The appliance repair man came this morning and a couple of hundred dollars later,
we shall have ice. I think I would have spent less money and pulled out the ice cube trays that
are surely somewhere in the basement, but Farmer Dad does like plenty of ice on the door.
It just feels like all the money is going out right now and not much coming in.....oh well.
This too shall pass.I've been told by a couple of tree people that the rest of our tree will not fall
down anytime soon, so we shall leave it until the "busy season" prices go down.
Hopefully the tire place will have a Labor Day sale so we can get new tires for his truck, and we shall
get over this hurdle. Can you see me sweating about this from there?
The good news is, I just heard ice falling into the ice holder, so it must be working.
Haven't heard that for a while around here.
Maybe I'll make a Margarita with crushed ice later to celebrate.
It was probably worth it to have a big strong man pull the whole thing out from the wall
so I could clean it real well. It's that time of the year anyway.
I did escape for a bit last night to hit our library for some new books. I returned two huge bags
full of books and one of cds. I only carried one bag home with two cds in my purse, so it was very light.
Princess was flipping out because Farmer Dad would not bring her to her friends house to play.
Friday, she flipped when it was time to go home, and he wouldn't take her back because of it.
She calmed down after we ignored her for a bit and we went downstairs to play skeeball.
Then we read our new books and she played with her blocks. I still have not found the other box,
but the small bag is keeping her happy for now. It was a long night, she rarely goes down easy once she hits "fit" mode. I would think it would make her more tired, but it almost always backfires.
She has been busy playing with her magnetic letters and some "Dawn" dolls we got last year at a "free for all".
Did anyone else out there have them as a child? I loved mine.I would not let her play with them at first, she was being a bit ruff for my liking, but I pulled out the case this morning and she has played nicely almost all morning.
