My little world is so close to perfect and things just hardly ever go wrong. Last night I was so tired, I went to bed at 8:00. That meant I was awake at 4 a.m. I read til a little after 6 but I should’ve stayed in bed and read all day I think.
As soon as I got up, Speck got sick. We were outside several times before daylight but he goes into his crate when he gets sick so I had to wash his dog bedding. Then I turned the TV on to hear the news and see what the stock market was going to do (which I still haven’t checked) and there’s no signal. I did all the things Vince does — unplug it, turn it off and on . . nothing. Once Speck’s bedding was done in the washer, I decided to take the sheets of the bed and wash them. I was in a washing mood. Put them on to wash and got in the shower. When I got done drying my hair I heard a buzzing sound. Traced it to the laundry room. The washer is buzzing, there’s water on the floor and it won’t do anything.
I don’t care so much about the washer but . . I only have one set of sheets for the bed. I don’t like the way sheets smell when they’ve been in a closet or drawer so I always wash them and put them back on the bed. One set of sheets . . stuck in a dead washer full of soapy water.
I took those out, put them in a big pot and carried them to the bath tub where I finished “washing” them. I wrung each one out by hand and am putting one sloppy wet sheet in the dryer at a time. Maybe by bed time, they’ll be dry.
There was good news today too. I went to the doctor for my routine maintenance checkup and everything was fine. Blood pressure was excellent. Blood work results will probably result in cholesterol meds which I’ve resisted for years but not only do I love Blue Bell ice cream but both my parents and grandparents had cholesterol problems so I give up fighting it and will take the meds if the doctor recommends it.
Then I went to Kroger and other than it being about 30 degrees inside the store, I got my groceries, got some good deals. Nolan Ryan grass fed beef with a use by date of tomorrow was marked down from $7.29/pound to $4.69/pound. They had 7 packs and I got them all. Hoarder!
Vince is home for lunch .. will finish later.
