Slice of Life Challenge #20 - Changes

So my schedule today was to do a few things tonight: go over prompts, put together a dresser, maybe go to kickboxing. What really happened? Let me tell you!

I left work only AFTER opening an e-mail virus (I know, I think my hair is turning blonde) which caused over 100 e-mails to be sent within an hour. Now my e-mail may be changed...how many places do I have that e-mail address all over?

After working out, I was on the phone for 20 minutes with IKEA and I'm not one step closer to fixing the dresser.

I walked outside to take the garbage out and heard a hissing noise. It was coming near the house...by the gas meter.

Yep...after pouring water and soap on it, sure enough, tiny bubbles came out from under a joint. I called and reported the gas leak and proceeded to wait AN HOUR outside...okay, only 30. The other thirty was spent in my neighbor's house where I was desiring my house and the banana that I had left on my kitchen counter.

The guy showed an hour later and ended up telling me that he'll be back tomorrow to fix it...To think I could have stayed in my house, had dinner, worked on the prompts, even put together a dresser.

Oh well...I'm glad that it's not overly serious, but this was not how I wanted to spend my night.

And if you fix dressers...

Glad the gas leak wasn't serious, hope the virus isn't too much more serious, hope the rest of the week's been nicer to you!
