So, I got up today and I was getting ready for my walk. I was going to toss something in the dryer for a bit. I had already started my bed linen in the wash. The dryer wouldn't start! Oh no! I messed with it for a bit but I had to leave it and ate breakfast and went for my walk. I figured if I couldn't get it started when I got home, I'd have to carry my linen to the laundry and dry them there. I really didn't want to do this as I am extremely short on funds this month and that would have taken money I didn't ned to be spending. Plus, I'd have to go somewhere and get cash back since I never carry cash. The dryer had done this exact same thing before and my friend came and unplugged it, took it apart, couldn't find anything wrong with it and put it back together and plugged it in. It worked! LOL! So, I decided, I'm going to do that too!
I didn't take the back off, but I did unplug it and check the 'hose' that goes into the wall. I re-seated that and cleaned out some of the lint. I put the dryer back carefully, turned it on and it worked! YAY! I didn't have to go to the laundromat and I didn't have to leave. I was a happy camper. It's nice when something actually goes right for me every now and then. I put my bed linen in and it dried it.
I did other errands around the house that needed doing and I ran out and got some gas. I plan to go to Starbucks at least once to write during NaNo and i was low on gas. I didn't get a lot, because like I said, I'm low on funds. I had extra bills this month and it's really screwed me up. I need to buy stamps. I need to write letters, too! I'll write my letters tomorrow and get them mailed off.
As for NaNo, I did get that done for today. I wrote 2022 words! I have been on a roll. I am glad to get several early days with extra words in case I have days later that I need the buffer. It's always good to have it. Sadly, my pizza tradition after I hit 10,000 words will not be realized this month. I don't have enough to do that as I'm already going to struggle to make it through. Oh well!
