Running like mad.
09 February 2013 | Denver, etc.
Sunny and oh, so cold!
Boy has my blood thinned. It's COLD here and due to get colder over the next couple of days. Highs of 32!!
Been driving around like mad getting things on the list. Thursday morning was waiting for the GE repairman to take a look at our dead frig. Compressor is gone. OK, let's get it fixed as a new one would be a whole lot more. Ceiling repairman was next. The new roof we had installed a couple of years ago has leaked(previous roof never did). I called the roofer several weeks ago to have the job scheduled so they couldn't tell me they had no time. He showed up and went to work. Had to stop at 1400 as the new plaster had to dry. Would be back on Friday morning. to finish it up. Then off on errands.
I have four pages of things in catagories-- buy([parts, etc), order(internet), food, and other stuff. Didn't get very far on Thursday but did get a throw away phone(wouldn't activate) and finally got my Virgin Mobile up and running for internet after spending 90 minutes on hold while getting Best Buy to help me out since they sold me the original dongle 15 months ago. Got home about 2000. Long day.
Friday was ceiling man back. Left him to do the job while I headed for the doctor for blood tests before my appointment on Monday. Then over to walmart to get the phone fixed. Off to Apple for service work and updates. They had to keep one computer to get it fixed and the second to install a new operating system so the two can talk to each other. Off to Tokyo Joes for lunch. Nice spicy curry--YUM!!! Down to West Marine, back to Office Depot, Home Depot, REI(new head lamps that are water proof) and back to Apple to get one computer. Back to walmart for more things on the list and then to Wood workers supply for a hinge I need to fix the nav station lid. No luck so off to Rockler on Saturday.
Picked up some Qdoba chips and queso for dinner and off to the house. Got there only to find that now the Virgin Dongle won't work on the computer. Headed back to Best Buy but finally figured out it may be the computer and not the dongle. Made another appointment at Apple for 1800 Saturday(today)to see if we can get this fixed.
Now at McD's for breakfast since they have internet and I need it.
More to come of me running around like a chicken with his head cup off. Surprised me that driving a car came back like I'd never been away. All the pent up rage of civilization behind the wheel came back just fine so I know I'm fitting in fine with the other drivers around me.
