Weekend in Review

It was a good weekend .............

On Friday mini me came to town and she and I went to the local munch.  Not a bad one - a good turn out - lots of chatter and laughter and good food. (Still no single Doms looking for a slightly used sub - but am I ready for that?)

Saturday I decided to tackle the linen closet here at the apartment.  When I moved in there were two areas where I just shoved boxes/stuff and to hide them until I was ready.  One was the storage cupboard (sorted that out last weekend) and the linen closet - which I did this weekend.  And then feeling energized and wanting to be more organised I even tackled the spare bedroom and all the baskets/shelves in there.  Basically I spent the days tweaking the storage areas to my satisfaction.

The one kinda scary thing............... 

A couple of times last week I caught Miss Ashes studiously studying the baseboard heater in the living room.  I figured there must be a bug or shadows or dust in it - cause I couldn't see anything!!  

On Sunday morning I was sitting on the sofa, drinking my first cup of coffee with Missy curled up beside me.  I heard a funny sparking sound - I was busy looking around for the source of noise - Missy hopped off the sofa as though her ass was on fire and moved to the opposite end of the living room.  

I followed the sound and turned my eyes to the baseboard heater.  It was glowing red!!  It looked as though there might be a fire inside it.  I jumped up and turned off the heat.  The smell of burning wires filled the apartment.  My heart was pounding until I realized this wasn't my problem - per say.  I called the apartment management.  Fortunately the supervisor on duty lives next door.  He was there in a flash.  He turned off the circuit breaker (which I had forgotten was in my apartment!)  

We decided I could wait till Monday to call the electrician and get a new heater installed.  Thankfully we are not in a deep freeze !!!  

Once the excitement was over - I kinda shook.  I felt alone and a bit scared.  BUT then I realized living in an apartment is better than having a man living with you.... I didn't have to listen to the stress / swearing about finding an electrician - or the bitching about how much it was gonna cost to replace.  YAY! for apartment life.

The other less than stellar thing I did was go off my eating plan.  OH how I pigged out on the weekend - AND - didn't go to the gym to try and handle the extra calories/sugars. BUT today is Monday - and I will simply climb back on that exercise horse and continue on........... 

And that was my weekend  - in review.

Men are so predictable all over the world.
