Too many hand vacs, and other stuff

April 3rd, 2014 at 07:43 am

Well, lo and behold, I now have not one, but two hand vacs from Bed, Bath & Beyond! I posted a few days ago that I had a confirmed delivery but no package, so I contacted BB&B. They ordered another, and they both turned up together! Now I have to take one back to the store. I'll do that this evening.

I'm relieved that no one stole it from the vestibule.

I mailed a package yesterday - $6 - and bought gas - $38. I looked for cheap prices on GasBuddy and was very pleased to find the lowest price right on my route home! $3.72 at a Thornton station.

I didn't do any real decluttering yesterday, but I did do a load of laundry and loaded the dishwasher. That was all I was up to in the evening. I guess you could say that I decluttered the laundry basket and the sink.

I did not make a call yesterday about my knee -- now I see this morning that I missed a call from my GP's office, so I'm going to see what that's about first. I tried to call back, but the nurse isn't in yet.

But I am feeling pretty comfortable with the new medication, and driving instead of train-riding is proving to be much kinder to my knee (because I can do less walking and stair-climbing). Driving is pretty nice for running errands, too. It was easy to stop at the post office last night, and tonight I'll stop at a BB&B right on the way. And it's quicker. I've been getting home before 5:30, and with the train, I get home at 6, or later, if the train is running late.

And in ways, it it less stressful. I don't have to worry about catching the train on time. If I wake up a little late, I don't have to rush in a panic. Driving, of course, is more stressful than riding, but so far the drive has been uneventful.

All that said, I still think it is likely I'll go back to train-riding after this month, or after my knee heals. It will be interesting to see how the cost compares, though.

Oops, forgot to add another expenditure. I ordered a couch cover from nomorerack, only $28. Hoping it will make my rough, staticky couch easier to live with.

    That seems typical that the vacuums would show up at the same time!

    I'm glad the driving is helping with your knee pain.
