What happened to the hot water?

What happened to the hot water?

So I am still learning the lessons of being a divorced homeowner. Well, I couldn’t understand why the water wasn’t getting hot. So my mother asked me how old was my hot water heater? I said I don’t know, we’ve been there 10 years and it’s the same one. She said it’s probably broken. So a trip to SEARS and $1100 dollars later, the hot water is returning. So I asked the SEARS rep, when will it be installed.

SEARS rep: Well, I don’t know when it will be installed, but it will be soon

Me: How soon is soon?

Rep: We don’t know, but it is in stock.

Me: I am spending $1100 and that’s the only answer I can get?

Rep: Well, I am sure it won’t be long, but if you haven’t heard anything in 2 days, call them.

Me: 2 days? Ummmm, I am gonna call them tomorrow. I need my hot water working.

I know some things are out of their control, but I feel they should at least know something. I mean I paid for it today, not 2 days from now. Oh well, just another day in my life. YAY me!

Oh and I had to ask the wasband to give our new puppy his shots. He said I am not a veterinarian. I said I know, but you did the others, so can you. He said I guess. So he says, you aren’t wearing your lil skirt today…..ummmmmmm it’s 10 degrees outside, why the hell would I be in a skirt.

I guess no matter what, he will always have a weakness for JUDY, even in divorce! LOL! Squats got JUDY looking fabulous!

You Lost Me...I Found Me...

This was probably my greatest accomplishment this year...walking away completely. Our divorce was officially finalized and I was allowed true happiness. No more insults, put downs, explaining to young kids why daddy was yelling and punching holes in the wall. No more feeling I wasn't good enough, no more sleepless nights...I can finally go into a new year at peace. Looking forward to 2017. I made it!

Just another night with the wasband and I

So yesterday was the first, so that is day the wasband really can't stand me since he has to give me a check. Since our divorce our words have become less and less friendly, which is sad, since we have known each other for over 17 years. So this was last nights convo... Wasband: Have my receipt ready, I am on my way He arrives, I am writing out his receipt Wasband: When are you changing your name? Me: I'm not, the kids are still in school, so it's easier to keep it. Don't worry, you can marry her and she can take your name, it's no big deal. Wasband:  You dropped something So I look down on the ground, turn around in circles, I see nothing. Me: I don't see anything, I don't have a clue what you could be talking about. Wasband: I'm going to back up and shine the lights on it. Walk by the basketball goal, look down. Me: There is nothing there. I can't see a thing. Then the light bulb in my head went on, I see what is going on now. Wasband

Marriage is Teamwork!

One spouse cannot build a marriage alone when the other spouse is committed to destroying it. Marriage works when both husband & wife work together as a team to build their marriage. Teammates do not compete against each other; they complement each other.   Teammates do not pull each other down; they encourage & support each other. Teammates do not fight in the opposites direction; they face the same direction & fight the same opponent together. Marriage teamwork is not about me; it's about us, we & ours. There is no greater example of teamwork than husband & wife. Hand in hand together, let every couple work together for the success of their marriage. Marriage is not a solo performance, it's a duet.
