Justa lazy Tuesday

Well it's Tuesday and the delivery men have come and gone with the new Washer and Dryer. They did a very professional in and out no muss no fuss delivery. Cindy stayed home to supervise me supervise them in bringing it in. All went well. She's even done a test load of clothes already. It was kind of cool to see them bring the old machines out and the new ones in. I would have thought they would use carts which I was wondering how that would work with the distance they would have to cover. Well they didn't use carts they had a strap system that two of them used to just walk the machines in and out. It was a lot better than using  the cart and squeezing through tight places and getting tire marks all over the rugs and floors. Cindy and I were quite impressed with the operation. We we're like the Clampetts standing there watching them go back and forth with out exerting a whole lot of effort in the process. No banging in to the walls or anything. I told the guy we didn't get out much. So this was pretty much entertainment for us.  I guess in retrospect Cindy didn't have to stay home to supervise me. I did get a free breakfast out of it. Before going into work she made me a nice breakfast.

I stopped in yesterday and got my new glasses. It is really weird trying to get used to them. In fact as I type this I had to just go to my Wally world reading glasses. It's easier to see with these. I'm going to have to get used to the other ones. I didn't give the last pair I had a very good chance at working. I'll have to be more diligent about getting used to these.

It looks like the snow might finally be done here on the east coast. Knock on wood. I'm going to have to get out there this weekend and try to rake up some of the yard around the driveway where the plow dug up the ground. I've been waiting just to be sure the snow was really done. Watch out, We'll probably get hit with a major snow storm on Monday. It would figure. Cindy just took her snows off. I haven't taken mine off the car yet. That reminds me. That's something I'll have to do.

Money Fun Fact
After paying nearly 24 years on your 30 year home mortgage, you will still owe over 50% of the amount you borrowed.

Glad to know the supervising event ended with a good breakfast lol, may the new washer and dryer serve you all well!

It snowed here yesterday, huge, wet snowflakes and rain mixed. I guess my ban on cold weather didn't take!

Wednesday it's supposed to be sunny, we shall see.

I still use my Dollar Store reading glasses even though I got new ones. I just can't see the computer right with the "expensive" ones. It's frustrating.

I'm glad Cindy stayed to babysit you while you babysat the delivery guys because I'm not sure you could have handled it on your own. I would have done the same thing. There are just some things you can't trust to a man :-)

I think we need a pic of you wearing the glasses.

Stehphany,
I'm going to need that in writing next time you put a "ban" on snow.

Precious,
I think the only reason Cindy stayed home was to scope out the delivery guys. You women and your "handy" men and delivery guys. See what Ana started?

Evan,
A Pic of me and my glasses huh? I'll have to see If I can commission momma to take a picture of me. No selling it on E-bay as a dart board though.
