I’m really sore all over. Part of it is from trying to hoist Vicki after she slid off the shower bench, naked, wet, slick and shrieking her guts out like a banshee. It took a long time trying to lift by myself then Michael eventually came and helped me. She was fine. So that hurt my lower back but I hurt all over from all the water aerobics I did Monday and Tuesday. I feel like somebody beat me with a baseball bat.
The soup turned out well. Very hearty and tasty. I have 4 quart jars full left. I put all the Christmas sweets in the freezer. We don’t need them sitting around. We’re going out to run some errands in a little while. We’ve been doing some housework. Mike took today off as he had many vacation day left that needed to be used.
Yesterday when I got back home from taking Vicki home to Peoria, I put the comforter from the spare room in the washer and didn’t think a thing of it. There was no unusual noise when it was running. A little while later I went in the laundry room to discover the floor was flooded. Two big rugs were sopping wet. I had to use about twelve big towels to clean it up but I didn’t do a very thorough job. I was too tired so we cleaned it up today and put things back in order. The washer is working okay today.
I am happy with our new smaller house and yard. It took some getting used to but I like it. As we get older we’ll be so happy with our move and very little yard work to do. There are tons of classes, events, shows, clubs and activities here. Everyone is so damned friendly. I feel lucky we live here in Huntley Sun City. The whole community is kept so beautifully decorated and pristine.
