More Saturday stuff

So, enough stuff happened on Saturday that I can look like life is more interesting than it really is. One of Lloyd’s auction buddies owns a thrift store and we stopped there on the way home. We felt obligated to buy something, so I bought…. a GT Exprxess 101!

I used it that night to make tater tots.

It was not as magically quick as the commercial would lead you to believe, but they were still good.

Also, earlier in the day I had to swing by my eye doctor for some drops. Afterward, I drove around the building. I was in Sam’s van, which he loaned us for hauling auction stuff. This is a critical detail for the humiliation to follow. I was in the back parking lot and drove through a nifty little archway exit:

As I exited onto….the sidewalk….and realized that there was a curb ahead…and parking spaces…. it dawned on me that I had used a pedestrian archway. No problem. I just backed up slowly IN THE GIANT VAN back to the parking lot.

Oh, the humiliation…..

    Thanks for sharing your humiliation. It made me laugh 🙂

    Maybe you could have just told someone you were there for a delivery and the store said you should drive up on the sidewalk…

The toilet is fixed! The toilet is fixed!

I fixed the toilet! We now have two flushing toilets in the house! Huzzah! Huzzah! I was going to work on the situation on Saturday after buying the toilet guts, but discovered that the shut-off valve doesn’t completely turn off the water. I hemmed and hawed about it and then called Brad. “Just work fast,” […]

Super Sunday

0D15CC2C-9CF0-439B-8914-E9DE0AEB4042

It was a good Sunday. After church we had a fairly speedy trip through Wal*Mart because Lloyd was hungry. Back home, we ate lunch and then I was super-productive while Lloyd took a nap. I did the laundry, made a lasagna and cooked up five pounds of hamburger. This has been a meal-saving strategy for […]

Huh.

Some days you learn more things than others. The washing machine at school has been leaking, so our director called her husband (who is still back in Illinois) and he talked us through taking it apart. I ran it through a cycle but the leak appears to have stopped for now. It’s a puzzler,

Plenty cold

Well, it is plenty cold here. Fortunately, the wind chill will be above zero by 10:30,so my kids can go outside and scream in the wind like they so desperately need to do. I, for one, am tired. No good reason, just the tired of a preschool teacher in winter with cooped-up kids. Sorry these […]
