Bad Appliances, Good Friends

Here's what happened:

My friend Loretta came over and wrote with me today. Appliances were going to be delivered so she was going to be with me when a strange man came in with a washer/dryer and stove.

I couldn't sleep last night and so today I was cranky. Then I got a call that the stove we ordered was incorrectly entered into a computer so they were going to deliver two washer and dryers. "They" fixed that. However when washer/dryer came it didn't work.


Cranky, almost in tears, surrounded by bad appliances, undercooked food and stinky laundry.

This is when my friend Loretta said, "Hey, can I read you my blog I am going to post?"

It's as if Jesus himself came into my house, saw my bad appliances and cranky heart and gave me good comfort and fresh perspective. Loretta's words offered truth.

So if you have any sense and especially if you are at all cranky, go to Loretta's blog called Complementary Thoughts at

I get a brand new stove and washer/dryer next Tuesday...oh well!

oh, bummer that it didn't work out. But Loretta's post is beautiful. I was just there.

Glad it eventually worked out.

What a disappointment. I hope it will all work out soon. Not only is it hard to go to the laundry mat - there is hardly a one in site.

You never fail to make me laugh! I thought I was funny until I met you. I can't compare :D I think you could take 'em all on Comedy Central!
