~Talked to automated cable lady voice for 18 minutes with no other choice for a live agent.
~Finally talked to a live agent with the demeanor of... well, nothing I can put there will avoid offending all possible parties. Just not a good demeanor.
~Convinced live agent after 38 minutes that I just wanted to go to a location and switch boxes. Got the location address, 3 minutes from here. *sigh*

  2. I am going to have to agree with M anyone who buys DP does rule. You had quite the busy day. My Monday was sleep in sit on the couch all day playing on the computer went to dinner and saw Mama Mia. Slightly less productive then yours. :o)

  3. Since we found yesterday that our AC condensation line was clogged (rust) and had soaked and ruined the floor of the furnace room, I started out yesterday afternoon with the AC man. Furnace,AC coil, Water heater and pressure tank old and need replacement. Got furnace estimate. Outside at 7:00 this morning to pick Japanese beetles off the garden veggies and fruit trees. Quick shower and cereal. Plumber here at 8; emptied closets adjoining furnace room, carpenter here at 9. more estimates. Called furnace company to order new electric furnace. called Lowes to order water heater; called Family Center to order well pressure tank -- all in same room whose floor is demolished.What a blessing we have the $$ to pay for it! Called refrigerator repair because NEW ice maker is leaking. He'll be out in the morning. Made 6 ministry phone calls. Read/answered about 40 emails. Made lunch for fam. Bible reading. Took up vinyl in damaged room. Bleached molded areas. Selected paint for walls.(some of RK's leftovers). Picked more beetles from flowering shrub. made supper.30-minute counseling call from confused lady. made another ministry call. worked on JC's transcript. Read blogs and here I am! Will fix more food when RP gets home from basketball.

  4. we know that the crazy busyness runs in the family...all I did today was sit in a house with no electric from 8:30a-5:00p...we had super duper storms all morning and stir crazy kids all day. did do a bit of housework, but nothing like your list!
