water, gas
My subdivision uses a community well and they're flushing the system today. (They only have to flush the system three times a year.) They sent emails and put up signs and I knew this yesterday, but forgot this morning. So I can't take a shower for another couple hours, I think. Fortunately, I just refilled my jug of water for the refrigerator, so I was able to use some of that very cold water for brushing my teeth! :)

My first month in the house, I got a huge gas bill, which I paid but they later corrected. I got my most recent gas bill yesterday. I still have a credit of about $35. For those of you who might be interested (Mom and Dave), I used 31 CCF of gas this past month. It's getting colder, though, and I'm sure I'll more than use up that $35 credit for the next bill. I'm making a conscious effort to get used to using the furnace as little as possible.

I've got plenty of things on my to-do list for this weekend. None of which I'm all that excited about doing, but... eh. Right now I think I'm going to take my unshowered self to the grocery store real quick, because I'm hungry.

What's that smell??

But seriously, it isn't a good feeling to go and use the water and not have any there. Glad you had something to let you brush your teeth.

Sadly, you are quite right about the remaining credit vanishing quicly. Heating season is upon us and it will be with us for a time. When you think of it, it's a good news/bad news situation to hear the furnace kick in. Good news is you have heat, bad news is, we'll all be paying dearly for it.

Your Mom spent time in the office this morning, while I did some things around the house, including covering the kitchen airconditioner for the winter. We then met at Sam's Club to get some snacks for the "Gathering" at church tomorrow and some lunch. Then home to watch Penn State lose another close game and Michigan win over Purdue. (another good news/bad news moment.

Talk to you on Sunday, we hope.

Dave

Aww... what a shame. :)

The Michigan-MSU game is on Saturday. I think I'm going to have to get a U of M userpic. (I thought I had one already.)

Michigan doesn't beat Ohio State until next month, but I've got that in my calendar already. :)

Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu'ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan
the leaders and best
Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu'ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan,
the champions of the West!



It's fun pretending I care about sports... when "my" team wins! ;)
