Last Sunday our washer broke down. Our friend and neighbor Paul came over to help us figure out the problem. The pump and the motor were still working, so they decided it was the timer. Corby called around on Monday pricing them, and then we checked online. The cheapest timer we could find was $185. We decided not to put that much money into a 12-year-old washer, so...
out with the old
and in with the new
I haven't even used it yet. We bought it at Lowe's on Tuesday night and it was delivered for free on Thursday night. They even hauled off the old one. Thank goodness! Tomorrow will be spent catching up on laundry.
Muffin enjoyed watching leaves blow around this week.
We certainly had enough days of ferocious wind! I am SO sick of it. Kansas has always been windy, but days on end of 30-50mph winds is really tiresome.
Today I took mom out for a drive and lunch. We drove past North High and then went downtown. I showed her the corner where Buck's used to be (Broadway & Douglas - now the Bank of America building); the new arena; the state office building where my older brother works; the Eagle; the Delano District and Old Town. We ate lunch at The Beacon, a little diner just east of the Eagle. We had half orders of biscuits and gravy. Mom ate about 2/3 of hers. We stopped at Dollar General but didn't have luck finding any goodies there. She really enjoyed the outing.
Corby and I did our grocery shopping when I got home (he had to work this morning). We bought some flat iron steak for grilling tomorrow.
Now I'm trying to clean off my desk, uncover the bills and get them paid, and catch up on e-mail, Facebook and Twitter.
