Weekend wash

Sunday, February 10, 2013

This weekend was a wash. Or not.

I had every intention of having a successful weekend. Had meals planned. Exercise planned. Was good to go. Until this morning. We had a bad storm last night and our power went out at 4:20 am. It was out until noon. I had so much I needed to get done today and it all required electricity. So that is where the irritation began. Then the power came on and I sprang into action...only to find out that our washing machine is broken. I couldn't believe my luck. Irritation turned to anger. My husband was out fishing for the day so he wasn't available and with it being a Sunday, there really wasn't anything that could be done anyway because everything in our town is closed on Sunday. I watched some YouTube videos and took the front of the washing machine off so I could check the belt. It is in good shape so my dad thinks its the motor probably. From looking at estimates online, that appears to be the more expensive repair you can do on a washer.

Now I have a ton of dirty laundry, some of which reeks in fish guts, and no working washer. With all of the inconveniences, I ate terribly to comfort and calm the irritation. I fought it all day. At 4, I lost. I was doing so good too! Oh well, tomorrow will be better.

On top of that stuff, I have been stressing about a medical concern lately. It is weighing heavier on my mind over the last week or so, so I think I am going to try to get into the doctor this week, even if it is just to put my mind at ease. It may be nothing. I'll feel much better having it checked out.

The positive that I can report is that since Tuesday I have done at least 20 minutes of exercise every day! I went for a good jog this morning. I needed it. It was great. I was hoping the power would be back on when I made it back...it wasn't, but the jog was still good! I love jogging.

    Sometimes those exercise minutes do help. I am restricted to walking, but glad to be able to do at least that. Hang in there, things will look up!

    Good work understanding what went well and what needs more work. It is a continual process.
