I was wrong about yesterday. Molly did get bitten by that stray dog. It’s a smaller bite, doesn’t need stitches, but it definitely broke through the skin. It hurts (she bites and growls if I try to touch it), but I managed to get some neosporin on it after muzzling her. The vet said to keep an eye on it for infection. I’m a suck mom for missing it during my initial check on her.
The drama of the day for today? Gas leak inside the house. Yep, apparently coming from our hot water heater. Thankfully a very nice man from AGL came out and solved the problem. He had a little geiger-counter looking thing that beeped louder and more frequently when more gas was present. I explained to him that I’d never even seen a gas water heater before this house.
Him: “What? What do you mean you haven’t seen one?”
Me: “I just haven’t. This is the first one. I don’t even know what those buttons do.”
Him: “Are you from Florida or something?”
Me: “Actually, yes.”
So he gave me a tutorial on the water heater, plus the stove and oven. He even plugged in the washer and dryer since we still haven’t gotten to that. I should have had him look at the fridge, since that’s apparently on the fritz now, too. Viva la home ownership!
