Just when I think that consolidating all my blogs into one will make me post more often, the length of time between this post and my last post proves otherwise. Oh well.

It’s only Tuesday, which is horribly depressing. I wore gloves this morning as it was a rather bit chilly outside. Two degrees. Not even the coldest we’ve had yet but thanks to yesterday’s rain, it was quite damp. I can’t believe summer has shut down so fast. You wouldn’t believe how fast the leaves have turned and fallen here.

Last Wednesday I stayed home from work (thanks migraine) and Dave, sweetheart that he is, decided to come home for lunch. When he got home, he mentioned some water gushing onto the street a few houses down. Yup, another water break. We had a water break in front of our house last winter. He said a baracade was up, so the city HAD been there, but wasn’t doing anything about it. Saturday morning we get a knock at the door – its the city – they were about to shut off our water for several hours. SATURDAY! Couldn’t they have done it Friday when most people were at work/school? Or better yet, Wednesday afternoon or Thursday when the problem first came up? There was a fire hydrant right next to the water break – I wonder what the water pressure would have been like if that hydrant was needed.

But anyway, now there’s a messier front yard than ours on our block. They really didn’t do a good job of cleaning up our hard in the spring. They threw some dirt down and left it. I tell ya, if the house four down gets new sod in the spring, the city will be hearing from me!
