did i mention that our dryer died? well it did, and i recycled it (got a whole $4 for it!) and the search for a new (used) one, began. to make a long story short, i did my research and found some used ones…but…salvation army didn’t have any electric dryers, only gas…we don’t have hookup for that…and a used place i visited had used, but they were half the price of new, but 10 times as old! so we went with new. *sigh* there goes $400. i didn’t have the time or energy (in this heat, with these cranky kids) to do more work to find something cheaper.
then it was supposed to be delivered today…which is a week after it died (and laundry started piling up, just before tyr’s party, ugh!) but got a call yesterday that its not in yet and won’t be delivered til fri or sat now. UGH.
so my parents kindly offered to let me do laundry at their house. actually this was a nice solution because now the kids have cable on-demand to watch to entertain them while i get this laundry done. and obviously, i have access to the internet so i’m happy, LOL!!
its another hot, red (worst) air day. so i didn’t want to do anything outside or spend much time going places.
yesterday, another red air day, 107degrees! we went to the met, to the central library (one we hadn’t gone to for a long time, so it was a new thing for the kids), and then to friends later. usually wed was our swimming day but because of the bad air warnings, i told the kids they had to play inside. well at least they got play time. then adam got paid yesterday so we went home around 6pm and picked him up and went out to deposit his check and get dinner. i was NOT dealing with dinner in that heat, and with very little food at home.
tonight i must go grocery shopping, ugh. oh! but i can plot out my menu here, because i have an account at recipezaar (site no longer exists) and can access, yay!
anyway, my head hurts too cuz i appear to have woken up with another migraine. luckily its pretty minor.
the next question is what the heck do i do with my kids when they lose interest in nana and bompa’s house/tv.
well i best get back to the laundry. i think i can fold the first load.
