I feel worse today than I did yesterday! I was going to ask Jo to come over tomorrow, but the way I feel it’s a bad idea. This bug has knocked me on my butt. I hate the feverish part too! One second I’m shivering like an ice cube, the next I’m dripping with sweat and then come the cold sweats -they’re probably the worst! Yuck! I’m coughing up green goop and I feel horrible or, as my hubby loves to say when he’s sick, “I feel like a bag of smashed up assholes!!” I’ve never actually said that, but I smile every time he does! So, surprisingly I’m sure, I did absolutely nothing today. I accomplished nothing, went no where, I just did nothing. Oh! I played with my son after school. So that’s a bit more than nothing, I guess. Sure feels like a whole lot of nothing to me!!
My hubby did all of the chauffeuring, as he usually does. He also fixed the dryer, hopefully, he’s doing a test run right now! It almost caught on fire and could have burned the house down! It was Saturday and our oldest was drying blankets. We were literally about to go out the door to my mom and dad’s when we heard a really loud beeping sound. We finally figured out that it was coming from the laundry room (good to know that the smoke detector that my dad put in works!!) The dryer was smoking and it was already pooling at the ceiling (the smoke). We immediately made sure it was off and my hubby turned off the breaker. The dryer was sooooo hot to touch, anywhere on it! We’re pretty lucky that we caught it, because once my hubby pulled it apart and looked inside (later on) he found clumps and clumps of burnt, black lint! The hose was plugged with lint. It was awful!! We’re damn lucky that the smoke detector works! And that, with all our junk everywhere, nothing else caught on fire!! Scary! And, now he fixed it today. It looks like it will vent better and instead of only one of those twisty metal/plastic vents being the only thing, we now have a metal pipe and only a bit of the bendy stuff, wherever it’s necessary! Hopefully it works.
I think I’m going to stop rambling about our burnt dryer and go to bed. I’m tired and it’s already past 11:30 and I wanted to go to bed early! Oops! Well, it’s better than 1:00 I guess.
