So, between tires, an axle, and the potential cost of my increasingly poorly functioning refrigerator, I'm feeling more than a little broke. I hate, hate, hate asking my mom for money but it's better than getting behind on something I suppose.
Of course, the fridge problem couldn't happen at any time during my vacation days. It has to happen now. I know it needs to be unplugged but that will have to wait until I can bring home some ice for the cooler for what little is in there. It just wasn't something I was prepared to do tonight. So, a flotilla of towels are stuffed under the front to mop up the steady drip of water. I don't know when I'll be able to call someone, much less how I'll pay for the sh!t. It's at times like these that I sometimes wish I rented, that way it would be someone else's problem...wouldn't it?
I wonder if I could get my dad or stepmom to come over and wait on a repair person...might be worth thinking about.
As usual, nothing much going on here. I do think my knee is going to be fine without drastic help, hopefully. The brace and the rehab exercises seem to be doing the trick although I had to lay off the anti-inflammatories as they were causing some indescribable intestinal distress despite taking them with food. In the interests of keeping what few readers I may have, I'll leave it at that.
On a more pleasant note, I am reading the new book The Secret Lives of Somerset Maugham and totally falling in love with someone who not only died in 1965, but was also of a homosexual persuasion though he never turned a blind eye to an exceptionally pretty lady either. I can feel a challenge coming on...to read, watch, and own everything he's ever written that I can get my hands/eyes on. I like it. I shall make it so.
What are you in love with lately?
