So the plumber returns my call at 10:30 a.m. this morning.

This is the call I made 2 weeks ago to him. *lol* I tell him a couple things on the list to which he replies, "I"ll be there in 15 minutes." Oh great. I quickly get dressed. I went to bed at 5:30 am so I was still asleep when the phone rang. His 15 was more like 45. Oh well, I was plenty wide awake by the time he showed up. *lol*

He looked over the things we had for him and said, "I can do this right now. Probably the water heater today too." He heads out to the truck to get some tools. At this point, we have no fixtures in our shower. We have a new hole in our kitchen wall above the former access to the tub fixtures. *lol*

He's at lunch and will be back later. I have most of the "homework" he gave me completed. Unfortunately, I can't find the tubing for the ice maker. I did find the valves. Oh well, if he puts in the valve in the water pipe, I can do the tubing later.

UGH! Bummed out right now...

I lost my backup flash drive for CareerStep (medical transcription school) stuff.  I kept old forum posts, reports, notes, Shorthand backups, word lists, and miscellaneous school stuff on that thing.  It fell off the desk drawer where it was hanging and into the trash bin that was dumped into the main trash. Guess what today was?  Yep, trash day, and we even had it out to the curb on time.  UGH!!!!  For once I wished we missed trash day, but I won't tell my son that or he might accidentally forget on purpose next week.  *lol*

That was my first flash drive that I bought when I went back to college in '02.  It's tiny (128 mb), but it was attached to my favorite lanyard from my college.  It was a pretty purple while the lanyard was red with white lettering.  So what if they clashed, they were both easy to see for my weak middle aged eyes.  *lol*

I can and have recreated the backup information on another flash drive that is an ugly black and holds more data (2 gb), but I want my old one back!  Waa waa!!!!

Okay, back to your regular more important programming. I think I am done whining.  :D
