It started a couple of weeks ago. The “Weed Whacker” died the day before my husband had to leave for a two week business trip. Our yard has a mowed yet shaggy around the edges look to it right now.
Then last Thursday, the DVD/CD player in my Mini Van (Yes, I am still driving a Mini Van…but I love it and it’s paid for. That is a topic for another day.) ate my brand new, only listened to twice Jack Johnson CD. And actually, it ate 6 of my favorite CD’s because the player is jammed and won’t open up. Now I love living here in Greensboro, but I have to say the radio stations here are the worst!! I miss my CD’s.
Technically, my Crock Pot didn’t die but I did give it away to my daughter to take back to school with her now that she has a budding interest in preparing tasty food. So I have been temporarily “crock-less”.
And on Saturday, my best friend, my Mr. Coffee Coffee Maker (dressed in Red) decided he didn’t want to make coffee for me anymore. EMERGENCY!!
Au revoir, mon ami. It was fun while it lasted but you’ve been replaced.
The red was a fun color but I never quite got used to the nuclear green, glow in the dark, clock on the front. My new Mr. Coffee is sleeker and very handsome. It’s black and stainless steel and the clock doesn’t look like it’s radioactive. Which is a good thing.
And while I was in the black and stainless mood, I replaced my Crock Pot with this lovely model.
And I almost forgot. The kitchen faucet decided it was done corroding underneath the sink and decided to leak lots of water under the cabinet and onto the wood floors. Luckily my 16 year old son brought that to my attention with “What’s up with all the water on the floor?” A bucket and some beach towels, and a trip to Lowe’s later that evening and the next day their wonderful installation program had my new faucet installed. That was a fun day!
I dread finding out how much it’s going to cost to fix/replace my DVD/CD player. But it has to get fixed soon. These Greensboro radio stations are making my ears bleed. I know I am “old school”…I only have an i-Pod shuffle so that rules out hooking up a pod to my radio like my kids do in their cars.
And now I only have “Weed Whacker” shopping to look forward to. :)
