We got a new washing machine, as I suspected we would. The appliance company called Thursday and arranged delivery for late yesterday morning, and I worked it out with my boss to have my lunch hour at home -- which meant going back and forth from work twice in one day. But hey -- I guess I can't complain. At least now we can wash our clothes!
Partly for that reason, yesterday was crazy. I also had to go to work early, because the library closed early for a faculty/staff event -- which of course I had to attend. So the workday wound up being long...
...AND I've been feeling like I'm getting a cold. The back of my throat is sore, and I was incredibly tired both yesterday afternoon and last night. Dave and I were watching TV yesterday evening, and I felt like some ghostly spirit was pulling blankets up to my chin and singing lullabies in my ear, after secretly slipping me a sedative. I could barely keep my eyes open.
To top it all off, this morning the dog's stomach is singing a growling, gurgling chorus the likes of which I'm not sure I've ever heard. The minute we got up, she ran out the door to eat grass in the garden. So I'm not sure what's gotten into her, but it's not agreeing with her and apparently it's in a hurry to get out.
Dave and I watched "Passengers" on Thursday night, the sci-fi flick with Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. We liked it -- great effects -- but a ridiculous ending. Space roosters!
