I should have gotten a different name for my website. How-to-barely- survive.com or How- to- live- on- pennies- a- day- because- you- have- no- choice.com
The Forbes quote of the day, from Frederique Dame “Whether success or failure, you need to move forward. The momentum is what is critical.”
So I blew air in the pipes and forced some water out. Got about 10 gallons out, still clogged. Then I carried in some water for tonight. And I took my hoe and went out to find the hose so I can drain that hot water tank and try and get the thing flushed out and just hope like mad it breaks loose. Because that is the last thing I can do from inside the house and not under it.
I found the end at the chaise lounge, next to the garden wagon. I have no idea how long that hose is. I dug for a long time. Three and four attempts over the course of the afternoon. I’d say I dug 20 ft in one direction only to find out it looped and went back the same way and now I have both ends out and who the heck knows how much deeper it can go. I’m pooped and I fall even more when I’m tired and if I break an ankle or something, man! I don’t know what I’d do.
It could be bad. You know I never used to think about stuff like that, that breaking a bone in my position could actually be like game over. I’m coping with my Charcot Marie Tooth, barely, my leg braces are broken and can no longer be replaced so I tried to make my own from different things, which actually work pretty well, so that’s good, I am surviving triple negative breast cancer for over five years, which is a miracle of it’s own, that’s another thing to be grateful for.
Let’s see, rare muscular dystrophy, broken leg braces, my truck is broke down, no running water in the house, but luckily have water in the yard. It really sounds like my life sucks and all that but, things could be so much worse. Yes, my telephone line started crackling yesterday and then when I woke up I found out the line had no dial tone but the internet was OK! So there ya go. Made it through the day!
With Momentum. With nothing but heart.
Tomorrow I’ll dig the rest of that hose up. I mean, really… how long is that thing?!
Then, I’ll wash my hair.
