Monday Morning

October 7th, 2019 at 06:46 am

Yesterday I sat at the two baseball games for about four hours. Plus, the ride there was about 40 minutes each way. That was a big chunk of time. DS and I were the only fans there for GS1. But it was a beautiful day! There's something invigorating about being out in the open air.

I bought coffee for myself and DS ($2). In turn, he bought me a hot dog when it got to be lunchtime.

After the games, I came home and did laundry and I washed and seasoned my new pans. I used one to heat up some scrambled beef and peppers (with spaghetti sauce and rice). I forgot what I was doing and burned it! I rescued some the the food and the pan was fine -- but why do I burn food every time I buy a new pan? Like it's an initiation rite?

Then, while I was making the bed yesterday, my hand went right through one of the pillowcases. This was my second best set, now that I have bought a new set. Makes me wonder if I need to buy another set. I can use pillowcases from my third best set, which I am going to throw away, but the second best set will look awfully patchwork, since the bottom sheet already doesn't match. I'm not excited about buying more sheets right now, so I'll watch Sam's to see when they go on sale.

I like the Sam's sheets (Member's Mark 450 thread-count) because they are very soft to the touch and reasonably priced. I tried them out when sleeping at my brother's house and I'm sold. But my brother said they do go on sale occasionally, so I'll keep my eye out and wait.

I'm taking Iggy to the vet today, and I'll be buying the canned kidney diet food when I'm there. I hope they are stocked up this time!

    Perhaps you have to get used to the pan and therefore you burn something first.

    Sorry about the pillowcases. Can you buy some extras that are plain to get you through until you buy another set of sheets on sale?

    Seconding the idea of just buying extra pillowcases.

    I just had a pillow case unravel about six inches at the seam. It was frustrating Thankfully I can sew it, but it was new, so that was annoying. It's worth saving because this set is the softest I've ever owned and the sheets are fantastic.

    CB you’re the best GG ever! And I’m laughing at the seasoning the pots comments, I never heard this saying until a few months ago and to actually see it again, tells me I’ve been missing out.

    I'm an odd one I guess, but I don't have matching sheets or pillowcases ... don't really care about that. Just whatever fits the bed. My DH doesn't care ... and we're the only two who ever see them.

    Sorry about the pan. That would be frustrating.
