Soaking your ass cheeks inside your beginning to bag cotton granny panties to really make you appreciate just how frakking hot, humid and nasty the evening really is.
When we headed out to the lake, tonight it was still in the nineties and so humid I swear I wanted to wring my hair out. No lovely, cooling rain and wind today. Just sun, heat and heavy, oppressive air. Rather than letting it bother me and make me miserable, I remembered something I read in Draz's blog and I invited the heat and humidity to walk with me. To warm me and make me sweat. It did as invited. lol
I am beginning to feel a little beat up and I am going to need a rest day, pretty soon. I'll take one when I need it. I am not going to let my calendar dictate what my bod needs. :D
I was almost halfway tempted to shine on tonight's walk but I knew I had to go. I needed to burn off the 200 calories worth of BBQ chips I decided to nosh on then the extra handful of almonds that followed the chips. I paid for the almonds. I keep forgetting that with my gallbladder, nuts don't make me insides happy. Need to remember that and lay off the nuts.
After a great deal of frustration and repeated attempts to get through to a living human being on the convoluted, frustrating sucking void that is Sears automated phone system thingy, I finally called a local appliance dealer and repair place (a Maytag place) that has a rep for carrying parts for a wide variety of brands and angel choirs singing in the background as the very friendly and helpful lady on the line (yes!!! An actual, live person!!!) informed me that they do, indeed carry the heating element that my dryer needed and even better, had it in stock. Husband ran down and picked it up. The gal that worked there had already gone and brought it up tot he front so it was all ready to go when he got there. So, after spending $62.00 and a little time with Husband huddled behind my dryer, I am happily fluffing and folding, once again. :D
I will never attempt to get a part for anything from Sears, again. They make it too fucking difficult and don't seem to give a rat's ass about their customers. Well, fine, I no longer give a rat's ass about contributing to their bottom line. I am not boycotting Sears but I will choose to shop elsewhere unless they are running a screaming sale. And I have coupons. And whatever I buy will never, ever, ever require any service of any kind.
It is amazing how much crud accumulates behind a dryer. When Husband pulled it out, under and behind the dryer was lint, dirt, dust, dog food, cat litter and a spider. All of the crud got swept up and the spider got sent to his final reward. I am happy to have it all cleaned up back there. Now to get him to pull out and clean behind and under my washer... :p
I was kind of hoping that a new pair of walking shoes would become mine, this week. Oh well. My old ones still have a few miles left in them. And I really needed that heating element. I can't have a clothes line, here so I depend on my dryer.
I grilled chicken and summer squash for dinner. It was of nom, nom, nom. I a snacking on ripe, red, sweet cherries, right now.
Stupid bugs, anyway! We have more bugs, this Summer than last year. Blech!
