Another yucky week despite the wonderful weather — I bought a new computer but it’s still at the store getting the data from my dead hard drive transferred. They said it would take 24 hours. It took four days. That’s not good. This has the makings of a great blog post.
Kitchen update — The long awaited kitchen window has not come in nor has there been a scheduled date so we had the contractor install the old window at a lower height. The original appeared to be hanging off the ceiling and I couldn’t see out. Either there should be a window I can see out or no window at all. The irony is that reinstalling the existing window could have been done seven months ago and all would be done. Maybe I’m a slow learner or maybe people don’t speak the truth about delivery times. Remember my post on the useless term “end of the month.”
An invasion? — On Friday at 7:10 a.m. a tree service came with a convoy of eight super huge trucks. Some were dump trucks and some were sporting military grade implements to attack the dead trees in the wooded area that borders our yard. The noise was mind numbing. I couldn’t think (which is hard enough that early on a normal day). The good news is that with all that equipment and the army of men that came along they were in and out in a few hours.
More bad luck — The recently installed fireplace surround will have to be removed. The company that put the granite around the firebox did not allow enough clearance to remove the front for servicing. (It’s a gas fireplace.) The beloved husband removed the first one he put in to adjust for building codes so this will be the third installation after the granite is recut. One step forward and two steps back.
Ending with an upbeat note — This weekend marks the one year anniversary of moving into our current home. We had a very snowy February last year. We had 26 inches the week prior to the move and then it kept snowing every week. This year the snow storms have been south of us. So far we’ve missed most of them. This week we were blessed with spring like weather. It’s starting the ping pong of warm days followed by cold days, then back to warm. We usually go through that before spring settles in. At least there are no single digits in the forecast. New update! Although we were expected to get a covering overnight, we got five inches. Sigh!
So how was your week?
