2:50 p.m., Wednesday the 6th
At a little after 2:00 p.m. yesterday, the carpet guys were done with their work. The new carpet looks good. The old carpet had a smell in a place or two, apparently where the previous owners' pet had gone pee pee and the smell persisted even after the carpet was cleaned. I guess the previous owners passed away, and their kids sold the house (to us).
Today and tomorrow, the air conditioning guys were and will be here, to install central air. It sounds like they are going to remove the swamp cooler, which seems fine. They've left for today, and will be back at 7:00 or 8:00 a.m. tomorrow. So I'm not quite done having my furniture moved around. The fuse box is in my bedroom. So until the A/C job is completely done, my computer and I are in the living room. Sigh, one more day and then me and my stuff can finally return to their desired positions. For heat in the winter I suspect we'll rely on the furnace that we already have -- but don't quote me on that. Sometimes the plan gets tweaked in transit.
Yesterday was a long day for me, so I played another bot game and wouldn't you know it, lost again. I guess for my next move I'll demote myself back to the 1300-point bots. Not sure how low I'll have to go before I start winning some games again. It's depressing, I feel like such a pathetic failure. Tomorrow will be another long day, so, I guess another bot game [shudder].
SB finished fixing my computer desk yesterday. To do that, she needed to buy some screws, so she went out and I went too, we got the screws at our local True Value hardware store; after that we got takeout for dinner at a local Indian restaurant. Really good food, but expensive, we won't be able to do that often.
