I called a plumber. Last night, after it was brought to my attention that there was no way I could get a rented 100 ft drain snake into my car let alone down into my basement by myself, I called a plumber. I am still amazed at the relief that washed over me as I made that phone call. So, here I sit waiting for said plumber to arrive. My original intention was to get up at 5 AM, take a camp style shower, go to work for a few hours and then come home to meet the plumber at 9 AM. But it was too easy to give in today. Today, I let myself sleep until almost seven. I took my camp style shower. I got on my yoga mat, something that hasn't happened in over a week. I lingered over my breakfast. I peeled an orange for Chris.
Then, when Chris realized his wedding ring was missing, I searched until it was found. And when we realized it went missing because it's too big for him now, I found a chain from an old necklace and placed it around his neck. Then I allowed myself to cry. Because today I am human.
