What a lovely word to start a Sunday, don’t you think? It’s a day of rest and a perfect time to pamper yourself. How do you pamper yourself?
I had thought about taking a nice Epsom salt bath today, but that is not to be. You see, I started smelling what I thought was a gas leak this morning when I went to take the garbage out. It was intermittent so I wasn’t too concerned and because there’s a decaying animal smell as well (which I thought was my garbage, but it’s been confirmed that it’s not!), my smeller was off.
After talking with a good friend this morning, I decided to call the gas company just in case.. The kind man who came out told me that I was smelling propane and not gas. Wow! I guess my nose was right, but not completely specific. The man found that the propane tank for the grill was leaking and turned it off and disconnected it for me. I don’t use the grill so I had no idea. While he was here, I asked him to come down to the basement just to check the gas line etc. Surprisingly, he found 3 gas leaks. I’m ever so grateful that the Universe and God were helping me by making the propane tank leak because otherwise I would have never known that the gas in the basement was leaking.
So he turned off the gas in the house and I called the landlords who said they would get someone over. In the meantime, no hot water for me, no cooking on the stove and no grilling, not to mention, no laundry because I have a gas dryer. And don’t you know it, I didn’t take the clothes out of the dryer last night and now they’re wrinkled! Can you say, UGH??!! I dislike ironing!
So how can I pamper myself today? I guess a warm shower is out of the question, so I think I may just take a nap. I know the gas is turned off so there’s no danger of me not waking up. I think I’ll pamper myself with a nice long nap and now that I can’t cook dinner, I will have to order out! Yippee!
I always have to find the good in any situation! That’s the blessing of being a girl who views life with a glass 1/2 full!
I hope you take some time today to pamper yourself!
