Just be glad you don't have to take it to the river and beat it on a rock.

All I want is a simple scale. My present one is a digital. Step on it and if you already know your weight, it is pretty accurate. But if you don't like what you wiegh, move it an inch or two and you can lose up to 10 lbs.

They have scales that not only tell you what you weigh but whether you are hydrated, your BMI, what you should weigh, what your calorie intake should be, and a host of other stuff that I have no interest in. All I want to know is what do I weigh today. And I want it to be consistent each and every time I step on it. I looked at the first ten pages. There is only one company that consistently got five stars on all their products. And they are in my price range. I received $100 from my daughter for my birthday. So now I have to decide which scale to get. It will probably be the least expensive one with the least features. And it will have a large readout that I can see when I am standing up with a back light.
I got a plain digital scale online from Walmart. It only cost $12, including shipping.

A neighbor had just gotten home from her doctor visit, weighed herself, and said it was exactly the same.

LOL Now that's my kind of scale

I got mine at Walmart a couple years ago. It's digital and the only fancy thing is that you can set it for up to 4 different people to keep track of weights. I paid about $18 for it.

The only thing I've managed to do today is make hubbys lunch, clean the kitchen.

Had BIG plans today to finish up my new living room curtains.
Finish sewing the tie backs today. My body tells me no. Too tired, sore after being up and down a step ladder all day yesterday hanging curtains, moving furniture.

My left arm has been numb, tingly since I woke up. Who knows what's up with that. Typing with one hand is an adventure.

Just ran Mom and my Brother over to their motel room, the furry "grandkids" finally graced Mom with their presence and Latté even let Mom touch her

If I am in another room Baby Brother sounds just like my Dad. They are just waiting to see if there is a load for Denver on Tuesday, if not they will go ahead and leave for home in Wyoming tomorrow.

I can't stand ironing! I would rather scrub toilets
I'm too tall, even at it's highest setting I have to bend down. Kills my back.
I smooth out the washing when I hang it outside and hang everything I can on hangers.
I no longer iron t-shirt, jeans etc. Only iron hubby's work shirts and trousers.
When he makes me angry I only iron the front of his shirt and leave the back he doesn't even notice.
