4 am Madness!

Black friday. Woman in need of sheets. Cant resist over 60% off. Jcpenney card in hand. She leaves her sleeping husband in bed and heads off to JcPenney at 3:30 am with coupons in hand. Finds great deals. Comes home happy. The end. :)

Harrison thinks I'm nuts! But he loved what I came home with. So success! :) I saved over 60% off. I finally got that down comforter I have always wanted. Normally this 5 star down comforter is 300$. Me? I got it for 100$ :) And I got discounted sheets and comforter set! Can't beat that! Everything I bought was at the least 60% off.

Now all I need is a duvet cover.....hmm... drat. oh ya, and some sleep. zzzzzzzzz

Draining Pipe Over My Bath Tub?

Slowly, I am starting to get a little weary of our new apartment. Granted it is a beautiful area, all new appliances, the place looks amazing.... but there are 2 little problem areas that are just getting me a little down.

I noticed when we first moved in that there was an open pipe above our bath tub. A little weird in my opinion, but nothing was happening. So I ignored it. Until one day.... I was in the kitchen. I heard this weird sound. I ran to the bathroom and looked in the tub. The open pipe above our tub was streaming out water! Once it finally stopped it dripped the rest of the day. There is something terribly wrong with this picture. Something must not be right. Whenever the air conditioning went on it poured and dripped overflow.

We asked about it and we were told it was the overflow pipe from the air conditioning and that is how it was suppose to be. WHAT?!!!

Ok, a little confused here. I am expected to take a bath in that tub and never know when that pipe is going to poor or drip water on my head? I am also suppose to take showers with the air conditioner overflow pipe above my head? Ok, this seems a little bit absurd.

Maybe this is part of the reason why we have an average of 50% humidity in the apartment!!!!
Oh, yes, lets not forget that our heater is a humidifier! :P

It looks like we are going to have quite a battle next week dealing with all this. Just what I want to do Thanksgiving Week. But even with everything that has been hapening, I definitely have many things to be thankful for. :)

I have Returned...

Internet has arrived! I can finally start working on my business. I have this really cool craft room! I am so excited to start putting my workstation together. I still have so much to accomplish with this new apartment. I am slowly starting to feel like this is my home. As soon as we get the humidity problem taken care of and I finish setting up, things can get back to normal.

Is it normal for an apartment to be 50% humid? We got a humidity detector because I thought maybe I was going crazy. Not the case, at this moment outside it is 25% humid and in the apartment it is 50% humid. Hopefully the apartment can get this taken care of. I do not do well with humidity. :(

I still have so much to do, as usual, but am starting to accomplish so much! Let the creativity begin!
