Our microwave was finally delivered to the store. Unfortunately, I had to wait 45-minutes, when I stopped by on my way home after work to pick it up. Not because they were busy. But, because no matter how many times customer pick-up called or paged, the person assigned to get merchandise never came to help. The store manager finally went and found it and loaded it into my car. Have a great weekend. I know what Ill be doing on Saturday.
Tomorrow is St. Valentine’s Day. We’re planning to stay in although we may do something on Saturday when restaurants aren’t so crowded. Its just a “greeting card holiday”. But, it can still be a fun day just like Halloween. Friday is supposed to be one of the coldest days of the year. So, curling up on the couch has extra appeal.
Obviously you can’t tell from this week’s photos; but The Wife has really been building some tone in her upper body since we started working out more at home. In addition to being more convenient, we both seem to be having better workouts. We’ll still try and get outside whenever the weather cooperates. But, is nice to have a good backup option. Especially since winters are so long around here.
The Wife and I are really enjoying having exercise equipment at home. Especially on these cold, dreary winter days. We don’t have to get bundled up for the walk from the car to the gym. Now, our only concern is being too hot while we work out. And, if that is our only problem, then we really don’t have any problems.
We are back in the saddle today in more ways than one. It feels good to be back. I don’t know what we caught; but I hope to never have it again. The only “good” thing is that we really didn’t miss anything fun as we’re in the midst of a dark dreary winter. It hasn’t been bitter cold. But still not the sort of weather that we would have wanted to do anything outside.
Modern technology is great except when it is wrong. The “check vent” light on our dryer came on. Checking the vent is easy. But moving everything out of the way, getting the ducting disconnected and reconnected is a pain. And, after all of that, I didn’t find any obstructions despite checking every bend and curve. I did, however manage to get covered in dust and lint. The machine likely mis identified what it was drying and though it should dry sooner or with less heat.
The pictures this week are kinda dark. I was going to light them up in the photo editor when I was cropping and resizing them; but decided not to since its been such a dark, dreary week. Next Saturday cannot come soon enough. The Winter solstice may be the start of winter; but, at least the days will (slowly) be getting longer. And, just knowing that sunset is getting later every day helps us survive the winter.
