This and that

May 8th, 2007 at 09:20 pm

I had a no-spend day going, but then I noticed that Netflix charged my Discover card, so technically, it's a spender. I did get Little Miss Sunshine in the mail, so that makes up for it!

I came home early from work because a carpet guy was coming to check the pad. We decided to replace a 4 x 6 area of padding. I hope the carpet cleans up nice after that. I'm a little worried because he showed me that the back of the carpet was stained, and that might come through when it is shampooed. Ugghh, I'm so sick of this stuff.

My realtor called today to say, "Ready?" I had to say no. I won't get the ceiling painted till Monday (unless it rains this week -- my handyman is apparently working outside somewhere). I didn't get any promises about when the pad will be replaced. But I went out on a limb and said, "Two weeks." She's going to put an ad in the realty magazine that will be published in two weeks. So I've got a firm deadline now.

Yesterday I touched up the paint in my living room, stairwell and hall. Today I touched up an area in my bathroom I missed -- didn't see it until I bathed this morning and had a different vantage point!

I got a new computer at work today. What a pleasure it is to use! Makes me wish I had got a desktop for home. I don't think I'm really a laptop person.

Yesterday's retreat netted me breakfast, lunch, and snacks to take home. There was a lot of stuff left at the end of the day, so I asked my boss if it was okay to take an orange juice and yogurt. She said okay!

I was invited to an open house on Saturday for an ex-colleague who is graduating from law school. I haven't figured out yet what to get him. Maybe an Olive Garden gift card? I'm sure he and his wife are in the mood to go out!

    A gift card sounds like a great idea.
    Sounds like you are really moving along on the house!

    Those cards are always appreciated.
