I gave in to my needs. I went back to my old loves, heating pad and pain meds. I just couldn't stay away. Well I'm back to square one now. I've been sleeping when I can and doing minor house chores when I can.
Something we need desperately to get done around the house, is fix the hot water heater. The heating element is going out. I love molten lava hot water when I do the dishes or take showers and it's like 3 minutes into washing with hot water when it turns into cryogenic stasis ice cold. The kind of heater we have is a Point of Use Tankless water heater. Meaning it only heats the water when you need it hot. The heating element goes out on that thing like clock work every year. It's the build up in the jets. I really wonder if this is a regular problem with everyone or just the model we use. Sigh*, I need to do some online analysis.
