss HOUSE (the TV show) I know its sounds stupid but all through High School I wanted to take medicine (the schooling NOT the pharmaceutical). Too bad you only get ONE shot at this life thing.

    I never knew what I wanted to be and that's how I ended up a nurse.
