Found that shower curtain.
I had looked behind the dryer multiple times, but this time I pulled the dryer out. The shower curtains are a light fabric, a slippery material. It had not only slipped behind the washer, but it had slithered off the back of the white vent hose, and fallen beneath that. When I looked behind the dryer, I saw the vent hose, and not what lie beneath.
Strange how ridiculously happy something like that can make a body!
A late start has been announced for work tomorrow. We begin at 11:30. I've picked the rotisserie chicken carcass and put together a wild rice and mushroom chicken soup. All I have to do is pop the crock from the fridge to the crock pot when I leave, and we will have a nice hot pot of soup when we get home. Supposed to be in the single digits tomorrow evening so a nice cup of soup will hit the spot.
Also tomorrow night, my countdown app will say that I have 4 more days until I retire.
(And yes, Bob, you do detect a spring in my step.)
