I don't know if I said or not, but a key broke in a lock, a padlock. The locksmith will charge me between $75 and $100, depending on how much they do and how long it takes.
My tweezers did not work to pull the key out. Bolt cutters cost $50. Maybe my needle-nose pliers will work. I saw a neighbor getting his mail and , yes, he does have bolt cutters. So, tomorrow he will try to get the lock off.
The problem is this is one of those round locks that resist being cut off. He has lots of tools, so maybe he can bring several to get the lock off.
I had to make about a dozen trips from the car to the house, carrying things large and small, heavy and light. So, I was exhausted. Exbf was always so good about helping me by carrying things, but today he could not.
We ate at Arby's today with a coupon for $2.99 Grand Turkey Club. I love those! We got the 50 cent cokes from a certain machine and ate in the shade with the windows down. It was pleasant with blue skies and clouds blowing along.
After all my walking to and from the car, he got a salad for dinner. The carrots and potatoes went home with him. although he had chicken on his salad, I meant to send some home with him. Soooo, that will be frozen for him. I was too tired to fix a meal at lunch or heat stuff already cooked for dinner. Ugh! Well, it was less than $7, and we rarely eat out.
A nap was whispering in my ear, so two hours later, I had no desire to cook or do anything. The nap was good, but I was still tired. He left late to go home. After a trip to WM to get a few things, I am holding down the bed! There are bags from WM that will get carried in tomorrow. Only the ice cream was brought inside. Oops! I suppose I must go back and get the fruit! sigh
Dominique gave me an egg today. YAY! Maybe by Sunday morning, I can have scrambled eggs for breakfast. There are two store-bought eggs in the refrigerator, but I want to use those for cooking something.
Where are my grey pants stored over the winter? Beats me, but I looked frantically and finally found one grey pair to wear on this very warm day. Everything stored is in one place, except for grey pants. ???
I hung clothes on the line at 4:30 pm and forget to bring them in! Yes, it has been a frazzled Friday.
I awoke this morning to dried out carrot tops, so had to water those and keep my fingers crossed. One of the sweet potatoes in water was covered in white moldy stuff, so that was tossed. The aloe has not died.
Although I accomplished enough, things just did not go well on many fronts, many little annoyances!
However, at the end of the day it was a very good day.
Even on a good day do you ever find things are not as simple or easy as they could be? Have you had a frazzled day lately?
