ON THE BENCH (being sick, sucks!)

At 3AM on Christmas morning, our furnace died. The trailer was so cold that the inside of the fridge was warmer than the kitchen. Furnace got fixed on the 26th for just under 200 bucks. I was happy with that price and thankful we didn't need to buy a new furnance.

Right now, we have 2 days of staycation, left. Tim was supper sick during the first part, then I caught it. He's moving about now, I'm still on the bench. Currently shopping online for a new wavy waffle cutter. Deciding between white or orange. My head is stuffed up and I've blown through 1,004 tissues.

Ugh.

  1. Being sick is no fun. Being sick and unable to taste your soup sucks.
    Get better soon.

    1. We did enjoy being snuggled on the couch, watching fun things on NetFlix. But the being sick part, sucked.

  7. I'm so sorry to hear you aren't well. When my daughter buys kitchen appliances she doesn't bother deciding on colour. Everything is white or stainless steel.
    Happy New Year.

  11. Being sick is blech-y - I hope you feel better fast. I'm dreading this year's virus; I've heard it's a particularly bad one . . .

    And why does stuff always go wrong when everything is closed? We've had issues on Christmas days with a few things, too. It certainly makes for a memorable holiday, but still!

    1. Tim had it first and my poor immune system just couldn't help but get it too.

      Sorry you had some issues with stuff on Chrsitmas too. Hope it all got settled for you now.

      Happy 2018!

    A waffle cutter should make you feel better. Go with white.

    1. Thanks, Parsnip. The sale ended before I snagged one. But that's okay, I wanted to see the ones at the kitchen stores, first.

    1. Hey William. This is so weird to me because I didn't re-publish this but I also saw it in my dashboard. But you say you saw a whole bunch. ACK. I wonder if it was the switch to my dot com that did it. Thanks for letting me know you saw a bunch of mine repost.
