Herb Thiel writes a little about curmudgeonly type activity. A curmudgeon is a bad tempered person, particularly an older one. Well, today, it is my turn.
Last week, well, ugh.
I had minimal muscle soreness from the long hike the other day, but it feels like my entire body was jostled by it all just enough to feel unsettled. Even the slightest chill, say from an air conditioner made me shiver and it has been hard to get out of bed.
I love being outside and pushing my limits and I don’t regret the walk, but oh my, that took a lot out of me all around!
To top things off, local legend Shawn Erchinger brought a medeival torture device over and told me to harm myself with it.
Later, after avioding the torture session, I was released and sent to work with the incarcerated. Feeling sorry for myself, I purchased a can of cherry coke. I placed it in the storage area in between the front seats of my car for later.
After work, I went to church and did not see my family.
Upon my return home, I discovered from my family that the toilet was broken and there was water everywhere. They had turned off the water main and tried to sop up all the mess.
While I am not super handy, I took a look.
I found that a hose broke on a toilet and sprayed gallons of water everywhere. O turned off the source and turned on the water main.
Later, an 11 year veteran of life replaced this piece for us.
That was Wednesday.
Speaking of toilets, Thursday was wretched. On my way home from work, I frequently stop at the gas station at Penrose, Colorado.
I call it the Party at Penrose, another story altogether. ( Dare me and I will tell!)
The store manager smugly sent me away stating that the restroom was out of order. It was a Very long drive home.
Friday, I stopped again. I went before I left so I did not necessarily have to go.
Good thing too. Yuck.
Saturday was better, until about 7 in the morning. Squirrels were eating my sunflowers!
Hoping for a better day, I pulled my Garmin out to find directions to a hike near Boulder, Colorado.
Unfortunately, the Cherry Coke I forgot about earlier overheated and exploded all over it.
Now, I would love to tell you about my job assignment last week, but that was an adventure all on it’s own.
Sunday was all good. After church everything felt better.
