Hanging in ... by a thread!

Was a rough day. Started off with hubby being upset about prospective big property tax hike. (front page of newspaper) And we thought moving from city suburbs to small town was a way to have lower living costs in future !!! :( Then he goes downstairs to furnace room and discovers that the furnace humifier has been leaking for a while and we had a big clean-up to do. We couldn't get the water to stop so we plugged it and called a repairman. Luckily he came in a couple of hours (unusual in this area!!) and he couldn't even get the water to stop. It must be a problem with the shutoff valve. Anyway, eventually he got it stopped and said to watch it over the next week to see that his fix holds. Oh lordy....lately there is never a dull moment!! Tomorrow up at 4:30 a.m. to commute to work. I guess if will be a relief from a house in turmoil! We are still waiting to get our leaking roof fixed in the spring. We don't know if insurance will cover it - and they won't say until they see it again in the spring. It is so hard to focus on wellness in times of stress. However, we went to a chinese restaurant at lunchtime and all I had was an egg roll and won ton soup. And I passed up the almond cookie, too!! I am proud of that because I have so little will-power. So I think that SPARK is really helping. I had a healthy bowl of large flake oatmeal for breakfast and a banana. So hope the rest of you have a better start for the week than this!! And the weather report for tonight is terrible! Wish me luck in the morning!
