Today’s Outfit of the Day (OOTD) was captured at the gym’s locker room at work. HAHA, here I am trying to be a serious photographer and I’m showing you horrible photos with horrible backgrounds. There’s a story behind taking this photo in the locker room, but let’s take a moment to appreciate the doodles I added on purpose to hide the scale.
//cardigan – thrift store// scarf – gift// green shirt – Marshalls// corduroy pants – vintage 2003// shoes – jellypop//
Since Sunday morning, we’ve been without running water. Hence the reason why I’m in the locker room – to take a shower. Yup, you guessed it. The main pipe in the MA house was blocked thanks to some tree roots.
How I took for granted the quick 8 mile trip to my parents house when we faced house catastrophes. So, what did we do? You guys, I asked Mr. P if we could go grocery shopping. I HATE grocery shopping. I HATE it so much that I’m the girl whose purposefully brings her book and finds a spot in the store’s coffee shop just to avoid grocery shopping. Large concrete buildings and arthritis are NOT friends. Enemies. We’re enemies. BUT I actually went grocery shopping. On purpose! I even skipped and jumped in puddles on my way out.
Anyway, the plumber finally showed up at 10pm last night when our original appointment was at 8am. He had the audacity to leave a quote on a post-it note in the mailbox. Did anyone else think of that Sex and the City episode…ANY ONE???!!
I told Mr. P there’s absolutely no way are we going with him. We called another one that was to arrive at 2am (Mr. P is a night owl). But, you guessed it. They never showed up!!
So, what is a girl to do? Ask. Ask at work for a plumber. Any plumber. He might know another plumber who could come out. And little behold…I got a name and gave it to Mr. P. He called, got a referral who showed up a half hour later and did the work immediately. He also did it at HALF the cost of what Post-it guy wanted.
I’m pleased to say, our drain is finally fixed. Now, the OOTD pictures on the other hand…hmmm still need to figure this out.
