Day 4: Saturday: We ran errands after we got home. We did laundry, and we went to a late movie…late for us.
Day 5: Sunday: We have been sitting on the sofa squished behind a mountain of stuff in front of the TV. Yes, the sofa’s very comfortable. No, neither of us could get out of it without a struggle. Instead of going to the very expensive place where we got the first sofa, we drove to IKEA. After lunch, we walked among the sofas. I wanted just what we had without the big rounded arms. Nope, they didn’t have that. So we bought the same old thing and had it delivered. We looked at dressers too. He wants to move into my closet after getting rid of stuff.
Day 6: Monday: A day on vacation with the power off. Back to IKEA we went in Grumpy, and he bought a smaller dresser than the one he has…a ruined old waterfall. The new one fits perfectly into the carpet footprint. I read, he got permission to paint one wall, and he spackled holes throughout the house. I read some more. He got permission to move the big old white bookcase back on it’s wall. I scrubbed it. Went to bed early.
Day 7: Tuesday: The inspectors are to be here either today or tomorrow. Once the new stuff passes the city inspection, it is drywall, patch, and paint time. Us? I found a manager and reminded them that their guys put our DSL and phone line behind a wall. Almost immediately a guy appeared and is getting everything out in the open. G is talking to a manager about one screen that’s two inches too small. I’m putting cookbooks away. We inch toward a home.
