Other than our outing to Folklorama, I haven’t written too much about my life so far this summer. It has been pretty busy. Here is a quick summary.
Our youngest graduated from high school, got accepted into Business Administration at St. Lawrence College in Kingston.
My virtual assistant business started booming as I picked up two new clients.
I attended the local blood donation drive.
Our dryer broke. The control panel is fried. The technician isn’t sure how it happened unless it was triggered by a power surge. Also, the washing machine needs repairs as it is leaking internally but not enough for us to notice water dripping out the bottom. However, when the technician moved the washer to access the dryer — there was the water. I figure by the time the repairs are complete, I could have purchased an entirely new set.
Lesson learned: do not buy expensive appliances. They don’t last any longer than cheap ones. Of course, it might be due to the fact that the movers dragged them down three flights of stairs, transferred them from one moving truck to another and hauled them from Texas to Manitoba. It doesn’t matter. It is way too late to claim damages on the move.
Our dog Rebel, broke off a dew claw while running in the long grass. They had to sedate him to remove the broken claw and he was in a bandage for 3 days. He wasn’t happy but was well-behaved as he hates the cone of shame.
I’m going to visit both kids in Ontario before they start the school year. It isn’t really going to be a vacation as we’ve got to deal with banking, insurance, and other administrative details but at least I get to see the kids.
