Today we experienced Murphy’s Law first hand. Things started smoothly enough, but by the time I started on my breakfast I could tell things were not going to go smoothly today. I burnt my hash brown and my breakfast burrito exploded in the microwave. That was all minor compared to what was about to happen.
Our washing machine stopped just before the rinse cycle and refused to spin and clean off the laundry Mom put in there. Steven helped us get all the laundry into a dirty clothes hamper and I lugged it upstairs to our bathtub to rinse off and wring out. Sadly, I got a bruise/red marks on my right lower arm from it, but I’m okay now. Also during this time Mom had tried repeatedly to call in her medicine and get the doctor to okay a refill for her. Steven also tried to make some 3D prints of some surprises, which I’ll take pictures of tomorrow or Sunday. After a failed first attempt, the second turned out and the jammed the printer later. Finally, the washing machine just started working and Mom was able to get her medicine. The only drawback there was we couldn’t pay in the pharmacy because they were too busy and the line was so long! Also, I still have a slight migraine or sinus headache. It’s been with me all day long!
Anyway, I am just glad today’s almost over; however, tomorrow will bring another round of sleet, snow, etc. 😦 Not looking forward to that now! So if you don’t see a post tomorrow or Sunday you’ll know why (we might have lost power…I hope not, though). Well, my blessing is I’m glad Steven is such a handyman AND he taught me how to do laundry; I confess I do not know how to do laundry. 😳
God, bless every one of us!
