GEEZ the snow is coming down like crazy in Wisc and Ill. I am sooo grateful it isn’t here yet. I am just not not ready for it yet. Did get the snowblower filled and started today though. Hoping we only get an inch or so out of this storm that is approaching.
I went to the ACE hardware store and bought a darn hose for the washing machine since the plumber didn’t show up like he said it would. I got it all placed on there and did two loads and GUESS WHO showed up? lol YES he did.. well he proceeds to tell me that the hose is NOT the right kind and it will kink up and I will have water everywhere when doing a larger load of clothes. Sooo, he had to leave and go pick up the right part and several others. He was in our house for only 20 minutes and replaced two faucets and two hoses, plus the drain hose. Walked out and said..I’ll send you the bill. OK..so we will see if he bills us for the WHOLE HOUR! The local mechanic we go to charges $85. an hour but if it takes 30 minutes then he only charges half. Hope this plumber does the same. This new machine works great so far and I am hoping to keep it busy on and off for the weekend so that I can get caught up. Seeing how well it works makes me realize how BAD our old machine really was.
Got the house decorated up and now Mom is having misgivings about having her surgery before Christmas. She is very confused and doesn’t want to be sick or in the hospital this year on the holidays I can’t blame her since she was away last year. She had a nice time for Thanksgiving and wants so much to be HOME for Christmas and not elsewhere. I keep telling her that if we postpone it though, the weather could hamper us from getting it done too. We do have to travel a lot when she is in the hospital. I guess it will be up to her to decide. Will be calling the doctor on Monday to see what they suggest. This is necessary surgery but not really that urgent.
HOPE WHEREVER YOU ARE, YOU ARE WARM AND WELL AND
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!
