More Moving Talk

Ever have one of those days when you’ve been extreme­ly busy, but feel like you did­n’t real­ly get any­thing done?

I know, as I look back over my task list, that I did accom­plish things. Sig­nif­i­cant things. Things that involved many phone calls and there­fore sapped large quan­ti­ties of ener­gy from this intro­vert. I also had a love­ly vis­it with broth­er-of-choice Ron. 

But oth­er than clean­ing the kitchen and doing some laun­dry and oth­er things like that, there’s noth­ing to real­ly *show* for all that work. And that isn’t as sat­is­fy­ing as say­ing, “I packed ten box­es!” or, “I got this whole quad­rant stitched” or see­ing a por­tion of a clos­et cleaned out.

We all got hair­cuts yes­ter­day. Our nor­mal hair­dress­er had a baby, so she’s off being mater­nal. We are very much spoiled by her (which is why we’ve con­tin­ued to dri­ve a fair piece to see her). I don’t like what the new woman did to my hair. It isn’t hor­rif­ic, but it isn’t *right* either. There’s absolute­ly no way I’m about to let her col­or it. Yes, it needs col­or­ing, but I’ll just wait until Wende is back, thankyouverymuch.

Our phone and cable modem provider does not ser­vice the new apart­ment com­plex. They’d told me they did before, so we could just trans­fer our account. When I called to actu­al­ly start doing so, the sto­ry was dif­fer­ent. So I went about the process of get­ting new accounts lined up and mak­ing sure the pow­er will be switched into our name on time and so on. We won’t be able to keep the cur­rent phone number—we’d hoped that we could. We’re mov­ing too far away, though, and the exchange is too dif­fer­ent. And we’re going to expe­ri­ence a broad­band gap—eeek! Five days or so, at least, using a dial-up connection!

I did call Earth­link about their DSL ser­vice, which we could get at the new loca­tion. The sales guy could­n’t give me one rea­son to choose them over hav­ing Bell­south as our DSL line provider and ISP for sim­plic­i­ty’s sake. Per­haps some­one should explain the whole “sales” con­cept to these people?

Ron men­tioned that he has a fair­ly new HP col­or print­er that he grabbed when some­one else was putting it in the dump­ster. He asked the fel­low what was wrong with it, and the guy said, “It got jammed and I did­n’t know how to fix it, so I bought a new one.” Wow. That’s quite a paper jam!

We’re going to set the 4th bed­room up as an office unless real_pochacco isn’t with us. We’d like to use the futon as a sofa/guest bed in there, but we need a frame for it. Any­one who has a frame they want to be rid of, please let us know! 🙂
