Well, I’m not sure how that superstition goes about the weather in March. If it comes in like a lion, then it is supposed to go out like a lamb. So, if the weather is bad in early March,, with snow and freezing temperatures then it will be nice at the end of March.
What I can’t figure out is whether that means the first day of March only? Or does it mean like the first week or so? Because March 1 was actually pretty mild and nice here, then overnight it got all ugly again. We’ve have snow and ice and schools closed and a big weather mess all week long.
I am hoping that the last of winter is here this week and that each day coming along will get progressively warmer and nicer, so that the last week of March is mild and nice.
And hopefully it will be flip flop weather again really soon. I wonder if any of the stores have got their flip flop stock into the stores yet? I need to grab the new colors and some fun styles of flip flops as soon as the stores put them out or my size will be gone like it was last year when I waited too long to go shopping.
My washer is broken. It’s only two years old and was the top of the line, but here I am loading up my car to go to the laundromat instead of doing my laundry in the comfort of my own home.
I called Lowe’s to see if the machine is covered under a warranty and they said that the parts are covered but the labor is not. So I asked them to send someone out ASAP and he will not be able to get here until next Thursday. I can’t wait that long to wash my towels and sheets and some of my jeans. So, here I go to the laundromat.
Did you know that one load in the laundromat washer is $4.75? And I have to wash three loads tonight! OMG – I don’t see how the people who have no washer at home can afford to pay that kind of price every week to wash their family’s clothes!
You can get a used washer for only $100 – but that does you no good if the place you are living does not have the hookups.. You have to have the water pipes and a drain installed to use a washer, and a lot of the older apartments and the cheaper apartments don’t have hookups and some don’t even have laundry rooms at all.
Sometimes I buy Poptarts to keep in the pantry for a snack and also in my desk at work for when I am hungry but can’t take time to get an actual meal. Work gets pretty hectic at the dealership and there are days when I don’t get more than a few minutes between customers to get something to eat. So a few bites of a Poptart are fast and easy and they are not messy.
Sometimes when I am at home nibbling on a Poptart for a quick snack, my dog will come and beg for a piece of it. But he only wants a strawberry Poptart – if I have any other flavor of Poptart, he sniffs at it and then turns his head away. So, why do dogs love strawberry Poptarts? He will eat blueberries when they are in pancakes or waffles. Why not blueberry Poptarts? It makes no sense!
