@ODDEGG: I have no problem folding fitted sheets. Once you learn the method, it is easy. I also enjoy ironing. There are very few chores I do not like. Guess I am the “odd egg”.
@TIMBOB2313: I still wear an analog watch and probably will until I am no longer alive. My son wears an analog watch as well, even though he will check the time on his smartphone periodically. There are probably a lot of people who still wear watches.
@STEPHAM: I did that once and joked with the doctor about meeting in the middle. He laughed but told me “Of course, that is not what happens. The small intestine is what separates the two.” As if I did not know! I was just happy to get both of those procedures done.
@SID W: Yes, it was more challenging, but I do a lot of challenging things around the house. And think of the things I learn by doing!
@WAGNERTINATLANTA & SHAMINO : The only thing I ever bought at IKEA were some cutting boards and a digital scale. They did not need assembly. : )
The only one of those I ever saw in action was just as loud as a regular vacuum. Don’t think a cat would get up on it.
I don’t have trouble following directions for assembling things. The only direction I ignored was: needs two people to assemble. Since I live alone, I did not have anyone to help me and managed to do it by myself. No leftover parts. Those items turned out just fine.
Sounds familiar. Too many people rest on their parents laurels, so to speak.
When I broke my wrist, the doctor wrote a prescription for Vicodin. I did not have it filled. I used just a couple of Advil the first night instead. After that I did not use anything.
Next time I need a washer or dryer, I will pick a less expensive type. Fewer things to go wrong that way. My set that I bought 20 years ago are still running, but have had to have occasional repairs. Living alone, I do not have a lot of laundry, but with a family, I can see where both washer and dryer would have died a long time ago.
