Y’all, I had a wild week. Lots of things happened.
My microwave caught on fire. It can’t be salvaged, unfortunately. (Not enough water when cooking something. It caught on fire. I didn’t notice until the flames were well advanced.)
I single handedly destroyed one of my Instant Pots. (Different day, same week.) (I inserted the steamer basket, then poured four cups of water inside. I didn’t notice that the inner pot wasn’t there, so I basically ruined it. I’m still kicking myself about this mistake.)
I lost an entire chapter of the new book and I still don’t know how I did it. (Still in the dark about this one.)
I think I ruined my electric kettle (part of the Instant Pot destruction). (Water poured all over the electric base of the kettle.)
The screen door in the kitchen now needs to be repaired. (That was just weird. The door nearly fell off in my hand as I opened it.)
However, when I picked up my car from the service department of the dealership this week, I had a lovely encounter with someone. There was a problem, but she was sweet and helpful in getting it fixed.
I lost three pounds.
My editor read the new book in record time so now I get to work on editorial revisions.
I did my son’s taxes the other night and he’s getting a huge refund. Plus, his student loan is finally paid off (we celebrated).
Stanley and I slept together last night because I was cold. He’s a great heating pad. (He’s on the arm of my chair as we speak. Still nice and warm.)
So, all in all, everything balanced out.
Hope your ups and downs were a wash, too. Or more on the plus side.
Have a wonderful Friday!
