Day 31 - Stress - the final frontier
Monday, December 14, 2009
Last night before bed, I went down to move the wash into the dryer. Alas, there was water spewing out from under the washer. Aaargh! So I got to bed late and slept poorly.
This would not be a good time to buy a new washer. I'm getting replacement windows and door and some masonry done and I need the electrician to come out and fix a few things.
So I stressed over it pretty much all day today. I've been in the house 12 years and the washer was here when I moved in so I don't know how old it is. Do I bet $100 on bringing someone in to look at it? If it is a hose or maybe even a gasket, that might do the trick. If not, it's money I don't have down the drain (pun intended) and I'll need to get a new one.
I finally called the plumber this evening. Hopefully he'll get back to me tomorrow. Hopefully it's a hose that can be replaced.
I am very proud of myself. I did pretty good eating wise and exercise wise and kept on track even though I was stressed and tired.
