When life is messy...
Well, I'm always finding that life is far from perfect and instead of writing today I went to the laundromat to dry my clothes (the dryer broke last week and we have not installed the clothesline outside, yet) while a sink full of dishes from two days soaked in sudsy water to do when I arrived home.
I'd asked Hubby to pick up a half gallon of milk, butter, and eggs when he went to the grocery store yesterday. He came home with everything but those three. Usually that type of thing would make one roll their eyes and mumble something about "men" but in his case I knew it meant he had forgotten two conversations in which we talked about these three items... so he had been working far too hard recently!
But we are also thankful for the handy man jobs that came in after two expensive car repairs. Things break down in this most fallen of all worlds including one's memory.
So... in between drying the clothes and doing the dishes, I stopped by Kroger for the much needed items. No veggies were on clearance but a package of three heads of romaine lettuce was only $1.99 so it joined the others in the cart.
I will see if I can find out what the red, white, and blue flowers are called. They were purchased "as is" on a special pre-Memorial day price at Menard's. Their version of a patriotic flower arrangement.
You wouldn't want to see them right now. With one storm after another this week, some of my deck flowers look like they have been through a war... and in a way they have! I'm sure they will blossom again once we have nice weather.
Oh, I'll still be here even after the Google Reader is gone for it does not affect the blog at all. Except I'm sure I will lose some of the nearly 800 subscribers who, like me, are not transferring all of the blogs they read in one lump sum.
The dinner dishes are soaking and Hubby needs his computer. But I'm happy to check in again, even if to whine about the obvious... life is messy!
