Lauren vs. the Appliances

Ugh. Things are breaking all over around here. My microwave has a situation where it trips the circuit breaker every so often. It has happened so often that I’ve marked the switch on the breaker box with a sticker. It didn’t used to bother me, but lately it happens about every third use. I’ve taken to shouting/swearing when it happens. Oh well, it has served me well for 21 years and I guess it’s time for a new one.

My hair dryer died. The next-to-last time used it, it made a weird noise and I thought, “I should clean that out.” Well, this morning I used it and it made a short, weird sound, then got red hot inside and imediately started to smoke. Yikes! No actual fire, but dang.

    Your microwave is twenty-one years old? That’s from last century! I’d say you’ve gotten your money’s worth. Maybe the new one you get will have some cool new-fangled feature, like a digital clock instead of an analog one.

It’s pretty cold here. We spent a little time bringing balls inside and watching them expand in the warm air. Will this video work? IMG_2188

A cold, no phone, but Brad is ok

Lloyd and I both feel kinda yucky. I took a bunch of cold medicine, he didn’t, and we both sat on the sofa all day. Around noon I saw a Facebook notification about the missile situation in Hawaii. I wanted to call Brad but my phone is MIA. We Facetimed and I am extremely relieved […]
