Thread: How Was Your Day? Edition 18

  1. #301
    Just put in an order for a new computer through Amazon Prime--I couldn't believe the luck--they had a system close to what I was looking for as a replacement for my aging system and it's on sale. I'm expecting it Weds. next week. Then comes the fun of migrating everything over. Backing docs and everything I can to OneDrive so that should smooth the transition somewhat. Finished grading midterms for three of my classes and the fourth one gets theirs in a couple of weeks. Doctor's appointment tomorrow--just a standard check up this time, thankfully. Ablation surgery is scheduled for the end of the month unless something happens to change that. Web conference in half an hour--Woodrow Wilson and WW 1 today.

    Hoo boy.
    Yesterday we had the heating & air conditioning folks over to replace both our furnace and our central A/C unit. That went smoothly, and they got the job done in one day.
    This morning, I got up and saw a Post-It note my brother had put on the bathroom mirror. It said: NO HOT WATER! It turns out our 9-year-old water heater chose last night to "give up the ghost," forcing my brother to take another day off work & summon a plumber. Said plumber arrived around noon and said, yes, the heater was shot and needed replacing. Fortunately, he had a new one in his truck and installed it for us. Mom was not happy about spending more money, but we had no other choice.
    And yes, the heater that died was indeed the one that gave out on us on New Year's Eve some years ago, because my brother discovered that the plumber who installed that one wrote the installation date on it: "1-1-11."
    This threw all our plans out the window, especially mine, as I was going to do my laundry today. I'll just have to do it tomorrow, after Mom gets her last load washed.
    This evening after dinner, I balanced and updated my checkbook, then paid a few bills.
    Still no luck finding a new job yet....

    We signed closing papers to refinance our mortgage on the condo today. Our monthly payment goes up by $500, but we'll be finished in 15 years instead of the 26 we still had on the old loan.

    Another day at work. This work is very easy though. Mostly it's just a mass of government paperwork.

    Yesterday, we had a heating serviceman out to replace the thermostat on our new heating/AC system. The one they originally installed was a rather complex, touch-screen model that had some automatic programing for operation - but no manual to tell us how to operate it! Mom was not pleased; she had a service guy come out last week to discuss the matter, and he agreed we could switch it with a simpler model. She went up to their office/storefront (conveniently located 1/2 mile east of where we live) and selected a new thermostat, and yesterday in the early afternoon, the tech came out & installed it. This one is much easier to operate, and even came with an instruction manual! Now Mom's happy, and we can look forward to being warm & cozy in the house all winter with our new furnace.

    Going in for my ablation tomorrow. It looks like I'm the second procedure so I'll most likely be spending the night at the hospital and, if all goes well, be released by noon tomorrow. I'll let you know how things turn out and any thoughts and/or prayers are greatly appreciated!
