Right place at the right time

I had to stay home with Lorelai today because she had a fever all night and didn't sleep well. So neither did I, after getting up multiple times to comfort her and then bringing her into bed with us at 4:30, where she tossed and turned for hours. But then like magic, her tylenol wore off and she was fever-free all day.

...Until right before I put her to bed.???? No idea what's going on with her. So we'll see how tonight goes...
 
Anyway, it ended up being a blessing in disguise that I was home with her today, because I just happened to notice that our water heater, which is on our second floor (why does anyone think that's a good idea?!), had started to leak. Add this to the rest of the list of things that are going/have gone wrong in our house. Sigh.

Thankfully, I noticed in time to give Adam a frantic call and he was able bring a maintenance guy from one of his properties over to take a look. At first we thought we'd have to replace it, which wouldn't happen until sometime next week. But fortunately, it looks like it's just a problem with the release valve on top, which was a quick fix.

So I guess today wasn't so bad. Got to spend the day in my yoga pants hanging with the cutest girl in the world, and I single-handedly prevented a house catastrophe (nope, not overstating that one at all, ha!).

  2. Oh my goodness! Rough day, but glad to hear that the water heater issue was a fairly easy fix! Hopefully little lady is feeling better soon! We recently had issues with a water line freezing off in our old property and were all slightly under the weather about 2 weeks ago too. *hugs of comfort*

  3. Landon was doing the same thing last week! Fever at night then fine for most of the day and then he'd hit another fever. It was SO frustrating (and sad). I missed 2 days of work. And I'm still playing catch up. Blah. Hope she is better now!
