Moth, I am sorry to hear about that as well, I am thinking of you.
Laurie, glad you are having such a good time, hope you and Tanya get together soon.
Candy, I hear you about the fatigue end of things. I feel the same way a lot of the time, it honestly is a struggle for me as well. As far as covid stuff, we have stupid people protesting the mandatory vaccines at certain places like hospitals. They protest at hospitals because it gets more media coverage than if they went to our provincial gov't Queen's Park. We are not having many here and I can say I don't support unmasking or not vaccinating myself though I keep it to myself.
Not doing much today. Drying clothes on a heated rack. Older DB and I went out last night shopping and I expected him to offer to take a look at my broken dryer. He told me just to junk it and not bother repairing it. Since I spent 500 dollars on it, I can't see not repairing it since I really cannot stand towels that are not soft, also can't hang outside as no balcony. I decided that I will call a repair place and as long as it is not more than the washer itself, I will get it repaired while I have enough money to do it. Not willing to put it in a landfill or just leave it in the house. Not sure why I was irritated at the suggestion I just give up on it but I was.
Edited to add that the dryer will tumble stuff for a while without heat and very brief warm. I can use it like this because I can dry stuff before it goes in, towels feel the same so for now I can hold off on the repair place and use my racks for most of the drying and toss in for a few minutes of fluffing. I am very happy about this. Cautiously optimistic as I don't require heat to dry stuff off, will give it a few days to see if it is sustainable.
