The doctor gave me another heavy duty cortisone shot. I will go in on Monday for a MRI. We went to the temple after. We did some sealings but my knee didn't like that so we did some initiators. We left there and did a little shopping and I got my hair cut at J.C. Penney's. I really like the lady that cut my hair. She is 74 and is retiring at the end of Dec. She is from South America I can't remember the country. She had been to the temple to see the lights. She said she love the Christus there. She had cut the hair of another missionary. I really liked her and feel bad she is leaving. I gave her a tip and a pass along card for a free Book of Mormon. The card had a really picture of the Savior. We then went to IKEA for dishes. We sorted all the stray dishes out of the cupboards at the Barlow. We threw then out and got just a standard white dish that can be easily replaced. We also thought if we cut down the number so there is just barely enough dishes for each person to have one they have to do their dishes or there will not be a dish for them to eat off of. We got non breakable glasses.
After we got home we decided to work on our treats for the neighbors for Christmas and get the laundry done. I have noticed water under the washer and I have been hoping we didn't have a leaking problem. I was almost convinced that we needed to contact the landlord. But I put a dry cloth under the washer and the washer didn't leak. When I had the dryer on I got leaking. The dryer doesn't leak I thought. I found the instruction book and started reading. I found that since our dryer doesn't vent outside that water collects in this holding tank that should be emptied after each load. I have never empty it. I was so proud of myself for figuring out the problem without having to call someone in and feeling stupid. I made a huge tray of snikerdoodles cookies for the lobby for Christmas and for those that work at the Barlow. We put some little treats together for our neighbors on our floor. Tonight we both feel like we are about 90 years old. Hopefully after a good night sleep our bodies will be energized.
