Thanks. I staggered off to bed for a while and managed to bite the crap out of my tongue. I am not having a good day.
i so know how that is. :(
thomas told me yesterday that he'd be glad when he moved out because then he wouldn't have to do chores anymore. LOLOLOLOL
being an adult has its suck times. :(
And Ferrett will be arriving here soon with his traumatized mouth and a prescription to be filled, so I will have to stop being sick and go to the pharmacy.
Whee fun. I'll take the chores!
my so and i discussed the fact, and he told me that when you live alone, the chores do themselves! ;)
that poor man. hug him for me.
Yeah, funny how that totally doesn't happen!
I will hug Ferrett for you.
Some days life kinda sucks, doesn't it?
Hang in there.
Any other time of year, you could save some serious money and change that dryer belt yourself. Sears has a really good manual about how to do it, and the parts are way less expensive than a repair visit. But you seem much too busy and stressed right now to attempt it yourself. Keep it in mind for future reference, though. It's a great manual, and it's so satisfying to do it yourself.
(Unless, of course, you have a home warranty service, in which case, never mind.)
Oh, no, no warranty. I wish we did, but it's about 12 years old.
No, what I meant was these companies, we have several around here, that repair some or all of your appliances, A/C, etc. for a yearly fee. I don't have one, at the present time, so that's why we attempted the repair on our own.
Ah, those! Used to have one, but it didn't pay off.
This year, it would....
That's insurance for ya. Overpriced until you need it. It's all a crap shoot.
If so inclined they could try to look up repair instructions online. That's what we'd do.
Believe me, so did we. But that's how we ended up with the book. Had to order parts anyway, so it worked out okay. Had the book right there beside the dryer. I don't know that we would have attempted anything more ambitious than changing the belt, but it sure felt good to get it working again, all by ourselves.
I feel you; November is NaNoWriMo, my birthday, Thanksgiving and time to prep for Christmas. On top of that, this year has the added stress of less money and my car slowly falling apart. I'm ready for it to be January....
I hate growing up and being all responsible. Taking care of problems instead of being able to ignore them, and thinking ahead to prepare for problems that haven't even happened yet. It totally sucks.
If it weren't for being able to drive, and the sex, I'd just have stayed a kid indefinitely.
I think I could have even lived without the driving!

Sounds like you had a really sucktastic day. I hope today's better.
Today is looking to be just as bad. If not slightly worse. But thank you for your good thoughts!
Wow--before I got to send this part of today resolved itself, so maybe it won't be so sucktacular after all.

I'll take the credit, then! :-)
You may! A couple things cleared up, so I'm getting a lot done.
I hope things go better tomorrow for you. I think part of the problem is that because of the Holidays we are "supposed" to be happy, jolly and kind even when for every one thing that goes great five more fall apart. Our bodies seem to know this and do a great job of making us slow down and be honest with ourselves and others about saying no sometimes.
I'm managing to catch up some. I don't feel like it's the holidays at all. It's very frustrating.
