This last month has gone so fast. And I'm happy to say...I'm actually doing something constructive today. I'm cleaning my non self cleaning oven. I hate to do that because the stuff you spray in there smells so bad. They even have the nerve to put the words "fume free" on the can. I almost passed out from the smell so how can they say it's fume free. Apparently, the manufacturers of this stuff have totally lost their sense of smell. Anyway, it's the type where you spray the cold oven, then wait two hours and then wipe it down with a damp cloth, sponge or paper towels. I did this about 11:30am so my break is almost up.
I was thrilled to see some retirement $$ in my checking account this morning. I don't think it was as much as I was expecting but maybe it will change next month...do you think that's possible?
I got many wonderful retirement gifts and I'm truly thankful for them all. But there's one that stands out because I use it every day. It's pictured above...it's a "Day Clock." What a great idea for someone who has no set schedule. My friends Judy and Phil gave it to me...and since they have both retired recently, I'm sure they understand the day by day challenge of keeping up with what day it is.
My son got off work early today so showed up to do a load of laundry. Right now he's asleep in the recliner. He has to be to work at 6am, so I'm sure he was up early this morning. Guys are funny...he washes everything in one load...jeans, underwear, t- shirts...he just throws it all in. I have all these little piles; dark stuff, towels, light weight permanent press stuff, etc. And then each pile gets dried separately because they all take different heat settings, etc. He threw everything in the dryer together. It makes me crazy but I need to remember he's not a little boy anymore. I need to remember "my place."
Well, I'm going to go finish the oven cleaning. This is the really icky part...spraying the stuff is nothing.
Until next time, Linda
