Having coffee and looking forward to working this afternoon.
Caught this little booger last night.
It had been scuttling around my bedroom hiding behind my cedar chest for several nights.. then running back and forth, in and out down the hallway.
Then... snap!

I spent the later part of the after noon installing a new dish washer.

Amazing the cheap metal parts, the lack of a power cord, unclear instructions, and that the darn thing even works for $800....

I admit I said a few choice words, when I had to take it back out to adjust the rear wheels and the front levelers, because the counter is 1/2" lower than it was adjusted for from the factory..

It is so quiet I am not sure it is washing the first load, although I suspect it is, from what little I hear. Sure is a lot quieter than the one it replaced. After 12 years things have gotten better in the sound department. Lets hope it gets the dishes clean!

Regards, Kirk

Finally relaxing!
Decided to go to the Chinese place in the mall for take - out.

Neither I nor Ali felt like cooking.
Ty's in Marion Indiana, the weebles are sleeping.
We've got that movie Selena in the DVD player.
I'm glancing but have seen it before.
Had a nice visit with my hospice darlings.
I love them both already.

I haven't done much for days. Apart from the fact that my back is still hurting, the next two things on my list are spraying and seeding. The problem is that the wind has been blowing a gale for a week. I keep picking up all the downed branches because it looks as if I'll have to mow before I do anything else. I'm getting a little bit frustrated!!!!

I'm pretty sure I've got food poisoning from the Chinese last night.
I'll rest and stay hydrated.
So far no one else feels this way, but they didn't have the General Tso chicken either.

Default Re: What are you doing today?

I am having my kitchen remodeled. Through Lowe's. The cabinets were delivered last Thursday. They had been sitting on my carport for a week.

I had thought that Lowe's would have been notified when they were delivered. That is not the way it works though. I called Lowe's early in the afternoon the next day (last Friday) after they had been delivered.
Lowe's told me that the installer would call me by the end of the day. I never got a call so I called Lowe's on Monday. They hadn't told me the name of who they had contracted with yet so I found it out. They told me that they would call the installer and that he would contact me Tuesday at the latest. I still hadn't been called by the end of the day. So I called him Wednesday. First he told me that he hadn't heard anything about it until I called him. But then he said he had gotten an Email and mumbled some excuses. When he told me that the earliest he could even get started was the end of next week. He just had the attitude like he couldn't give a damn. I wouldn't have minded if he had given me a call. It would have taken 5 minutes out of his precious busy schedule. Instead he lied about not getting the message. So I went off on the guy.
I then told him that I would call Lowe's. He must have called them first because when I called the guy who answered knew exactly who I was and he told me that his supervisor was on another line with the installer and that she would come on the line when she got off of it with him. Which she did and she said that he (the installer) would definitely be calling me by the end of the day.
Which he did. I explained the one reason I was so upset was because he hadn't at least taken the time to call me. The second reason was because I was worried about the stuff being damaged. And that I could not be held responsible if it was.
On the paperwork it says that the things needed to be inspected to be inspected within a week from delivery.
He came out this morning and got it inspected. I had moved a lot of the stuff out of my kitchen already. He got the cabinets stuff in it. stored in it.
Then he decided to discuss politics. He would NOT SHUT UP! No wonder he is behind schedule. He just kept talking. He is fortunate that I am a Republican as he went on and on.
I had given him a Coke and gotten one myself. I finally I got up and went outside to throw it in my recycle bin. he tagged along yakking all the time.Then I gradually worked my way down my driveway with him following, following somehow in front so he could look at me while he ran his mouth. If he talks that much all the time instead of working it's no wonder that is behind schedule. I worked my way out to his truck. I backed slowly away. He kept talking about that famous (and delicious) political document the "A la carte."
Fortunately he got the hint and left.

No, but my digestive system has been playing hell with me.
All day yesterday, all night up and down to the bathroom.
Last time was at 6am this morning.
Now it's just an overwhelming weakness.
Ty went to Kroger last night and got me ginger ale and more Gatorade.
Don't think I'll be eating much today.
Resting.

Actually it was more throwing up.
If you've ever smelled the bile substance from peri- dyalisis, that should give you an idea.

Have fun at camp.

Feeling better today, but still taking it easy with my stomach.
Ty and Ali went to Menards to get something to fix the water pump or pressure system.
Whatever it is, he seems to know what the problem is.
We all took trickling showers this morning.
It's always something!
He wants to grill later.
Fingers crossed that damn phone doesn't ring from dispatch.. even the babies know what that ringtone means.
