I’m officially on vacation. I slept eight hours last night. Two things that warrant applause, please. I haven’t slept eight full hours in a while. Good thing, too; I have lots going on this week.
Speaking of this week…
Two appliances are scheduled to be delivered. Does anyone else hate spending money on appliances? I would rather go on a genuine vacation somewhere exciting. My appliances still work, but are on their last mechanical leg.
I’m being real here when I say that I doubt the installation and hook-up will go smoothly since my house is old AND the last time I bought a refrigerator was 1988 and dishwasher 1984. I had to pay more for the frig (than I had budgeted) just to get it to (hopefully) go (please) inside the existing cabinet opening.
Now since I try to not let one day go by without applying Murphy’s Law to my life, I imagine tomorrow will supply many surprises of which I will melt down over. Just warning you.
Grim Tales of the Ruralhood (potential eBook) is with a couple readers. I’d really like to find one more reader.
I finally had to write myself a letter AND send an email to encourage me to stop revising and get it out to the readers. I was a little obsessed. Sometimes you’ve got to let it go in order to go on. You can quote me on that.
There’s a psycho-thriller movie that I really like, that I think is brilliant, and it kept me guessing to the very end. I pride myself on figuring out who did it or ‘untwist” the twisted ending when I read a book or watch a movie. To see for myself what makes this movie tick, I started dissecting the movie last Friday keeping track of scenes, clues, red herrings, plot points and so on. It’s taking me some time. I'm learning from the process.
Over the weekend, my brother and his family were in from a foreign country—Illinois.
That'll be all, folks.
Your questions: Will my new appliances last as long as the last ones? Say yes. Do you have a movie or book that you think is brilliant? Have you ever been to the foreign land of Illinois?
