Let’s see, we’re into day… oh, it doesn’t matter now, I lost count! But we’re almost done! We’re still sharing Brian’s shower, but the kitchen is up and running and we have plumbing in our bathroom. We have the TVs all hooked up, although we’re missing one of the remotes. As soon as we get the big bathtub out of the garage I think I can get my car in there! And speaking of the kitchen… I bought all new Kitchenaid appliances – very nice, top of the line. The microwave is fine, the oven is fine (although it won’t broil with the door open which bugs me). But the trash compactor came making a thumping noise. The freezer door is frosting over near the ice maker. And the dishwasher door won’t latch closed. So 3 of the 5 appliance I bought had problems! Kitchenaid sent a repairman. He fixed the trash compactor, but said we have to wait for a new door for the freezer, and we have to order a new latch for the dishwasher. I asked the repairman if he had seen this kind of thing before, and he said that Kitchenaid was always really good, very reputable, until Whirlpool bought them out. Hmmm…. I didn’t know that! I thought Whirlpool was good – didn’t they buy out Maytag? I can’t keep track of all this corporate stuff. Anyhow – my kitchen it getting fixed, and when it is I’ll be happy. But for now I’m frustrated. It’s not like this stuff was cheap. Right now I feel like the tile guys are living with us. They’re pleasant enough – but it would be nice to have the house to ourselves. They’re down to just our shower, and it’s a big job. My cat still hasn’t recovered. Cats are notoriously bad with change, and my cat, having lived in the same house for all of her life and never going far from my bedroom, is quite the prima donna. It’s going to take some time for her to get used to this place. We’ve been here 2 weeks now… I don’t know how long it’s going to take – she’s pretty much just hiding in the laundry room or my closet. And I discovered ebay! Well, I knew all about ebay, but now I have actually gone on there and bought stuff – and it is very cool. I bought some rugs from Persian Village – the prices are amazing! Actually, I have to go check on one of my bids now. More later!
