Thing One: The rug is okay; you can breathe a sigh of relief. The spot came out! This means that the cats are still alive.
Thing Two: The mold/water damage is being worked on as you read this. The new tenant luckily still had his old place for the month of July (why? I have no idea.) so he is getting two weeks prorated rent and a new kitchen wall sans leak. He seems okay with the whole deal. And the tenant next to him gets new cabinets and wall due to the damage which he is stoked about because, between you and me, his kitchen was falling apart and in desperate need of repair. The chick above who had the leaky pipe unfortunately has to deal with a big ol’ hole in her wall for a few more days but she can wash her dishes again.
Thing Three: I have not spoken to my friend since a failed attempt to meet for tea about a month ago. I guess I haven’t been able to muster the enthusiasm to reach out after she flaked AGAIN. She made the plans with me, then texted to say she over-slept, then asked to meet later, then didn’t contact me until THREE HOURS after we were supposedly getting together. And the text basically told me she hung out with another friend but she “really wants to hang out.” Really? You want to hang out? Because you sure don’t act like it. Does my time and friendship mean nothing? I am still so angry about being treated with such careless disregard that I can’t contact her lest I go off on her.
Thing Four: I still don’t know what to wear to BlogHer but I ordered a dress. It cost a lot more than I usually spend so if I don’t look spectacular in it I will return it and use the money to drink copious amounts of booze. That’s called drowning your troubles.
Thing Five: I tried one of the chocolate chip cookies recipes out of the long list of suggestions you all sent to me (thank you!). It was the Mrs. Fields Blue Ribbon recipe. They were good but I have not yet reached perfection. I did buy an oven thermometer and discovered my oven temperature is inaccurate. AND my baking soda expired in 2005. WOAH! Way to be on top of things, Sizzle. I have been instructed to make one of the Alton Brown recipes next because the Fella has a major hard on man crush on him. But first this weather has too cool off. There is no way I am turning my oven on, not even for the man I love.
Anything else I am forgetting to update you on?
