1. I have had Tummy problems
2. We had a fire.
3. Our dryer doesn't work
4. An important check is lost in the mail.
5. Flu Shots
I have had tummy problems all week. I think I am getting better and then something I eat sets it off again.
Tues night when I was on Spark people, DH called,"I have a fire out here" from the kitchen. I ran with my trusty water mug and then realized it was an electrical fire. There was a spark when he tried to turn on a circuit breaker that had cut off, it sparked and caught the dryer hose vent on fire. He told me to call 911, but I picked up a cloth, wet it and he was able to smother the fire.
After DS installed a new hose and I gladly turned the dryer on. It ran 30 seconds and tripped the fuse again. So I have clothes hanging around everywhere to dry.
Earlier, I wrote about our $127. lunch. It involved a speeding ticket. So DH wrote a check to the nearby town for his fine and it never arrived in the mail. Strange thing, we had an argument about taking it over and I said "don't be silly, that is 22 mi. through the same small town where you were speeding,just mail it". Oops, so much for that piece of advice. Now he has an additional late fee or a court appearance!
Well do we deserve something nice for a change. OK. My brother had sent us a check and we decided to go to lunch with it. Usually we hit the Bob Evans nearest us, but decided to go to the one in the other end of town. In passing the Sr. Center, we saw that they were giving flu shots. We had missed the first ones and our Dr. and Cardiologist were both out of the medicine. They didn't know where we could get one. (One phone call was this morning). So..had we not gone to the other end of town for lunch, we would not have had a flu shot this season.
So maybe four bads and one good is par for our lives. But I really feel it was one strange week!
