WOOO- HOOO!

This should be put in the happy vent section.
I've got Sweet Lady Luck on my side today. Dr's office called. My appointment has been changed to next week.

Now I can change.Wipe the war paint off my face and get back to finishing up my sewing table.

Maybe I should buy a Lotto ticket. Bet on the track and see how the rest of my day goes.

Munky.

The downstairs toilet won't flush, because the tank won't fill. The flapper is old and wrinkly. I bought a new flapper, but that hasn't fixed the problem. I bought a case of beer. Stirling was too tired to bring the case in from the car and up the stairs, so I grabbed four of them. I dropped one in the hallway to my basement door. I mopped it up. I picked up and swept glass. I washed the beer spot to get rid of the beer smell. I stepped on glass. I had two teensy, tiny, little pieces of glass in my foot and it was a bugger to get them out. Heck, it was hard to find them. I have air conditioning, but it isn't really keeping up with the heat. It's definitely hotter outside, but it's not wonderfully comfortable inside.

Okay, enough crabbing for now. I feel better.

Okay, I thought of a good vent!

NOTHING is sold in glass quart jars anymore. They are all plastic. The only glass jars are for pickles and they are 24 ounces or 48 ounces, not 32. And I don't trust the plastic enough to try to make it sterile.

I lie, I found a jar of local made BBQ sauce in a qt jar...for $9.99...the case of Ball Qt jars was $9.44. I got the case of Ball jars. Anyone need 10 new Qt Ball jars with lids???

Lol I was thinking as I started reading your post, "Can't you just buy quart jars?" but you beat me to it.

I feel like a prisoner!!! I came to St. Cloud about a week before I'm able to start work, so while my bf is at work I have nothing to do! Laundry is done, house is clean, we don't have any extra money I could use to entertain myself (since I'm not working...) and I don't know anyone here. Hm. 8 1/2 hrs til bf comes home and I'm already bored. Maybe I'll go disc golfing by myself...

Just wondering. How are you doing with all the flooding up your way?

Well, no one in my family was really affected too much, so I haven't heard as much as I would have liked, but I actually moved to St. Cloud the day before it happened. The water is receding, but of course everyone is going to have to deal with all the damage caused by the floods. One blessing is that it should drain off fairly quickly since Duluth is sort of built on a hill.
