I thought I might have to install a revolving door on Monday. Worker bees, technicians, and insurance folks were traipsing through for the better part of the day.
Mercifully the wind turbines were removed by the water extraction company. At long last I can almost hear myself think. The very nice insurance guy took lots of photos and gave me hope that my dreams of flooring that doesn’t involve exposed cement may be in my future. And my favorite visitor of the day was the G.E. washer repairman. There isn’t enough wrong to warrant a completely new washing machine, but enough parts were ordered that I ought to feel as though it is new.
Today the Fed Ex truck arrived twice to deposit large boxes on our doorstep. It was like Christmas. For Ma Ingalls. The repairman is expected back on Saturday, which the very thought of gives me the will to live. Dreams of clean clothes dance in my head. You can only wear your clothes inside out so many times before people begin to wonder…
I learned tonight from a text message from a girlfriend that my son notified his friends at the park yesterday that we were going to have to move to a two story house in light of our recent flooding issues.
She had to set her own son straight on another issue. It seems that my son also informed this same group of friends that while stalking wildlife through the woods at this same park only a few minutes earlier, he came upon a Komodo Dragon dining on a King Cobra. The proof was a bite mark left on Jensen’s pointer finger.
My friend had to google Komodo Dragons in an effort to ensure her son that they are not native to Florida. We might also need to do damage control to convince his friends that we hardly ever see King Cobras at this particular park either.
Perhaps, just perhaps, I should remove Jurassic Park I, II, and III from the child’s viewing lineup.
In other news, I am all caught up with Downton Abbey. Yes. I’ve watched all 3 seasons in the span of 6 days.
I now lack the ability to blink. Totally worth it.
Favorite character? Old Lady Grantham. By a mile.
