No card today. But funny evening for me. So, my washer's been acting up for about 6 months at least. There's been some issues with the piece that gets pushed down from the lid, that more or less controls the timer changes. I've been able to work around it by pushing on the lid in a certain spot, and stuff like that. Sept it got a little more ornery, but I figured Congress is gonna get that Rebates for old appliances up, so I'll get a new one than. Never wait on Congress....right? Well, it got really bad this past week, where I was able to rig it with a screwdriver down the hold, and put the lid down to keep the screwdriver in place. This worked well on Sunday, got all my loads done. Today, it won't work. I've got a few loads to do, and no luck. I had to start standing over the washer, holding the screwdriver down to get the cycles to work. Than my last load of the day, I go to put the screwdriver in, and bam, the flipping piece breaks off. Now, the washer is stuck totally full of water, with 4 throw blankets, just sitting waiting to go to the next cycle.
Here we stop for a moment, because small story in between this one. Maxwell, the 6 month old puppy, and Precious, the 14 year old cranky cat, are coming together in my bedroom. My butt is by the washer in front of my room. I keep telling him to leave it, and she's hissing like a wild cat at him. He's doppy, innocent doggie, not wanting to hurt her. Keeps going up to her. She's aggressive towards him. She freaking made him pee! Scared the pee out of the boy! Sigh! She's got no claws, and is missing teeth. Really, what can she do to you?!
Get that cleaned up, go back to the washer situation. Meanwhile dinner is started. I stick my finger up the little hole, under the metal frame. Dang it, I got shocked! Really?! How funny is that?!
Moral of my story, don't let the cat and the dog make friends cuz you've got your finger up a hole that'll shock you! And please, be careful not to burn the dinner!
Life is good!
