Week at a Glance

February 1-5

Funny thing about shopping is that one can go in to a store for a single item and come out with many more. Yep. I went to Sears to get some vacuum cleaner bags and came out a whole lot poorer.

My water softener quit working in the fall, and I have been putting off getting a new one just because of the expense. Making big purchases is one thing I don't enjoy about home ownership. Well . . . the vacuums and supplies are located on the second floor of Sears along with appliances. I ended up meandering over to the water softeners and discovered they were on sale at a pretty good discount. So, I ended up buying a new one. Now here's the scary part. I did not want to spend nearly two hundred dollars for delivery & installation so I decided that I would install the softener myself. I thought to myself, how difficult could this be? I guess we'll see. This could get interesting!
