At Home All Day

I was so tired all day yesterday. My eyes were killing me. I mentioned that ever since I've started getting the shots in my right eye, that both of my eyes are very sensitive to the bright light. I had a Facebook friend tell me that her husband gets eye injections and he has sensitivity to the bright light also. I went to bed pretty early last night and fell asleep almost immediately. Got up early this morning because the Sears repairman was coming to check out my dishwasher. My time window for him to come was between 8 am and 12 noon. The repairman called me at 12:04. He had gotten lost which a lot of people do when they come here because the Internet maps take them into our community the wrong way. Anyway, he checked the dishwasher and it worked perfectly, but made the loud noise I had called them about. He said the noise was coming from the pump, but that the pump was working perfectly. He said the pump motor was making noise because it is getting old. It would have cost me $99 for a new pump motor and $130 for the labor. I could buy a whole new dishwasher similar to the one I have for anywhere between $299 and $399 plus installation so I decided not to do anything right now. I'll just put up with the noise. I still had to pay $79.95 for the service call, but I knew that when I made the appointment. They gave me a 90 day service guarantee so that if I have to call them back within 90 days, I won't have to pay the $79.95 again. He also gave me a voucher for anywhere from $60 to $100 off of a new dishwasher. I don't use the dishwasher all that much, so I'll just wait until this one completely stops working. The guy who came out reminded me of Scott Caan who plays “Danno” on “Hawaii Five-O”. Had a late lunch and then took Hiker for a walk down along the dry riverbed. It was pretty warm outside and I was sweating pretty good when we got back. Got up to 85° on my patio. Have to get up early tomorrow and get over to the full service car wash to get my car cleaned up. They have an “early bird special” from 8 am to 10 am. My friend Ed (Ben's best buddy) is coming up from Pomona tomorrow to go to lunch with me.

Me waiting for the repair man this morning:


  1. Sometimes we spend days just WAITING---don't we? Whether it's for a phone call or delivery person or repair person--or whatever. Glad you didn't have to buy a new dishwasher YET..... It's always something, isn't it????? Gads!!!!

    We had a big freeze here this morning.. Luckily, our plants/flowers seem to be okay... BUT--I'm SO ready for Spring to get here and STAY.... ha


  2. Hi Kay, sorry you've had problems with your eyes. Sounds painful! Repairman visits are out of sight and repairs even more so. My dishwasher gave out two years ago and it was never replaced. I'd like a new one but the longer without I got used to washing them by hand again. Maybe one day :)

  3. Sorry to hear the news about your dishwasher wasn't better. I wonder what can be done to help your eyes.


I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
