OR YOU TAKE A SHORT NAP
AND A LUNCH BREAK
WHAT DO YOU DO...
You are trying to replace your dream stove-this is the 3rd try-
The Delivery is in the store ready to be picked up.
It just happens to be the best day for the two sons in the same city to pick it up and deliver it to my house- an hour away.
I am getting excited-
Of course I'm not waiting to have them move things around in the breakfast room
I CAN DO THIS.
Grab a large thick bath towel and slip it under all fours legs of the pie safe type cabinet-
Slip that table in the breakfast room back about 12 inches
Remove the breakables and the scales hanging in the way
Not long now.
is DEFECTIVE-FROM THE FACTORY-Not damaged in transporting -
the third one I have been willing to accept as a replacement for MY perfect stove
[Okeefee & Merritt gas range from about 1950]
hit the PAUSE KEY...
Reset to: FLEXIBLE
Then just decide to LET IT GO!
FAST FORWARD TWO DAYS TO FRIDAY-
The dew is all gone from the grass in the yard -the perfect time to get that
YARD DONE TODAY
No problems with the mower-
The handy dandy son who can fix everything brought back the air compressor-repaired
All I have to do is put some more air in that front mower tire that keeps sharing it's air
with the outdoors I guess
Anyway it must have more air.
I'm ready to start being proud to get this yard in shape, looking good and be able to say:
I DID THAT!
Not so fast-
have key....that's all I have
IS IT A DEAD BATTERY?
NO SOUND, NOT EVEN A WHISPER WHEN I TURN THAT KEY IN THE IGNITION...
Not even a w h i s p e r-
We agree these things are usually some very simple problem right?
Not for ME!!
NOT TODAY-NOT THIS WEEK-
After touching base with the Mr. Fix It...wise counsel..
I CAME TO THIS CONCLUSION:
Sometimes it's just a good idea to stop and Take a little....
aND MAYBE A LUnCH BREaK!!
SOMETIMES referred to as having a hissy fit....
or threatening to run away from home...
or just plain
HIdING OUT IN THE MIddLE OF
D E N I A L..
If I just ignore this it will go away..
or Fix itself!
The lunch I ran away from home for
While in a state called DENIAL...didn't look like THIS..
It looked more like a BLT-toasted-add your own mayo
[white bread b/c we're out of whole wheat]
& Why did they butter this bread before toasting
[the ticket clearly read-no butter on bread-I checked]
And the Soup- Vegetable Soup that seemed a bit like
But that's okay-really
The French Fries looked like-uhhhhhhhhh
Actually there were none...even though it was clearly noted on the ticket-
But- that's okay too-
I didn't need to eat fries
Again I would have enjoyed it more if my
Water w/ Lemon
Had been mineral water-
can't have it if they don't have any.
I am not really this difficult and persnickety-
It's just on Wednesdays & Fridays
Everything crumbles apart.
Again that's not entirely a bad thing..
It gave me something to share with you & allow you to either feel sorry for me,
laugh at another old lady or just
Sit there shaking your head -bewildered and asking;
Why am I reading this?
