Happy Loopy Friday!

Why Happy Loopy Friday you ask?? I am beyond exhausted and feeling a bit loopy...I had someone ask me this morning if my boss was on PTO and I heard "Do you have an update?" Oh my...could be a looong day!

Wednesday night I stayed up to late thanks to the Bruins and their triple overtime. (I did not make it to the 3rd OT - I thought I'd take a nap during the intermission and didn't wake up until I heard the sirens from the Blackhawks scoring.) So last night because I was beyond tired J sent me to bed early - which was most appreciated until.... J came in at 10:10pm not ready for bed but to tell me that the hot water heater just blew! The water was pouring out of it into our garage. J got to it not 5 minutes after it blew so the water damage was minimal. We got the gas and the water shut off pretty quickly and worked on getting the water out of the garage.

When I got out to the garage J told me to be careful of the spider - he wasn't sure if it was dead or not. Turns out it was alive and it was not an ordinary was a TARANTULA!! He was small and almost cute but there was no denying that he was a tarantula. After a few minutes of trying to get him to leave on his own J relocated him to our flower garden.

So today we have the plumber coming out to replace the hot water heater...the amount of money we could be paying in fees to the city is insane. It's almost half of the total  quote we received from the plumber!!

I leave you with a super short video of the hot water heater...


  1. BLAH no fun!!!! I hate home repairs! Glad it wasn't worse and thanks for the shiver thinking about a tarantula! EEK!

  2. Spiders...ack!
    Hot water heater...Boo!

  3. Oh gosh we had to replace our water heater a few weeks ago and my husband did it! I was so very proud of him because he is NOT very good at home repairs.

    Yuck on spider!!!!

  4. Oh god, I can NOT watch the Stanley Cup games... not sure if you saw Game 7 between the Bruins and the Toronto Maple Leafs, but... yeah. That was pretty much the worst ever for this gal. :) I love Boston as a city, but really just want those suckers to lose!

    1. LOL - yes, I watched that game. :) I am a Boston girl at heart (originally from MA) I am cheering on my "home" team!
