Today was to be a day of rest and prep so that things would not be hard when I come home from the hospital tomorrow.
Instead I have been running a mad woman.
Last evening I finally got hold of the service manager at the store who sold me my dishwasher. He felt me did not have to return my call even though I asked him to. Now get this... my appt with the tech is scheduled for Friday. The service manager tells me he does not know why I am complaining since he will be there tomorrow. Tomorrow was never discussed with the servicing company and myself. So I ask nicely, at what point do I have to start getting UGLY and going above his head to get a new dishwasher.. This answer still floors me... "when the service tech says he can't fix it anymore". After them spending close to 2500 in parts and labor and this still keeps breaking down, was it really this simple?
I am sure that will not fly if th tech tells him that today.
I then call Fisher Paykels headquarters and give them my file number and as the agent reads it.. she is like.. oh my, oh my.. Then I update her on the newest downtime and service orders since then. She needs the paper work faxed to her and then another manager will review it. The last manager who reviewed it told me no new machine unless this was still acting up OR my extended warranty was finished. We shall see what happens now.
So I am fired up. I head up to my sons room and start to clean it gathering up all this laundry, throwing away trash. I do two loads of clothes last night.
This morning, I could not sleep thinking of them making my leg numb while I was still away. So I got up and walked early. came back and striped our bed, made a list of everything I wanted to accomplish today..
So far, I have called the service company to fax over the service records to FP, then headed out to walmart to get pants large enough to fit over the cast, grocery store one, ENT's office, then over to the other side of town to the ND's office to get weighed and measured, to pharmacy one, then off to get gas, drove another 15 miles into Greenville to go to first Barnes and Noble, then off to Lowe's, petsmart, another barnes and noble, AC moore, back 18 miles to another grocery store, another pharmacy and then finally home. Did that all in 4 hours , 10 minutes.
Now load 4 is in the washer, browning meat for veggie beef soup for tomorrow night, making my 3 galloon supply of tea, cleaning around things, hopefully will be able to clean out the refrigerator today as well as do 4 more loads of laundry.
After that I plan to soak in the tub as long as I can. This will be my last soak until either Nov 25 or Dec 9th.
Hoping I can get some sleep. Have to be up at 5 am so i can get in a small walk before we leave at 630.
Will update tomorrow after I get home.
