Seriously p****d right now. I stayed at home all day and waited -- and the inspector never showed. No notice they needed to reschedule. And I even phoned the office in the morning to request repairs. I could certainly have been notified then. Believe me, they're getting a phone call in the morning.
However, there are a few pluses. Not the least of them is that my apartment is the cleanest it's been in ages. I can actually get to the bedroom closet door now! Also (and this will sound like a very bad sitcom), I found a lot of stuff I didn't know I had. A missing pan lid turned up behind my stand mixer, and a missing boning knife was hiding between the counter and the refrigerator. I had also squirreled several bags of canned stuff in the bedroom (don't ask), and I found out that I'm positively swimming in cans of tomatoes, hominy, fish and beans. So it's definitely time for some soups and chili. First up on Saturday is my favorite hominy and Italian sausage soup with some cornbread or corn muffins. I'm sorry, but fresh soup needs fresh bread or muffins. And as discussed before, I seriously love cornbread.
Of course, there's still a bunch I need to do. I suspect Amelia Earhart may be hiding in the bedroom closet, so it badly needs cleaning. Also, the laundry on the couch may be clean but it obviously doesn't belong on the couch!
But at least I can find the bed again. And I can open the front door wide and open the blinds.
Too much has happened. I'm just ready for a weekend collapse.
