They call me Mrs. Fixit

Standard

Or at least they should.

I just had an awful day yesterday..so when I got up this morning, I bounded out of bed determined to have a better day today.
Guess what.
nope.
I got up and watched some t.v….then I remembered that my buddie wasn’t going to be online today..so I give her a call, make some coffee…and then while I was talking to her…decide to stick a load of wash in the dryer..turn it on and hear…
GRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKKKK
well.
something like that anyway.
Jaime asks if I’m grinding more coffee.
nope.
that’s my dryer.
I could have just cried.
But Jaime distracted me…we talked about my big butt..more about that later…
So after I get off the phone…I decide to pull that sucker out and see if I can fix it.
Well, after many cut knuckles, lots of sweeping, and plenty of cussing…I manage to get the back cover off and take off the chute for the lint.
(hey..that’s where the noise was coming from!)
Turns out my DARLING baby boy (whom, it just so happens, swallowed a marble last night…still no sign of it) decided to stick two pencils and one of daddy’s sockets down the chute.
yippie
what fun.
Turns out pencils will jam up fans and make dryers make awful sounds! Who knew?
So…call me Mrs. Fixit…I fixed it.
Now…about my big butt….
Jaime has started this workout program (hooray jaime!)
Well, I guess it’s easier if two people do it together..so she has convinced me to join in with her.
I’m excited now, but ask me how I feel about it on thursday morning after that mile walk!!!
Oh..and one other thing.
I have picked a date.
I’m going to quit smoking!
April 30th is my last day.
Sounds corny…and I’m sure ya’ll are like “who cares?” right???
Well…I figure if I post it here…all of you will yell at me if I screw up right???
Yeah.
I need that support.
So wish me luck!!!
Heck, if I can fix a dryer…I am certain quitting smoking is something I can do right???
right?
