I’m still hacking like crazy — seems everyone that has gotten sick in the park all have had horrible sounding coughs. Most of them have been sick in bed 4-6 days too.
Peg has now assented to the truth that she’s sick too. Stubborn girl. But she has no fever and is ‘just’ achey and sounding rather a lot like a frog. I get so angry when she won’t allow herself to ‘be’ sick. But what are you going to do about a person’s character? She is who she is and I love her.
My day was spent fixing water hoses; twice. The first time I must not have gotten the little interlocking high’s and low’s in quite the right place. I walked away and it was dry, I came back and it was wet. Oh well…. what you don’t learn in your head, you learn in your feet (Thank you momma.) Do it right the second time.
We also made a trip to H*E*B for some dry ice. That stuff is more expensive than ice ($1.24/lb) but it’s cold enough to keep frozen meat frozen, so maybe we won’t have to discard everything that was in the refrigerator. I’m funny about safe temperatures. Some things I never take a chance trying to save. It there’s a problem, out they go. Others I’m less concerned with — foods with lots of vinegar, etc. But because of these fridge problems over the last year I have discarded more food than I may have in the rest of my life. It really bothers me to see that happen and if nothing else that factor gets me thinking about other refrigeration options. But there’s no one here to do anything about that. Grrrrrrrrrrr.
And I have to say that after looking at the reviews on Google for some of the service outlets in Texas (Camping World, etc) I wouldn’t trust them to fill my tires. So far the people we have found by word of mouth have been superior. Maybe not fast, but they have come through for us.
Other than that it was a work-a-little, nap-a-little day for us both.
Lots of thoughts about what to do and when to leave but first priority is to get healthy and second priority is to figure out what the deal with with the fridge — so until both those are accomplished I’m treading water.
Let’s hope tomorrow I have better news. Thanks for stopping, and I’ll talk with you tomorrow.
