I’m sitting here in a somewhat less-cluttered sitting room, fresh from a lovely shower, waiting for my man to get home. When he does, we’ll be going back up to the apartment one last time.
It’s so nice to have our own sitting room right off the bedroom. This is an even better “nest” than I was able to have in our bedroom! I can go from bedroom to shower to sitting room with nary a worry about clothing, no matter who might be here.
I think all the furniture that will be in our suite is here now. The smaller closet is going to become a server closet, which means it needs more shelves.
The cable TV installer will be here tomorrow. We’re going to have a jack put in here in case we do ever want to put a TV in here. I was thinking about trying to put a TV in the closet, so we wouldn’t see it unless we wanted to do so. Unfortunately, that’s in a place where it couldn’t be seen from the bed. Maybe a rolling cart of some sort? But there is one step down to the bedroom from the sitting room, so that might not work so well, either.
Since we don’t have a TV for this room, it isn’t a major thing right now. We are going to put the stereo that used to be in the living room in here, though, so I need to find room for it. curiousmay9 has a surround sound system that’s going in this living room.
With help from runbunny, we moved furniture around last night so that the living room is much more usable. We can even get to one side of the dining room table to eat at it! There’s a LOT of seating in the living room, with two big couches, two loveseats, and two armchairs. Throw in two ottomans, at least three tables, and an entertainment center and you can imagine that things are crowded right now. curiousmay9 thinks she should be able to get the flooring done next weekend, though. (She’s going out of town this weekend.)
Runbunny and curiousmay9 also widened the laundry room door and got the washer and dryer in place. They then discovered that the plug on the dryer doesn’t match the available receptacle. They got an adapter, but it will require some wiring work to install, so it’ll have to wait ’til curiousmay9 is home from work. I started to wash a load of towels and realized that the laundry supplies didn’t make it here last night.
All of the PCs are here, but not set up yet. We were so exhausted last night that nothing was unloaded. My sweet sambear unloaded both vehicles early this morning all by his lonesome 🙁
I slept ’til after 12:30, and Katie didn’t wake ’til 4:30! I’d been awake long enough to take pain meds earlier today, but she was asleep from about midnight ’til 4:30 pm. Yes, she needed every minute of that rest. She’s far bouncier and in a much better mood, now.
We did miss my class and Katie’s orthodontic appointment. (sigh) My grades are really going to suck this semester! I’ll deal, obviously. Somehow. I guess this is one way to lose the perfectionism, hmm?
Happy News: sambear stopped at a payphone on the way home last night to check in. For some reason, he had his Palm keyboard in hand. He left it on top of the payphone and didn’t realize that ’til he was home. Miracle of miracles — he went back several hours later and it was still there! YAY!
The drain in our shower is going to need roto-rootering or something of the sort—it just won’t drain. There’s about 4″ of water standing in it now, despite me having plunged it repeatedly. We’ve used Draino. We’ve taken out the drain mechanism to check for anything clogging it (nope). So the next step is to rent a snake and try that.
The shower is of an odd design. I intend to write more about it when I have a picture to show you.
