All began Friday am when I finally crawled out of my "coffin" to begin my day... Took a while, but I soon learned that the tv in the kitchen had lost it's sattelite connection - the reciever had croaked! Dang! No tv in the CrazyKitchen!?
Still faced with the issue of the leaky pipes+ under the kitchen sink, I fumbled around some, until I finally began to feel agitated about my dr appt that afternoon! (pop another pill!) I finally left the house in what I thought was plenty of time, but as
fact would have it, I arrived only 3 mins before they had asked me to! Good thing that I hadn't dragged my feet! Doc wandered in, and we chatted about a few "issues" regarding ear/nose/throat, and then he took a look... "I don't even need a biopsy! It's
nothing to worry about!" Antibiotics, or lancing it, I asked? Naw, we'll leave it be since it's not bothering you... His diagnosis was "a benign cyst." Hooray!
On to this afternoon... I finally decided that after much thought, and research, I was going to tackle that pesky plumbing issue! I was fearful that I wouldn't be able to contort this old body in ways that it's not meant to be contorted - at least not for
more than just a few minutes... Ok, one step at a time, and "take a break!" Much to my total "glee," I was able to remove the old disposal, and ready the sink for it's "new friend!" Yes, I had run into a couple of "hiccups," but with a little determination,
and of course checking my "info," I finally pulled out the defunct unit... and TOOK A BREAK! Two and half hours after I began, I sat here taking yet another break, pleased in that as crippled as I began feeling too many times while folded up on the floor,
I was ready to "test" the new disposal, and watch for leaks. I was surprised once I got into things, just how many joints there are under the sink..., pieces of pvc pipes, (and with just how many pieces it took, to connect it all together!)
Triumphantly, I strutted the house, flexing my biceps (except I don't have any,) and proclaiming... "Who is the WASTE KING?" If nothing else, I have at least proven to myself that when in need, and given enough time, I can indeed still do basic home maintenance,
and also "learn new things" by reading, and following directions. Afterall, that's how I learned to cook! (I have little patience for folk who say they "can't cook!")
Can you READ? How better to learn? Read, and do... there you go!
So all, CrazyCook is pleased to announce that once I passed the anxieties of yesterday (having multiple issues going on!) and after deciding that no, I couldn't cancel my dr appt last minute, I survived Friday, and while I didn't get an early start today, by
2:30pm I had completed yet another task... I felt WONDERFUL!
Thank you all, for the support that you've offered regarding my throat, and I'm happy to report that there really isn't an issue - despite the impression the dentist left me with (guess he doesn't "need" bedside manner!)
Next, clean up the kitchen from days of neglect, and get CrazyCook's tv up and running again! So, if you can't cook, be "crazy," and if you can cook, be...
happy, be healthy, be crazy (anyway!)
