1. Our wonderful garage door broke. In the previous house this was a weekly occurrence and we just rolled with it. Here, the new door was wonderfully competent and always went up and down without a hitch. Then Dave's golf bag on wheels rolled into the electric eye and smashed it and now we have to call in the repair guy. Sigh.
2. Then I was doing laundry and decided to wash the batting that had been on my design wall for lo these many years. Full of threads and dust, no doubt, since we always live in a construction zone, I thought twice about just putting in the washer, and instead went to the big deep kitchen sink to hand wash the thing. All went well until I was putting the Dawn back under the sink and saw a layer of black crud on the floor of the cabinet! Immediately I called Dave and said "MOLD" which thankfully it was not. Now we think it was dried up ground up potato peelings, from the garbage disposal. So he cleaned that up, since he does better on his knees than I do, felt around for anything wet, finding nothing and I finished washing up the batting. When I drained the soapy water, and looked under the cabinet, there it all was, still foamy! Arrggh. Upon further inspection we found a 'spigot' attached to the disposal which just lets overflow, um, overflow. This can't be right, so I am calling the builder today to look at this mess. The under cabinet shows signs of water being there, so when this began happening is in question.
BTW, I squeezed out the batting and placed it in my washer (a big empty tub with no agitator) and put it on the rinse and spin cycle, then in the dryer. It came out beautifully.
3. Last night we had a really great thunder and lightening storm for hours. This morning we had no internet and the clock on the stove has malfunctioned and just says Cool, with a tiny lock symbol. Little annoyances.
I'll get the repair people out here today and it will all be resolved.
O, one more thing. The people that bid on our house can't get financing and their house hasn't sold so NEVERMIND.
