For several years I’ve been squeezing my sexy butt into size 36 jeans. And then life changed last summer, and they started slipping. And life changed some more in the fall and then post surgery and weight-loss, they were down-right impossible to hold up without super-cinching a belt around the waist. And even then, without a butt to hang on to my pants still easily pulled down, without unzipping.
So the other day I went to a yard sale and got some shorts in a size 34. Nice, light-weight, comfortable. Pulled them up, buttoned the top and zipped them up. And they slid right off my hips anyway. Dang, I guess I lost more inches than I thought. I think with a belt they’ll be okay for around the house.
And yesterday, my daughter took me to Lowe’s for a new washer. I ended up getting both a washer and a dryer. Part of my selection was size of the washtub, but also how soon it could be delivered, since that was a major factor.
This is what I had:
And this is what was delivered to me today:
Besides taking up a lot more real estate, it appears I have a bit of a learning curve ahead of me. I had insisted on a top-loader, thinking I could do as I’ve always done — fill a tub and leave the lid up for soaking yarns, then turn the cycle dial over to Spin and the close the lid to spin out — no agitating yarns. Nope, this machine locks the lid for each cycle. Well, damn! I was reading the User Manual and it seems there’s a way to make it do what I need, but I have to fiddle with it to figure it out BEFORE I try doing it with actual yarns. I don’t want agitating hanks of yarns. 🙂
But I am feeling quite worn out the last couple days, so I’m going to chill for the evening.
