This morning, I woke up around 5:30 am, with my head in a block of snot concrete. Steamed my sorry ass for a while to loosen stuff up, read for a couple of hours, and went back to bed.
Later on, it was back to the house, where I took apart the ceiling fans so we could clean and paint around them on the ceiling. Next up, more taping, sanding, and filling holes with spackle. Then, yet another trip to Home Depot; I know where everything is now, so as long as I use the self-checkout, I don't have to actually interact with any primates there, which is good.
Our rat guy came by, gave us a bug treatment, set traps, and told us that we have a leaky roof, just in time for a killer-ass thunderstorm tonight. Looks like it might hold for a while, though, so, we'll see how that goes.
Had dinner at Magnolia, watched some big lightning strikes all around, and had a nice little walk home trough the storm.
So, I'm not hungry any more, but now I'm tired, sick, wet, and full. I think a movie is in order, then beds. Putting in Black Christmas. Mmmm, young Margot Kidder.
This just in: the policy that the sellers had to take out doesn't cover the roof. Looks like we get to fix the roof ourselves. Yay. Plus, i think we decided not to get the tankless water heater - we can only find one or two people willing to even think about installing it, and then it'll cost like a thousand bucks, plus $500 for the heater itself, and hey! We can spend all that money on the roof now! Oh, joy.(March 25, 2003 08:15 PM)
