Seasoning: A bit of this and a bit of that

The water in the kitchen sink still isn't working. I did use the sprayer attachment while I was doing the dishes right before the water stopped running. In thinking back, that's what happened the other time, too. Except it started working again after about a half hour. I cleaned everything out from under the sink, have been turning those shut-off knobbys on and off but nothing, no water comes out. Guess I'll have to call a plumber.

This morning I go to my new employer to "sign up" with the Social Security Card and all. Then they will schedule a time to train me and then I can sign up for shifts and actually work. It's been so long that I'm just a bit nervous about it. Plus this is a completely new job, I've never done this type of work before. So it should be interesting and exciting.

Right after the new employer I have a counseling appointment today. I had started going only a week before I got fired (talk about good timing!) because of all the stress. After getting fired I went every week for the rest of that month. That horrible termination letter that I was handed at the final interview said that I would have health coverage until the end of the month. But the counseling appointments were denied by my health insurance even though they happened during the same month. A dentist appointment was also denied by my insurance. I ended up having to pay the dentist myself but the insurance finally did kick in for the counseling appointments. It was several hundred dollars and I had absolutely no source of money at the time. So it was a good motivation for me to convince them to pay out! Now I only go to the counseling appointments every three weeks. Even so, it seems to come up quickly. Seems like I just went to one!

I haven't heard anything about Open House yesterday. The Real Estate agent was going to call me right after but he didn't. I'm assuming (sadly) that maybe nobody came to the Open House again. That R.E. company doesn't advertise very well. Probably barely anyone even knew that there WAS an Open House. I'm still hoping some people walked through it, but am doubting that.

Well, it's Monday and the season's are changing today. What is your favorite season, and why?

Maybe the the sprayer nozzle valve is stuck.
That used to happen to me once in a while.
Smack it around to see if it unsticks and starts to work again.
I can't see why it would just cut off like that.
The only other reason would be its leaking somewhere but you'd have seen the river running through the kitchen.

Selling a house is so difficult. Mine still hasn't sold. I first listed in early 2006 by owner and I wish I would have listed with a realtor back then. It's not listed right now, but the renters are moving out next month even though they have a year lease and they're only six months into it. The property management company is going to re-list it in October.

My favorite season is probably fall, although I love spring too. I don't even mind winter, but I dislike summer. Fall always has that feeling of change in the air. Maybe it's from growing up going to school with the summers off. Starting back to school was always a big thing. Even now after I've been out of school longer than I ever was in school it feels like t here's something new on the horizon.

I hope you don't have to call a plumber, as they are very expensive---just to show up! Then add the work they do to that....Better to google the problem and find out how to fix it yourself!
Thanks for dropping in on me!
