Winter storm warnings. Really? I'll refrain from shouting out what I'm thinking inside my head about that.  Kind of a minor self-imposed censorship happening.

Well, the water softener lady came out to the house on Tuesday night. That poor girl had a long-ass day. She did a whole bunch of water testing. Evidently the system isn't working at all. Now I don't even have soft water which at least the old system did. I felt bad for her because she's so upset about it. I told her I'm actually afraid to even do laundry. I had thrown in a couple of crappy towels the other night, and when I looked at the machine while it was running, it basically looked like swamp water. In other words, the water was baby-shit green. So yeah....won't be throwing in any laundry I actually care about.

She's thinking maybe we got a defective unit. She said she's never had that happen before, which of course made me bust out laughing. I think she thought I was crazy until I explained to her that this comes as no surprise to me. It's just the kind of shit that happens to us.

So she filled up some bottles of yellow water and went on her merry way back to Iron Mountain. She was going to call headquarters, yada yada yada and then get back to us.  She called us early yesterday while we were on our way to Madison, and she should be at our house right now. I can't wait to get home to hear the solution.

In light of all the lovely winter weather, I decided at least my nails could be springish. 
Fresh Paint Alex's Lemonade, Essie Naughty Nautical, Sinful Colors Sweet Tooth,, Kleancolor Pastel Pink water marble
After throwing on one coat of white, I used some purdy colors for my water marble.  The yellow is Fresh Paint Alex's Lemonade, the green is Essie Naughty Nautical, the purple is Sinful Colors Sweet Tooth and the last is Kleancolor Pastel Pink.

I liked it enough that I left it on for the past couple of days. It really needed to come off Tuesday night, but I was too lazy. I have a bit of tip wear from all the typing I've been doing so hopefully tonight I will motivate.

I also have some new polishes that should arrive today that I was sent to try. They're from a company by the name of "Motives", and they sell polish as well as other beauty stuff. I'm looking forward to trying them and will be posting my results when I do,

So that'll be fun....nice to have a little something to look forward to!


  1. Sorry for all the things that are going wrong with your water softener and I have to say it's good to know that things like that happen to other people besides me, good luck.
    P.S. I hope the Spring mani prompts Mother Nature to stop the snow and let Spring arrive to the U.P.
