Murphy and his law

So... yesterday I canceled the appointment to get my perfectly functioning toilet replaced on Friday.

Last night, the toilet started acting up. It won't stop a low level flush...

But, happily, I had already gotten Plan B started.  My fabulous Amyworks said they would pick up a toilet, install it and haul away the old one. Sheila at Amyworks sugggested an American Standard Cadet and Home Depot or Lowes.

Lowes and Home Depot both had an elongated, standard height (I hate those tall toilets for old people), dual flush American Standard Cadet. Lowes said it could be ready for pickup in a week. Home Depot said they have 19 of them at my store and it could be picked up anytime.  Home Depot won. Plus, it's closer to here.

Ordered the toilet and then sent email to Amyworks with my availability. Done and it's good. I feel way more comfortable with Amyworks than Unknown Plumber anyway.

Soon the Toilet Caper of 2014 will be over.


I went to sleep at 9 last night. I woke up very briefly several times. About 4 am Zoey came in to check on me and then went back to her bed. I slept right through to 6 and time to get up for swimming. I felt way more rested and fresh when I got up than even I normally do.  Swimming was ok. My back started really hurting - lower back - about midway through.  I paid close attention to keeping my head down. This helps and it did but still, ouch.  It's a little better now.


There's a food shop that opened up yesterday across the street. It's kind of a Whole Foods reduction. It's a very small shop with a lot of high end foodie items of all kinds. They also have some to go stuff for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Expensive but good.  When I first head they were going to open, I went to check out their first shop (this is the second). I think it might be a good addition to the 'hood.  I will probably go over this afternoon and see what the last minute dinner to go options look like.


The baseball game is at 10 this morning. So that's where I'll be until it's done.
