Ordinary Saturday


Doing the usual stuff. You know, groceries, laundry, cleaning.

And then I decided I'd give Howie a bath, get some of the salt off of him. Okay, found the car bucket but of course it's been so long since I washed a car that the sponge crumbled into dust. Hm, a rag would have to do. Filled the bucket with semi-hot water since it's still below freezing today. I was about half finished when the nail on my pinky which was by now soft from being in the hot water got snagged in the rag which then got caught between the fender and the mudflap. You guessed it. The nail ripped right off below the skin line. Figures. And, just to make it even more fun, I decided I couldn't stop with Howie only partly clean so I dipped my hand right back in the bucket which by then had salt from the car mixed in with the water. Damn if that didn't hurt. Too bad Howie didn't come the option of washing himself like it the picture.

Yep, typical day here. So what did you do?

Ooooh I hate when I do that! Rip my nails, I mean. Yep, it hurts.

this is why I avoid washing my car - Ida - you need danger money.

OWWWWW. Hurts just thinking about it!

Me? Talked with my sister all day and much of the night. It's been two years so we had FUN. Needed me some 'o that.
