I'm counting my blessings that I am in such good health. Or at least good enough health that I don't let the little things get to me.

Other than that, I aint doin' a thing! lol. Watching it snow I guess.

Waiting for the electrician to come and disconnect my garbage disposal.

The notice from the apartment complex made me chuckle, disconnecting the garbage disposal is in preparation for a future enhancement.

I think the truth is that the old drains suffer from arteriosclerosis and they want to minimize the amount of sludge that is put into them, we'll see.

That could be tough to get used to, Bea. Especially if you use it a lot.
I don't use mine nearly as much as I used to. Mostly for rinsing plates... which rarely have anything worthy of grinding on them anyway

I like to run it once or twice a week with a few ice cubes in it to flush out the sludge that accumulates from doing dishes, it begins to smell especially in the summer.

All he is going to do is remove the switch on the kitchen wall and put a plate over it. The garbage disposal will still have power, it might be possible to...

That, IMO, is not going to work. At least it doesn't work in my house.
Even when I don't use the disposal for a while I still need to turn it on for a few seconds because small particles clog it and slow the drain down. It's not like having a regular drain under the sink.
Time will tell.

Since I learned that the sink drain, specially if there is a disposal in there, is a great breeding place for fruit flies, I now make sure that I run it at least once a day. Even if I haven't tossed anything in it. No fruit flies!

I was taking a small nap and the door bell rudely woke me right up. I jumped up and took one step. Had to sit down and wait until I was fully awake. My legs were not that steady. I tend to forget that it takes about four minutes before my visitor gets up to the second floor and my door. And my delivery man always rings my doorbell twice. They know it takes a lot of the residents time to get to the release so they can get in. It was my medicines being delivered for next week.

Gee, since The Pirate cleaned my apartment so well, I have nothing to do. I guess I will work on my sewing.

I woke up to a phone-call from my co-coordinator for meals at our church. She got calls from four families yesterday wanting to make meals for us. Now usually it is us who call people on our list to provide meals for needy members. But these people wanted to help us out.

I can't eat a lot right now and TB has a lot of restrictions, but for the next 4 days we don't have to make dinner! What a great present!

I am curled up in my new electronic blanket in my chair with a cup of hot lemon and a piece of toasted banana bread. I am watching the second Santa Clause movie. Pain? manageable!

Yay, Laurie! So glad you have Santa's little helpers to help you out and that you're feeling better

Eek. I just notice there is no Thursday night football tonight I don't often get to watch Th nite football. It's the Idea now becomes a void. Also no Monday night next week. The whole sh'bang for the whole year is on sunday. A couple college bowl games, I forget which teams and I just looked.

I also had to go look under my sink to see if my BIL removed my garbage disposal or just disconnected it when he repaired the plumbing lines to the dishwasher one time. Just call me Mr Observant. Yes, he pulled it, it was in the way and I said I seldom used it.

I too hope you are all feeling better, more comfortable and on the mend.

No Thurs night football last week either, Whiska.
What a jolt. I think I ended up Netflixing something.

I just got back from the store. What cruddy weather to be driving in. Folks were right, the plows really haven't been running.
There was an accident at a squirrely intersection on the way to the store. And another on the way back. The one coming back must have been bad, they had the driver's side window covered.

At least the grocery store wasn't crowded.
