I know it's been a while since I last posted. However, this time I will not be apologizing for the delay, as I'm way too tired. The reason for the delay was....you guessed it, I moved! As excited as I was about the process (in the last day before the event that is), it turned out to be not so peachy. All of my stuff is currently in the "garage", except for my bed, and some clothes (and this computer). I knew that there was going to be some rehab work in the basement, I just wasn't quite ready for everything that has been involved in bringing it back to a habitable place to reside.
Whoever designed this house was clearly not thinking about future residents. For example: my bedroom. There are three outlets in it. All of which are placed 4 feet above the floor, and on one wall, located about one and a half feet apart from each other! What's the hell is up with that?! Okay, my only thought is that that room was initially used as a wood shop, with a work bench. I guess it could have been a computer room, but this house kind of out dates the age of PC's as we know them today. The room also gets rather chilly as well. That is all fine and dandy while I'm sleeping, but the initial removal of my blanket in the morning is quite the shiver inducing event. It wakes up my body, but makes my eyes and feet want nothing more than to crawl back under the covers. Oh, did I mention that the floor is currently made of granite tile? I don't think I did. Not to worry too much though, it will be carpeted soon enough. I do like the look of the flooring, but for a subterranean room they just don't work well. Ya know?
The move itself went fairly well however. Except for that whole thing of not being able to bring any of my stuff inside yet! Okay, okay, it's only for a little while longer (deep breath). I guess it's really better that way though, seeing as there was an incident with a mouse this weekend. After removing a lot more of the crap that the last underground residents, and some older previous housemates left behind, a mouse got in. Marley used to be much better at catching such rodents, but I fear that in his later years, he just doesn't care much anymore. However, mouse traps were purchased, and one of them worked. On the other hand, I think that the mold in the carpeting I removed, and the pillows I helped to dispose of (don't ask), and the bed that has removed as well, has more to do with the one off feeling I've had the last few days than that mouse did. On the bright side, the work in the basement is very near complete, and now it's just a matter of waiting for the carpet installers to show up, hopefully sooner than later! As for the temp in my bedroom, there is a space heater floating around here somewhere, I just don't like the looks of it so I have not made any use of it. Instead I try to think back to my old bedroom in Boxwood, during the winter. It doesn't help much, but just enough to get me out of bed, so I can't knock it.
Today it took me over an hour to get to work. That was due to my choice of roads, so oh well. The amazing part is that one of my drivers called me to inform me that he got stuck by a freight train, and a few minutes later my other driver sent me a text to let me know he had just been pulled over, and would be there asap! I was only 10 minutes late, and I beat both drivers there by a good 10 minutes as well! But hey, considering I'm almost always 15 minutes early, I rarely take any vacation time, and I almost never take any sick days, I deserve to be late once or twice a year........right? RIGHT! Okay, I could go on quite a bit more about all the happenings this weekend and beyond, but I am in need of some shut eye!
I will try to keep you all posted more regularly, but until I am fully situated I can't make any promises. I hope you are all doing well, or at least fairly well!
Until next time, peace out y'all!
