March seems not to be my month after all.
After the interesting change in weather the other day, the night was not as restful as I hoped.
Of course, they came with the diggers around two in the morning to clean the snow and I woke up in the middle of a new earthquake.
The most upsetting thing was that, despite the entire fuss, despite the lack of sleep, they actually didn’t do too much. This time they simply cleaned a path here and there.
It is not like people need to have the possibility to get to the underground garage or that, if the case is, God forbid, the fire engines have the chance to get closer to the hydrants.
Now, despite the lack of sleep, Rex has his internal clock wound up. At seven a.m. sharp, he is ready for his morning walk and nothing can make him understand that people would like to sleep maybe at least half an hour more. He is not like the alarm clock to press a button and make him shut up.
So, here I was, brazing the snow banks after only a few hours of sleep at an hour when nobody else comes out. Besides that, it didn’t even last long. Due to the cold, I had to carry him back home as he froze with one little paw in the air as he is bound to do.
Then, the day unfolded with one thing after another. First, I had to chase the mutt who stole my daughter’s sneaker. It wouldn’t have been a big deal but on one hand, the sneakers are relatively new, and on the other, she is very attached to her things.
Anyway, that was nothing, given the general output of the day.
A few days ago, a round thing fell from my kitchen ceiling. It seemed to be a piece of plaster that was stuck in a round hole. I am not knowledgeable about such things so, after I admired the hole and decided it seemed harmless, I did my best to forget about it.
This afternoon, after having a shower in my en-suite bathroom, I went downstairs to prepare lunch for everyone. When I got there, my eyes were about to jump out of their sockets: the little hole turned into a veritable shower and besides that, water was dripping from everywhere in that part of the ceiling.
I haven’t mentioned this, but that hole is exactly above the counter in my kitchen, where I prepare the food for cooking and where I normally leave cakes or such to cool down.
Today, I had a cheese cake left there to cool down. Well, it cooled down for good. I actually found it swimming in water.
Imagine, most part of the afternoon I spent it in cleaning the kitchen after mopping around and gathering water. So, no fun, but just upset and more work afterwards, because the lunch had already been spoilt and I had to make something else.
Now, I will have to discuss the matter with the administration and the maintenance department. Then, I will have to plan and organize to have the dog removed while they come and see what happened. A lot of things to take care of!
As I said at the beginning, March is not my month or at least it seems that way. It’s been only two days. Maybe tomorrow, things will get back to normal.
Let’s see! Till then, have a nice day wherever you are!

Sometimes I have good ideas... (what do you think?)
Sometimes fascinating guests!

Sometimes I have to share some of my frustrations,..
