I called in sick to work this morning. However, I’m not actually sick. Would you like to know why I called in sick when I am not sick? Oh, I bet you do!! Are you ready for it???
…the no hot water saga has begun again. WOOOOOOO!! Last summer we marked a record high of days without hot water or any water at all in our apartment building. Isn’t that wonderful???? (**note: please read that last sentence with heavy sarcasm)
It’s nice to have the morning off as it’s been a longish week, but not being able to shower makes me feel gross. As of right now the hot water has been off for 24 hours, and though there are signs posted saying that it will be fixed by 10:30am, I’m betting on 2pm. I will be SHOCKED if I can shower before noon. *sigh*
Anyway, last night I received a bit of bright news that made my whole week!! I’m still an Indian!!!! ahhaha!! For those of you who didn’t know (or that couldn’t tell by my whiter than white skin color in my photographs) I have Métis heritage and that entitles me to certain bursaries from the university. Well, I applied MONTHS ago and hadn’t heard a thing (I had it by this time last year) and assumed that maybe I just wasn’t Indian enough this year. However, there was a lovely little cheque in my mailbox last night and now I am a happy happy lady. :)
Lastly, I finally ordered my grad photos after much deliberation. I decided to get prints in both #3 and #4 as I couldn’t decide. It wasn’t as expensive as I thought it would be so it all worked out!!
So, I’ll keep you posted on our no hot water situation. It’s really quite fun. Haaaaaaa no.
