Has anyone seen my attention span?

I seem to have lost it. I'm fidgety today - not in a bad way, just in an "I-don't-want-to-sit-still-and-concentrate-on-work" way. Only two hours left.

I'm taking Friday off. My leaky shower is driving me crazy, and I am DETERMINED to fix it. I'm about 99% sure that it's just a washer needing to be replaced - that's been done twice already. Ideally I may need new fixtures, but if I can replace the washers myself, perhaps I can buy myself another year or so to get to a better place financially to be able to afford a really complete fix. But I can't stand the dripping, dripping. Not to mention that it's the hot tap leaking, so now that the weather has cooled off, the warm water is condensing on the top of the shower and on the bathroom window. Yuck.

I'm sure I've got stuff to write about, it's just not coming to me at the moment. So I'd better get back to work - I'll write more later.

If the dripping really starts driving you crazy you can tie a sheet around the shower head and just let it hang to the floor, the water will soak the sheet but won't drip, drip, drip.

Danelle, I tried that last night - worked great for the dripping, it didn't disturb me nearly as much! However, I foolishly used a queen-sized sheet. Since mine is more of a pour than a drip, the sheet was soaked and very, very heavy this morning. Ugh. LOL Maybe I should try a smaller sheet, just to cut down on the dripping.
