Oh what fun!!!

Monday, September 23, 2013

Well, b.s. was still up this am but not enough to stop me.

I invited my niece over to make chow, and she was too busy, but she did show up tonite with some milk crates, that she got from my ex-sil so all I have to do is buy some 8 ft. boards and make shelving to store my wool on, so it is all visible and readily accessible...I have a front porch, with 2 desks in it, may leave it there or take it upstairs... good thing about having extra rooms...

Anyway, minor plumbing emergency after we went out and made 12 stops at various places over a 3 hr. period. Water leaking thru the bedroom ceiling, which dh traced back to a leak in the pipe to bathtub upstairs, so niece and her dh arrived and they figured out where to shut things off at, now we're dehumidifying the upstairs carpet. Dh thinks he can make the repairs himself, hope he's right!!!

In the a.m, I have to go for bloodwork and a pap test at the hospital. Then a couple hours off, if it doesn't take too long, till my student at 2, and then a couple more hours off and a meeting to take the training for the Walkabout program at 6:30, here at the library. And what we got organized today was for the guys to come from oil company and level off the oil tank and then we call and they will deliver oil, and after they do that....yes, it all has to be done in one step at a time increments, we call them again and they will make an appt to come clean the furnace. Also, they gave me the name of a technician to come and inspect the wood pellet stove and chimney, this all needs to be done by Oct. 10, to comply with insurance regulations.... nothing like leaving it all till the last minute... and everyone else has done the same thing, cuz they are booking into Nov. for the furnace cleanings.... big bucks all out at once...

Needless to say, weird eating today. I have the last batch of chow setting and hope niece comes over to do it with me, as she will probably receiving quite a few bottles of it, and I think people should have to work for things and not get everything given to them... though she did give me a couple dozen bottles.... see what excuse she comes up with.. not that it's hard to do, but she should be helping....

No walk for Buddy and I today, rain was coming down like the skies split open..

    I chuckled when you said that DH would fix the leak - it just came out as I remembered my DH promising me that he'd fix the leak in the roof about 13 years ago. Guess who still has the leaky roof? Not me!

Mom and big sister were in a huff this weekend. Mom lent a phone card to her for EMERGENCIES. Every time Mom went to use the card, there were no minutes. Big sister says that if she gives card back, she can't use her phone. ???!!!??? They are both retired and on a fixed income. I love my big sister, but...you'd have to meet her. Despite her dark hair, she is the "dumb blond" who also happens to be Polish. I called her and asked her how the card works. She tells me - she called the phone number on the back WHICH IS THE EXACT NUMBER MY MOM CALLS and punches in the code number WHICH IS THE EXACT NUMBER MOM USES and calls the number. So, how does she put more minutes on it? "I don't know...I never had to do it." And then she tells me Mom is getting forgetful. And to think that I missed all this when I lived in Alabama.
