Sometimes It Doesn't Pay To Get Out Of Bed

I didn't sleep well last night and decided to just get up a little early. I wanted to make bagels today. Something I hadn't done in a couple of months as I wanted to take a break.

I keep my KA mixer in a cabinet in the half bath/laundry room off the kitchen. I carried it out and started the process. Kneaded the dough and set it aside to rise.

While that was happening, I cleaned off the mixer and carried it back into the bathroom to put it away. I set the mixer on the vanity and turned to open the doors so I could just move the mixer right in. As I turned, I nudged the mixer just enough to tip it.

It fell head first into the toilet, submerging the front of the mixer in the water and shattering the toilet base.

I called a friend who is a plumber and he sent me to a local plumbing supply to pick out a fixture. He'll put it in tomorrow.

I'll deal with the mixer later.

Sorry to hear about your dificulties, Andy. That Murphy seems to always be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

I hope it didn't make too much of a mess in your bathroom.

Thanks. Not much of a mess. The fixture is still holding water. I just have to deal with the expense of the fixture replacement and I still don't know if the mixer is OK.

I hope you have another bathroom. Looks like Murphy has it out for you today. I hope your KA is okay.

It took almost 30 months for my left frozen shoulder to heal and regain almost all range of motion in my arm. That was almost 2 years ago. Now I've injured my right shoulder several weeks ago, over-reaching, trying to retrieve my hanging bicycle from the garage rafter. That shoulder has been going through it's freezing process, slowly limiting my range of motion. I've been trying to counteract this by forced stretching but it's pretty painful. I have a feeling I'm going to have to go through this entire shoulder "thawing" process all over again. Man, I hate getting old.

Thanks, ladies. We have another bathroom so that's not an issue. I'll just have to be running up and down stairs all day to use it.

I'm letting the KA dry for a bit before I turn it on.

That's a heck of a way to get more exercise.

My petty little vent is that I totally forgot to put baking soda in my oatmeal rhubarb loaf. BAH! It won't make a HUGE difference, but it will make some difference.
