Let's Call It a Stupid Day

June 2nd, 2015 at 05:33 pm

I'm not quite sure what was going on with me yesterday, but all sorts of minor things just went wrong. DD and I heard a clunk yesterday morning, but I could find nothing that fell off anywhere. Later in the afternoon I went downstairs carrying too much--the bread machine and two laundry baskets, missed the bottom step and wrenched my ankle. Then I discovered what clunked--a brand new giant bottle of laundry detergent had fallen off the dryer top, split and spilled all over the floor.
After getting that cleaned up and muttering up soap dollars down the drain, I hobbled back upstairs and needed a shower to get all the soap residue off, promptly breaking off the shower head.

So--$25 for a new shower head, $20 worth of detergent gone, a slightly swollen ankle, and a really cranky self.

Thankfully my evening class went very well, DH got a new shower head, and things seem less precarious today.

In other financial news, I set up DD's Washington trip account and paid the first $99 on it.

    Ugh! Sorry to hear about all of that. It's always harder to take little things when they all pile on at once. I've had days at work like that

    Why are some days like that? So sorry. I sure hope the ankle heals fast.

    OMG! That's enough to send me to the patio with a book! Anything to escape reality and get a jolt of warm sun on my back. Since it's 1,2,3...surely the remainder of summer will go smoothly.

    With DH away, I'm always amazed at how little housework is necessary. I usually make a pot of rice and meals are all those plan-overs like Spanish rice, Pilaf, Paella, Porcupines, Stir fry, soup, salad, Stuffed sweet pepper, TexMex, Thai, Jamaican etc. at whatever time I choose.

    Oh my goodness, what a day! Watch that ankle. Ankles are very tricky mechanisms; get it checked out if the swelling doesn't go down.

    Three ibuprofen and my ankle is almost normal if still a little too blue for my taste. I like snafu's menus.
