Deep Breath please....

So now that the oven is working fine and that Xmas prep is well under way...

The hot water heater decided to spring a leak on Friday night.  I was running like a chicken without a head!

Finally to calm my nerves I wrapped a couple of Xmas gifts and with a clear head I was able to attend to the mess.

I filled buckets, pitchers and bottles and then I brought out the ladder ,closed the breaker and the valves.

When the water stopped it was 11:30 pm.

 This ol'girl was built in 1998.

 It was running from around the valve.

 That didn't stop me from baking the traditional Quebec
meatpies, just in time for Xmas

 Of course the kitchen was a mess after...and I had to bring 
all the dishes down to my Dad's to wash.
In the meantime.....

 Yoda was lounging in the cat grass.

Here's the new hot water heater.
All bright spanking new
 The installation was over at 1:30 pm.
I was to get hot water by 3:00 pm.

Guess what?


it is 10:39 pm and no hot water....

I just want to scream and cry

They are coming back tomorrow.....

Oh, dear.. Such a thing in front of Christmas. You're so brave to face it like this. You even baked wonderful meatpies! I envy you even a bit:) I've no patience when these things happen to me. I brake and spoil everything...
