Then, I tried to make a pot of coffee, like I do EVERY morning, and .... I waited FIVE HOURS. I unplugged and replugged, pressed buttons frantically, and cried, all to no avail. I finally gave up and pouted, only to hear it kick on hours later and S-L-O-W-L-Y start brewing. Not helpful.
Just when I thought nothing else could fall apart that day, I grabbed the upstairs laundry basket to take downstairs. As I reached in to pull out the laundry, I saw THIS:
Yes, a metal pokey-thing that tried to KILL me. I told Jeremy we needed to fix it IMMEDIATELY, because what if Josephine pulled the laundry basket over onto herself and the metal thing poked out her eye?!?!?!!?!!
Well, here's the good news: I bought a new hot glue gun (it's pink!), Jeremy fixed the laundry basket, AND I had a physical yesterday, and the doctor said I was in EXCELLENT physical condition*. I know that's totally unrelated, but the coffee maker isn't fixed yet, and my body is one thing that apparently is NOT falling apart in this crap-shack.
*Apparently he chose to ignore the state of my stomach. He's quite a guy, that doctor. Also, ALSO, he did NOT tell me that I was a bit over my ideal body weight, so SUCK ON THAT, old doctor!!!! Yeah, you wanna know why? Oh, just because my blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose are all STELLAR. So, you know, I'm healthy even though I weigh more than 140 pounds. GASP. Is that possible? YES, yes it is.
Now I don't know how to end this. I've gone slightly off-track. Am I right? Ha. HA HA. Okay, so laughing didn't fix it. Or give me an idea. Crap. I thought it might distract you and I could just duck out. Nope? Okay. How about this? Leave me a comment and tell me one of the following:
1. Are things falling apart at your house too?
2. Did you recently fix something you are really proud of?
3. Did you recently get good news that you wanted to shove in a medical health professional's face?
4. Do you want to comment on my lack of focus? (Well, DON'T)
And there you have it. Interaction. Everyone loves that. Comment away!
