OK, so maybe that was a little harsh.
But you have to consider, the Dish Network guy was here yesterday to install my satellite TV. I could have been enjoying SoapNet and TNT and other TV wonders right now.
But the equipment Radio Shack gave to Eric to give to the Dish Network guy was in the trunk of our car 2 hours' drive away.
I have no TV until the beginning of next week.
When I could have had it now.
And my cast iron green demon door knocker is something he just can't remember packing...
...or having at the other house.
But he knows he took it off the fence.
If it's stolen with my Buddha and Calla Lilies, I will be very sad.
I hope the things he needs to pick up are still at the old house and not stolen or tossed.
Today should be the last pick up, then we finish unpacking here and we're done.
I don't have pictures up downstairs yet, but it's pretty well set up.
Today, I do the upstairs, which means I won't have to live out of clothes piles any more. Dressers and closets all the way!
After that, I'm going to take a ton of pictures to show you guys. :) It's really shaping up nicely, but lord, this was a ton of work.
I look forward to "routine" and time to do the things I love to do again.
My friend from Kentucky visited on Wednesday. It was so great to see her AND she brought me 4 multi-colored calla lily bulbs! I have never seen calla lilies of color! I can't wait for them to come up!!!
Rather than bitch some more about all the work I have to do, I'm going to live you with some funnies for the weekend:
Marriage (Part I)
Typical macho man married typical good-looking lady and after the wedding, he laid down the following rules:
"! I'll be home when I want, if I want and at what time I want-and I don't expect any hassle from you. I expect a great dinner to be on the table unless I tell you that I won't be home for dinner. I'll go hunting, fishing, boozing and card-playing when I want with my old buddies and don't you give me a hard time about it. Those are my rules.
His new bride said, "No,
that's fine with me. Just understand that there will be sex here at seven
o'clock every night... whether you're here or not."
Marriage (Part II)
Husband and wife had a bitter quarrel on the day of their 40th wedding anniversary!
The husband yells, "When you die, I'm getting you a headstone that reads, 'Here Lies My Wife - Cold As Ever.'
"Yeah?" she replies.
"When you die, I'm getting you a headstone that reads, "Here Lies My
Husband Stiff At Last.'"
Marriage (Part III)
Husband (a doctor) and his wife are having a fight at the breakfast table. Husband gets up in a rage and says, "And you are no good in bed either," and storms out of the house.
After sometime he realizes he was nasty and decides to make amends and rings her up. She comes to the phone after many rings, and the irritated husband says, "what took you so long to answer the phone?"
She says, "I was in bed."
"In bed this early, doing what?"
"Getting a second
Marriage (Part IV)
A man has six children and is very proud of his achievement. He is so proud of himself, that he starts calling his wife," Mother of Six" in spite of her objections.
One night, they go to a party. The man decides that it's time to go home and wants to find out if his wife is ready to leave as well. He shouts at the top of his voice, "Shall we go home 'Mother of six?"
His wife, irritated by her husband's lack of discretion shouts right back, "Anytime you're ready, Father of Four."
we need now is for our UN Ambassador to stand up and repeat this message:
And with that, the time has come for all good ladies to come to the aid of their upstairs packing.
Have a STELLAR weekend, everyone and know that someone here in Grizzly Flats, CA loves yous (that'd be me!).
