Ha!   We do not have kids, so filters were poorly developed.  I have had moments that sent parents scrambling to get their kids indoors.   Bad day mowing resulted in me losing it and the mower went flying across the yard with loud words.  It was not one of my better moments.  But very memorable moment to some neighbors.

#1 daughter is here safe and sound. And, we got out of Milwaukee without a scratch.  ::)

Time for a nap. I've been awake since 03:15.

I feel your pain Major!   Sunday, we were doing laundry for the upcoming work week.   Wife had a load in the front loading washer when it quit.   Fortunately, i knew the issue.   There is a filter on the bottom of the thing that if clogged the maching stops in its tracks.  Problem is, it now has water in it and for me to get to it, I have to lay on the floor.   Me and a bunch of towels get soaked for a lousy $0.37 in change that had blocked up the system.   The bigger pain is getting it back together.  Lots of colourful language, and it is done and the washer is fixed.   Big problem.  Now the dryer will not shut off.   Only way to get it to stop spinning is to unplug it.   Bigger problem, Chiefs are ready to kick off.   I unplug it, trying to convince spouse it is a coincidence and I didn't even touch the dryer.    Well, watching the game and youtube to find a fix.   Found one, then a second one that had our dryer.   Aparently the board relays get stuck.  Eventually the board will need to be replaced, but a quick fix is to expose the board, whack the relays with the screwdriver, put it all back together and voila it should work.   Wife was doubtful, but at halftime, I ran up, dissembled, whacked and reassembled.   Voila, it works.   Restores my faith in the internet and questionable fixes.   Wife still thinks I did something but we were both appropriately dressed in clean clothing for the week and no expensive visits from repairmen.  I did have my sweatpants at half mast to cover any union issues.

If you are really lucky, the relay is a common one that can be replaced with a soldering iron.
Persistant effort will result in finding a compatible replacement…. Even if it means “dangling off the board”

Have to run her to get nails done today, then I'm in till Wed hopefully.  Got Dr appointment and should get results of biopsy.  With the tumor not having spread at all even not the best news can't be real bad, just another round of a different Chemo.

We are doing OK, Rita is doing better, she fell Sat afternoon coming in the house.  but she landed on her butt on the second step and I got her up, she fell Wed at Drs office. I should have just left her on the step and called 911.  I was carrying things in and had to put those down and pee real bad.  Yeah another comedy of sorts.  Surprised no one saw me go in and leave her.  But she was actually alright or mostly.

Well I got her in without the cops showing up, but we got my BP up again so I got her settled and took nitro and real soon it was back to normal, HR did not go up so that's better, a 155 or so pulse is more dangerous than a 200/100 BP and for now easy to fix.

But she could not get up off the toilet by herself and at about 3 am I almost didn't so after a short discussion I called 911.  She got gone and my BP was high again, but not as much.
Anyway I got to sleep about 9 when I was sure she was OK and texted/called people.  Mostly slept yesterday between calls and texts.
Got up about 12 am because licky dog wanted out, food and water.    I am drinking also because I might be a bit dehydrated.

Supposed to freeze and snow and will likely be icy and we both think if it does I should stay home.  We will be fine, I have plenty of supplies, will rest up till she gets home.   
If biopsy comes out good this week we should have it made or at least for a while.
