At Home Today

November 25th, 2014 at 02:22 pm

I don't know what I did, but I hurt my knee yesterday. This would be the other knee, not the one that gave me so much trouble before. I can barely move around this morning, so I am going to work from home.

This is actually good in a way, because I will be home (I hope) when the Bose is delivered. They left an attempt-to-deliver message yesterday and they will try again today. I say "I hope" because I have to go to the airport to pick up my sister today. I hope they will not deliver while I am gone. Her plane arrives at 4 something, so it's not the best timing.

I did go to the dentist yesterday and now have a new temporary crown. It sure feels a lot better. There was no charge.

It's cold again in my condo. Clearly, whenever it is cold outside, it will be cold inside. (We had a notice from the homeowners' association that the furnace has been worked on but will work on a sensor system, meaning it will cycle on and off. It doesn't seem to cycle on very often.) I have my radiators full on; that's all I can do. I am wearing layers today; I will adjust.

Today I need to pack and make my cranberry salad. I'm contemplating taking a bag of laundry to my brother's house. I'm also contemplating getting a hotel room tonight. Since I have no couch, I will have to give my bed to my sister (she has a bad back), and sleep with her (yeah, right, I can't sleep even when I sleep alone! And she really snores) or sleep on the floor. If I spring for a hotel room, we could leave tonight, get a jump on the trip, and miss most of the bad traffic, as well as be a lot more comfortable, in separate beds. It's a thought.

I got my $100 check from Citi yesterday and put it in checking. It will help me to cashflow this month's Discover bill.

Seems like nothing is really going right now, but I AM looking forward to the holiday and the family gathering! Thanksgiving is really my favorite holiday!

    Your heat isn't a boiler system, with radiators that might need to be bled of air? I'll commiserate with you - I can't get warm this year's going to be a loooong winter!

    Good luck with all that's going on! Happy Thanksgiving!!

    It is a boiler system. The radiators were bled last year. I thought they would be noisy if they needed to be bled? It's worth looking into, though!

    Thanks to both of you for the Thanksgiving wishes -- and right back at you!

    I don't recall them being noisy, but I do remember that my dad had to bleed them at least once a year. Whenever I'd get cold at night, I'd tell my dad, and he'd bleed the radiator in my room, and then I'd be toasty. Hope the solution IS that easy!
