Monday Musings

When it's 90 degrees outside, you'd rather it be less than 91 degrees inside your office. Considerably less.

When you fill up your car, spend over $50 doing it, and THEN gas drops in price you can whine. But, only to yourself.

You should never take the dog out to potty when you don't have on any shoes. When you drop the leash and she takes off, it is really hard to chase her. Ouch... ouch... ouch.

Speaking of going out, you should always, always, ALWAYS check for spiders on the sliding glass door before you assume there aren't any. Especially if it's 11:00 PM, the front door is locked, and you notice the HUGE spider on the door handle as you're reaching to come back in. And, Ron is in his recliner and not his wheelchair. And, you don't have on any shoes. And, to top it all off, you don't have ANY spider spray. Walking around the house barefoot, and in the dark, is much preferred over trying to get in past the spider without letting it in as well. Got Ron to open the front door and let me in. I got the only spray I could find (Scrubbing Bubbles), put on my shoes, and went back out the front door and around to the back. Sprayed the spider with the bathroom cleaner, which made him drop to the ground and I put him out of our misery. (Notice a pattern of me going outside without shoes? Yeah, me too. I really shouldn't be doing that.)

You should never wait until Monday morning to discover that the clothes you put into the dryer on Saturday didn't get dry. Something about pushing that "start" button...

You should never take your diuretic pill when you have a 45 mile drive to work. Definitely not. Makes for a very long drive.

I want to leave a comment but I have to write all those pieces of advice down. I don't have a pen. Wait. Oh. no paper. Okay. I really enjoyed this, but I have to go check the dryer from Saturday now. Seriously. I do.

Dear Teresa,
Oh, I am sorry that I couldn't figure out the situation about the sipider story part well(^^;) Ours don't have poison here in Japan.
But I understood the last one clearly.

PS> service went smoothly and feeling relieved, load off my mind now.

Love and lots of Hugs to you, my friend, Orchid*
