I came home from work today to discover my hot water heater had sprung a serious leak. Water was just gushing out of it. I've had to turn the water completely off and now I'm waiting for my gas company to get back to me to talk about getting a new one.
But, once again, the timing of my misfortune is quite fortunate. I've probably got enough money saved to pay for it. I just hate to have to buy a new one since I want to be out of here by December and I'll have to use my moving money. Maybe I can return it when I move? Plus I bought a whole bunch of bottled water to take on my trip last week and only drank about 1/3 of it. So we won't go thirsty.
So, not a disaster, not the end of the world, just one of those annoying bumps. But it seems like I'm always hitting them just when things are starting to get better.
And maybe it's a good thing -- I got the USDA loan application and they have raised their minimum credit score 20 points. So maybe by the time I'm ready to apply again, my score will have gone up some more.
