Hurray, I’m still alive! Well, barely, but nonetheless. Life is still the same old depressing blah blah that it’s been all year long. 2008 has been one crappy year I gotta say. Nothing new to report really. Some days are better then others. There have been some pretty depressing things that have occurred but there have been some freaking awesome things that have occurred as well.
Something depressing is happening but I am hesitant to mention it. Oh what the heck - I am turning black and orange. Or rather, I turned orange and now I am turning black. You see, in Indiana the water is very hard and mineraly so you have to have a water softener. The water is not fit to drink or cook with or even to bathe in. It’s disgusting. Our water softener stopped working a couple of months ago. First my hair and toe nails started turning orange. Then my finger nails turned orange. Now my finger tips and nails are turning black from the mineral build up. We can’t even wash our clothes in our home anymore because everything turns orange. It’s the damnedest thing I ever saw. It’s literally disgusting. And the more I wash my hands the blacker they turn. Unfortunately I am an obsessive hand washer so I am getting the worst of the situation. It’s going to be extremely expensive to replace our water softener because of the plumbing issues involved. So by the time my money arrives (I’m expecting a big check) and we can replace the water softener I may have to change my race on my drivers license. Good thing I’m fond of orange.
