notmypresident: (Scream and Scream Again)
Last night brought a clusterfuck of catastrophes, including (but not limited to):


  • Yet another ant invasion. I hate these motherfuckers, I really do. Though it's entirely illogical, whenever these pests invade my space I begin to feel as if they're crawling all over me. They're not, of course, and perhaps that speaks more to my fragile mental state than I should admit. But after spraying the affected area thoroughly with Raid and then cleaning away their dead carcasses, I had to take a shower. Yuck.

  • A clog in the sink drain for the washing machine. This happens about once a year because I (frankly) forget to clean out the lint trap in the sink. My fault, and not a major catastrophe. But still...

  • Some sort of system error in my dialysis machine somehow led to a leak of fluids. Kinda scary, since patients are told over and over that if there's any sort of a leak in the fluid bags that you should toss them out in order to avoid a peritonitis infection (which can be deadly without immediate treatment). The system seems fine now, but I'll be paying close attention tonight to ensure that everything goes right.

Had all of these things (including some not worth mentioning) happened to me a couple of weeks ago, I would have buried my head in the sand and pretended that everything was fine. But because I've been accomplishing big things in little ways, the addition of these problems to my plate didn't overwhelm me. Well, maybe a little. But it's an incredibly beautiful morning, and I've already finished some important house chores...

... just in time for Another Hot Guy.
