Today I got some closure. This morning about 11:45 I got a call from the window guy. Instead of saying he was on his way, he said it was really raining hard and he wanted to cancel.

I’m sorry, WHAT?

He made noises about installing screens in the rain and it would be better to reschedule.

WTF Dude? Are you made of sugar?

I was on the verge of freaking out, but there were strangers in the house and I didn’t want to scare them. I calmly asked if the weight/balance thing could be done from the inside.

He said it could.

I asked if it was difficult to install a screen door.

He said it wasn’t.

I said, “Great, then you can come and fix the window and if it’s too scary, you can just leave the screens in the garage.”

He was here at 12:10.

When I opened the door he said, “It was raining really hard downtown.”

WTF Dude, are we downtown? Nope. Get your ass out there and install 2 freaking screens. Then get in here and fix my kitchen window.

At 12:35 he was on his way.

Really? WTF Dude? It’s rain.

Tomorrow the inspector comes and then I am so done with Folkers, Anisha, and all the other wretched people who sell windows.

I mentioned there were strangers here.

At 8:15 the electrician showed up. The Hubs relayed everything on the list. And then went to work. The electrician got straight to it.

I mean really, is that so difficult? Why can’t the window people operate like this?

There was a long period of measuring, and then he did this:

That stupid light, the one that makes me so crazy, came down.

And then another dude showed up and wires got pulled through the attic. We had them pull Cat6 wire so we could wire the internet in different places and not rely on Wi-Fi. The Hubs also had them install a 20-amp circuit in his office.

Then this happened:

Instead of that ugly light, we’ll now have 3 over the non-existent peninsula.

Right now they look a little weird just hanging there over nothing.

But someday it will all make sense.

I hope.

By 1:30 everyone was gone and I was able to clean up and wash the floor.

While they were working, I was knitting the sleeves of my sweater.

You know what I discovered? I’m gonna run out of yarn. And it’s discontinued. I think the universe does not want me to knit a sweater.

I did get my shawl finished and blocked:

It took me a sec to locate the extra hole, but I eventually did:

It’s not horrible, but I’m still sending it off into the world. It’s made from Rowan baby merino silk dk in the color of strawberry. It’s not as red as looks, it’s a little heathered. It’s 25″ deep and 67″ across.

If anyone wants to give this gem a home, let me know in the comments and I’ll contact you privately and get it to you.

In other news, we finished up the side garden and pump platform:

It’s exactly not what I had in mind. But it’s serviceable, stable, and looks better than it did when we started:

I’ll zhuzh it up over time and be happy enough. I don’t often see it, so it’s not like it’s gonna bug me. Once it all fills in, it’ll be pretty enough to not look abandoned:

That’s what it’s been all about, right? Taking this sad, neglected, unloved house and turning it around.

Two out of three is all I can give currently.

Here’s a little hosta update:

One is pretty much eaten up, one is putting up a good fight, and this one seems oblivious to the struggles!

I think I might actually get one beet this season!

And here is 3 trips worth of bricks:

This is more then enough to line the 4 gardens, the herb garden and the future front yard tree. If we want to pull the trigger on the moat, I’m gonna need 2 more trips of 75 bricks each.

I finally found a place that will take my baby blankets! I used to donate regularly in VA and RI to Project Linus (, but here it’s been a challenge finding a chapter. The Hubs was trying to convince me to become a coordinator, but since I am so socially deficient I don’t think I would have great success at it. I have been looking for a home for my blankets for a while and I have finally found one! It’s called Favor House and they seemed excited to get the blankets. I’ll be going out there Thursday to drop a few off for them.

Maybe I will have an outlet once this house is finally done.

Non Update

There’s not a whole lot going on around here right now. I guess you could say I’m resting on my laurels.

Or I’m getting ready for the next big thing.

Kinda wish I knew what it was gonna be!

In the absence of house drama, I’ve been reading. I just finished Chrysalis, the 3rd book about Jeremey Logan by Lincoln Child. I think I’ve talked about this character before. Anyway, it’s not anything highbrow, just a thriller. I used to read a lot of thrillers and horrors, but I really don’t too much anymore. Maybe I need to get back to that. I can remember reading some books through the night because I was too scared to go to sleep.

Mostly I read in the late afternoon. I lay down on the couch and open a book. Out of nowhere, Mayhem will jump up and stuff himself in next to me.

Time to read:

Actually, all my favorite authors are either dead or just lending their name to new authors. Or, handing off characters to other writers. On the whole, I don’t disagree with this practice, but the new authors more often than not fundamentally change the characters. I can’t get with that. Write your own if you’re gonna do that.

Next time I go to the library, I’m gonna get another thriller.

I’ve been working away at my knitting projects.

I have finished the back and both fronts of my sweater:

Up next is the sleeves. Yikes. I’m thinking I might do them at the same time for uniformity. I was thinking of a variation on magic loop, but it might just be better to drag out 2 needles and just do 10-20 rows on one, then the same amount on the other.

While I’ve been avoiding starting the sleeves, I’ve been working on this shawl:

I have 14 more rows before the next part. I did make a grave error a bunch of rows back (I somehow added an extra hole). When I noticed it, I gave myself 4 rows to make another mistake so I could rip it all out and start over. But oddly, all the counts worked out perfectly. I decided that since I had started this over twice already, I could live with an extra hole. Besides, I’m not loving this yarn, so I really just want to finish this and send it into the world!

Guess what? My bricks went on sale! Hurrah! As soon as I discovered this miracle, I went outside to measure off how many bricks I want to get to finish a few projects.


Give or take.

We went out and got 54 bricks at $.25 each. Over the next few days we’ll go back and get more. And I might get some extra because the Hubs has now floated the idea of making a gravel “moat” around the whole house.

I don’t know how many more bricks I’ll need for that. I suppose I can measure it off tomorrow while we’re out there. I have a little over a week til the sale ends… 50 blocks every time I go out?

I think I just discovered what the next big thing is.

Climbing Out

I’ve been in a funk the last few days. I’m bored of it, so I’m climbing out.

Yesterday I prepped the last part of the living room for painting. It was a bit much. I basically had a ton of pictures and clocks stuck all over the place. When I didn’t know where to put something, I was just putting in a nail and hanging everything near my desk.

Now that it’s all clear, I’m thinking maybe it was contributing to the chaos in my head.

This is where I left it last night:

I was a little excited, because this represents the very last of the nasty beige blah in this house. Oh, wait, that’s not true. I still have 2 closets that need doing. But for areas I have to look at all the time, this gross soul sucking color is on its way out.

All those white spots were where something was at one time hanging. That’s a lot of chaos!

This morning after the Hubs left for work, I got right to painting.

Yes, I was working around all those obstacles! I think that is what took so long to get this done.

But done it is!

It’s like a big fat sigh of relief.

Now I’m weighing the options available for putting this back together. We’ve been kicking around some ideas of moving back into the guest room, and moving other furniture here and there. I kinda would prefer the dining room, but it’s pretty packed in there at present. I think staying here is my best option for the time being.

There are 4 outlets and 2 switches left to swap out, and that is the end of that chore.

While I was painting, I got a call from the ever-popular Anisha. It’s funny, in my head, I was composing my email to the owner of the company when my phone rang. How’s that for burning ears?

She reported the 3 items I’m waiting for are in. Only 10 weeks after they were due. We have set up an appointment for the 28th for someone to come and install 2 screens and fix the balance on the kitchen window – which means I’ll be able to open it by myself whenever I want and I won’t need a stick jammed into the frame to keep it open.

It’s the little things.

If this happens, the whole window ordeal will have only taken 62 weeks from order to completion. That has to be some sort of record someone is proud of!

So, to recap, next Tuesday I have the electrician and the window guy on site. I’m just waiting for Brandon to let me know Tuesday’s his only open day for months. I’ll have the trade trifecta! I actually hope he doesn’t do this, the chaos will be too great!

I almost forgot! We finished the AC in the shed. When I say “we” I mean the Hubs. I could not reach the top of it, so he had to do my part (caulk). But that is one more project off the list:

Super anti-climactic, right? But whatever, it was on the list and now it’s not.

Last but not least, I hung a stained glass dragonfly on my slider the other day. The tail is about 4 feet off the floor. Mayhem wanted that thing so badly!

So far, it’s still hanging there, but he has actually been able to touch it a few times so far. I am sure one day he will manage to get it to fall.

Damn kittens.

No Joy

I thought I was gonna have this big exciting post this afternoon. We had a ton of work planned and everything was gonna be great!

That didn’t happen.

At all.

We started with errands, which went seamlessly.

When we got home, we decided to start building the pump box.

And that is where the wheels fell off this wagon. Complete with giving the neighbors a version of the Charles and Margaret show.


What’s the Charles and Margaret show? Well, I’ll tell you. When we bought our first house we lived next door to Charles and Margaret. He was so nice and helpful, and he used to laugh at us for not having a clue as to how to care for a yard. But he taught us. She was pretty much the opposite. Every Saturday morning we would start our day listening to them bicker. Well, not really them, just her. Our favorite, and her most oft repeated line was, “Not there! Over there!” but you have to imagine a mountains of West By-God Virginia accent in a really unpleasant woman’s voice.

Oh my did we get a lot of mileage out of that!

And now, to my everlasting shame, our neighbors were treated to that today.

Because they were out in their yard building a new covered bar.

Of course they were. And probably laughing at us sniping at each other over a stupid block box.

Suffice to say the really neat looking box that I had in my mind did not come to pass. We discovered all kinds of obstacles like cement and wires. The Hubs was trying to give me what I wanted, and that turned out to be wrong. Of course. So he built it to my specs, and then took it apart and built it more betterer.

I had envisioned the box surrounded by white rocks, but in the end because of all the challenges we ran into, I’m going to have to mulch it instead.

Which is fine.

Tomorrow I will liberate more petunias, and next week I will secure another evergreen. Then I will finish the planting and edging. Finally, mulch will be finished.

And I will never go over there again. I’ve decided I pretty much hate that side yard.

Anyway, here is where we are today:

My box is overkill, so I need to zhuzh it up a little somehow. I wanted the blocks against the wall, but again, obstacles. It was all we could do to get the blocks into the space.

Honestly, I kinda want to take it all apart and start over, but I am at a total loss as to how to not make it look like crap.

Maybe I’ll cut out 2 of the blocks and make it slimmer. The real issue is covering the cinderblocks so nothing takes up residence. Maybe I can find 8″ pavers…

Shit hoss.

The more I think about it, the madder I get.


I dug a new garden yesterday:

And today the Hubs planted the last of his potatoes:

The first plot should be ready to at least check to see if there are potatoes bigger than marbles, but no one wants to get in there and look.

My beets should also be ready, but they are not.

Maybe next week.

I’ll leave you with these guys, even though I am really really mad at them today.

Yard Joy

This morning I braved the sub-60s temperatures to get some work done on the side garden.

I planted my hydrangea:

Also in here now are a couple of liberated Mexican Petunias, which the Hubs takes a great deal of pleasure pointing out, are fence jumpers. The neighbors must have an old one, because over near the back fence there are a bunch of volunteers. I’m happy I don’t have to spend money on new plants! If they survive, they should overrun this garden in a few years.

Here’s what’s going on in the herb garden:

I know, not too much! I have not really dedicated a lot of time to this yet. And since it is just below the new AC unit, I am waiting til that is 100% done before I get in here and tame the lot. I had originally planned to make this a bigger semi-circle, and might just do that. I’m hoping the paving bricks I am using for edging go on sale again this year so I can replenish my stock. Last year I got 4/$1. If I can get the same deal I’ll be happy. I’d be able to do the vege gardens as well as this one and whatever else strikes my fancy.

I planted some nasturtium seeds in the side garden. We have had them completely overrun large spaces, climb fences, and also do a whole lot of nada. It’ll be interesting to see what happens here.

Here is where we are so far:

I have some edging, we need to build the pump box and do the gravel, and the rest of the mulching. I had planned to lay cardboard to slow the weeds down, but since I have tiny petunias and seeds, I scrapped that idea. I will do a double layer around the pump to give that area a fighting chance to settle itself.

Once this fence falls down, we will have to replace it, we are thinking of adding a people-gate so we don’t have to walk the entire yard to get back there from this side! I hope it doesn’t fall anytime soon because I really don’t want to waste money on a stupid ugly fence.

I’d prefer to do something like this:

But I’d have to get HOA approval and I think it might break their brains!

So here’s hoping that ugly old fence stands its ground for a long while.

My original garden is humming right along:

I’ve got some daylilies blooming, the azeala finally woke up, blanket flowers are growing, stuff that was supposed to die is coming back, it’s all gonna be spectacular in a couple years! I only got 4 daffodils – or rather leaves – from the dozen I planted. That kinda sucks.

As things start to get crowded, I’ll move them out. I like the idea of an English garden, but I prefer the maintenance of something a little more orderly.

I clearly need more yard art!

Like this:

I’ll bet the Hubs would really enjoy coming home to a yard full of flamingos!

I Got Nuthin’

Last night I had planned to get up and get some planting and whatnot done in the side garden.

I got up and it was 41 degrees.

Yep, not going out there.

OK, that was a convenient excuse. I got up and really didn’t feel like hauling dirt and poop around. I took the day.

The Hubs went to work so I did my noisy chores. I’m not gonna lie, I get a kick out of terrorizing the cats with the vacuum! Mayhem was playing chicken with me, but Havoc chose to hide and I was unable to flush her out. In fact, hours later, I still have not seen her. I guess her hiding place is soundproof.

Sunday we stopped at the granite place to look at some stones. Of course I was completely unprepared with paint chips and wood samples. We just looked.

If price were no object, we both agreed on this slab:

I don’t know how it would look with all the other materials we have going on, but it looks like moving water and that is always a winner. Not sure how it would look honed and leathered, so it may be a non-starter.

This one is the safe bet:

I had planned to make an appointment Monday and see if they would give me ballpark estimates on both and perhaps leather a sample for me. But when I called, the lady who answered said her name was Maryanne, and when I said I wanted to make an appointment, I swear she let out the loudest sigh I have heard in a while.

Mostly I don’t care if people are work-haters, but I have to admit, I have never actually been SIGHED at and it threw me. She told me I could not make an appointment til my cabinets are in. Oh, and they are scheduling in April.

See my issue? If I wait til my cabinets are in, I could be making an appointment a month out from then, plus add the samples and that maybe tacks on another week.

But whatever.

That is where we are.

On cabinets, we were able to manhandle them around the garage:

Now the car fits.

We toyed with the idea of moving one or two into the house in order to get rid of the last old cabinets, but then decided if they got damaged somehow (spilling fountains or whatever), we would not be happy. So, in the garage they stay.

We’ve been talking about a couple of electrical items we want done (and don’t want to do). Today I called a few people and made an appointment for the end of the month to have an electrician come out and do them. He said it would take a day to add a circuit, move a pendant light, drop an internet line, and swap out the stove breaker. He gave me no end of grief about the breaker, though. Maybe it does not need replacing. Since it’s scheduled for the day the Hubs goes to work, he’ll have to write a detailed note about what he wants done so I don’t tell them the wrong thing.

In a perfect world, all this will be done before Brandon gets time to do the cabinets. But in this world, they will happen on the same day and everyone will be tripping all over each other.

A Cabinet

This morning we met Brandon at the crack of 9 to pick up our cabinets.

There was a little bit of consternation on my part (and maybe Brandon’s as well), when they brought out 3 palettes of really big boxes.

I could not see how all those boxes were gonna fit on a dinky trailer.

But fit they did. All of them.

They all got tied down and then off we went toward home.

After about 30 uneventful minutes, Brandon was backing into the driveway. We unloaded all the boxes and Brandon offered to install some cabinets.

He kept saying things like, “On my day off, I’ll…”

But we were a little desperate and asked him to install the pantry cabinet. He agreed. It took him about an hour to get that thing in the corner, leveled, and secured.

Since you ask, I AM kicking myself that I didn’t get that last part painted. In my defense, we only took that last old cabinet out last night. I spent the evening mudding and sanding and snotting. It was about 11:30 when I finally finished. I should have at least painted the part you can see. Now I’ll have to tape it all up so I don’t get paint on the cabinet.

Here are the rest of the cabinets:

It’s gonna be a minute til Brandon can install them. Which means it’ll be a minute til I can get my car back in here! The Hubs thinks things can be consolidated and the car will fit.

Sure, I used to be great at Tetris, let’s do this!

After Brandon left, I found I was completely spent. I mean weird, right? I didn’t actually do anything but stress all morning. We figured after lunch we would feel differently.


I did drag the rest of my pump blocks onto some cardboard and put a first coat on them. I can’t be bothered to do a second one, though.

So much for setting them all up tomorrow!

The Hubs added some knobs to the pantry cabinet:

There is not a lot of contrast here, but I like the glass glob knobs, so they’ll stay til I hate them.

We put the shelves in:

At some point, this will be jammed full of stuff that may or may not stay in here. Right now it will be good to have some kitchen stuff out of the garage and out of the dining room.

I’ll be completely honest here. I don’t love this cabinet. I like the color, I’m OK about the style (I wanted flat doors), but I am not a fan of giant cabinets. I know their value, and the Hubs drove this one into being here. There is supposed to be a cabinet over the fridge, but I am not 100% sure it will work with the space we have. Brandon already identified a pretty important piece that is missing, so I’ll be on a wild hunt for that next week. Maybe if the fridge is snugged up to the cabinet it will all fit together, I dunno. I’m leaving it to better people to figure out. Maybe it’ll look good when it’s all complete. Right now it looks janky.

In the meanwhile, that unpainted stripe is probably gonna make me crazy.


As everyone in the free world could have predicted, my termite claim was denied.


Because, as the claim guy told me, “If you see a termite, immediately rip out all your drywall and check for damage, then call us and we’ll come out when we’re good and ready and tell you if the damage qualifies. Which it won’t. Then it’s on you to re-drywall and paint your place at your expense. But please be sure to continue to pay extra for this coverage on the off chance we decide to pay you a couple bucks for a 2×4.”

Needless to say I was irritated.

Because the claim was denied?

No, I expected that.

I was irritated because I have waited over a month for this. And the first thing he said when I answered was, “I should have called you back 2 weeks ago, but your file was mislaid.”

Really? By whom? How? I have had that dickhead Chris supposedly emailing you for updates every week or so.

Yesterday I called the manager, and all of a sudden there is action?

WTFEver you bunch of assholes.

So for about an hour I was totally over it, all the fight is gone. The Hubs told me to write a letter, which I don’t even care enough to do.

And then…

“Please take our survey.”

So I did.

And that made me feel better.

Do I think for a moment anyone at all will be held accountable?

Of course not, this is not my first day out of the box.

Eventually I will call and drop their worthless claims coverage. And if I am still even moderately irritated, I will call someone else and have them do pest control.

Suck it Terminix.

To be completely honest, while all this was going down, I was texting with Brandon about my cabinets. Consequently, I may not have been paying 100% attention to whatever the jerk on the phone was blathering on about.

Upshot: Cabinets are in and we will be loading them up on Saturday. I have no clue when they will be installed.

I find I am not able to get sufficiently excited about this development at the moment.

I feel sort of like,

Yay, cabinets are in. BFD.

The kittens pulled their water fountain over again this morning, that started the day off right. If anyone is interested in a slightly used kitten, let me know, I’ll be happy to box one up and ship it off to you.

Just kidding.

A little.

Let’s roll back to yesterday because this day kinda sucks.

I did some yardwork. I have a tip for you:

If it’s humid and over 75, jeans are NOT a good choice.

I planted some herbs:

That one on the bottom right was assaulted the other night. It’s catnip, we don’t know if a cat is hungover somewhere, something stepped on it, or what. The one behind it was right next to it and is fine. Weird. This morning they all seemed perky, so this seems to have been a one-and-done.

There’s also a couple of dill plants, and a cilantro. This is pretty much an experiment to see what will grow here, but I did amend the soil with cow poop, compost, and peat moss.

I also put some beet seeds and pepper plants in my newest vege garden:

I wonder if they will grow. I don’t know if the rest of this patch will be more potatoes or tomatoes. I guess it depends who digs a hole first!

I started the side garden. It’s slow going because there are a ton of obstacles to deal with.

I dug up a volunteer Mexican Petunia and relocated it:

I’ll give it a few weeks to see if survives. If it does, I’ll dig the rest and either plant them or re-home them.

My plan was to get to the pump:

Thankfully, there is not much grass, and the soil is loose, I have no idea what pitfalls lie just below the surface of this area. I did a little surface skimming and some amending of this area. I got the bricks in and then planted the new camellia (at least I think that is what this is:

Next time I go out, maybe Friday, I’ll lay down some cardboard and then mulch to just past the petunia. Once I finish painting all the blocks, we will rejigger what is there and then gravel or mulch around it.

We put a lot of thought into doing a screening bench that we could put potted plants on, but when we did the measuring, it just wasn’t feasible as the green cap you see in this pic is about hip-high. For now we’re gonna do plantings and then see how the summer and fall unfold while we have more time to pay attention to it.

That is if this house stops lighting fires for us to put out.

I don’t have high hopes for that.

Shed AC

Sunday we actually put the AC unit into the shed wall and nobody died.

I say this because when we were done the Hubs said, “Well that went better than anticipated.”

Which made me post-project anxious. I wasn’t really aware of all the pitfalls he was planning.

Anyway, it’s in.

I did as expected and stood around waiting for requests. I got tools, handed stuff to him and just generally stood around and took pictures.

This is before anything happened:

Framing all installed:

Cutting the hole:

There’s a hole in the shed!

Unit installed:

It works!

After that got Great Stuffed, we proceeded to finish the insulating:

We tacked up the cord, so it doesn’t sag. Did a little cleaning, and viola, the shed is all neat and tidy.

Yeah, it’s really not. But the AC is in and the insulation is finished.

Today’s project was painting blocks.

I know, my life is like a beacon of glory, right? Everyone wants to be me.

These are part of the platform for the well pump. I still have the current blocks to do, but I need to free them from their duty of holding up the pump, first. This is a start on the project that will likely last the rest of the week.

I finally picked up some peat moss and cow poop. Tomorrow I will mix it all together and do some planting. I have some herbs, some peppers, and some flowers to get into the ground. Hopefully winter is done and I won’t lose them.

Finally, I have some knitting progress to report.

I started this shawl to do while watching TV:

It’s a tiny bit more intense at the startup, so it’s been sitting in its bag while I work on my sweater. I’ll get back to this at some point.

Sweater progress:

I was going along fine til I got to the neck shaping. The lace up there isn’t quite as bad as it looks here, but it’s not perfect either because of the binding off instructions. Normally I would get all weird and start ripping it out, but the Hubs pointed out that every knitter makes awful sweaters at the beginning. Since this is pretty much the beginning for me, I’m just calling it “experience” and letting it go. I really like this yarn, Brimfield by Valley Yarns, it’s soft and very workable, but I’m not all that happy with the stitch definition. For a practice sweater, it’s not all that terrible.

Amazing Day

The Hubs told me to write about what a perfect day I had with him.

But I don’t want you guys to be jealous, so…

Oh, before I forget, today is our 1-year anniversary!

It seems like about 50 years, but it’s actually only been one whole year that we have been in this house.

I am honestly a little surprised we survived it. So, so, so many things have caught us off guard this year.

One year ago today, we were moving ourselves. It took about 10 trips, and while we were hauling, there was a team of 3 working on the quarter round moldings all over the house. It was barely controlled chaos and looking back, I can’t say there weren’t warning signs.

But here we are, 1 year into this journey. In some ways we are further along the road than I thought we’d be. We were hoping to put some of the updates off, but that didn’t work out so well. There were so many cascading failures, one thing pretty much rolled into the next.

Enough of that.

Last night we put up the last 2 shelves. The upper part of the kitchen is pretty much done.

The pipes are out of whack, and there was a load of swearing to get them up. We were not able to block this wall, so we took what we could get. Look how neat it all looks. That will NOT last!

Not sure what I’m gonna put on this top shelf yet, but it’s up!

That junction box cover is barely noticeable once the Hubs got it back on the wall.

The Hubs set up some knife intimidation:

Which makes me wonder where the heck all my other knives got to!

Today was a chore day, some mowing, some yard planning and cleanup. The Hubs got the sprinkler system up and running.

Tomorrow we’ll be installing the AC unit in the shed. I’m really not looking forward to that. I have this thing about cutting holes in my house, and it’s transferring itself to the shed. We have to cut a hole in the wall to get the unit installed. It just seems like a disaster waiting to happen. But the Hubs is confident he can make it happen.

I’m sure it’ll be fine.

I’d like to not look and work on my side garden, but I think it’s gonna be necessary for me to stand around and offer unwanted suggestions. Maybe help, too.

My cabinets were supposed to be loaded for delivery yesterday. I’m cautiously optimistic, you know because everything is running so tight these days.

I texted that miserable little twerp from Terminix on Thursday to ask about the claim. In true asshat fashion, he responded (eventually) like it was someone else’s fault and if they didn’t contact me Friday, to let him know.

They didn’t.

I let him know.


I also called about my screens and window weight. Anisha was as bitchy as ever with her standard, “They won’t respond to me.” I told her I’d call again next week.

I’m sure she looks forward to our little chats.

I had reason to email Scott about the AC unit in our bedroom maybe having a thermostat issue. Crickets there as well.

I cannot for the life of me understand why people just don’t get it. Do what you promise and I won’t bother you anymore.

OK, something REALLY funny happened yesterday. You might not appreciate it, but we are STILL laughing about it! And yes, I bought a LOT.

Watch it and laugh!
