Thursday 4/12/12

Got the new microwave yesterday at Walmart for $65.  1.0 cubic foot and 1,000 watts.  Good enough and brand new.  Whittling this project down.  I need to find a good, used spare tire for it - though the rubber on it's good, you don't want to get stuck out in the middle of nowhere with a flat on a trailer.

Still have to yank out the carpet.  One of those "don't feel like it" things, I'll get to it in the next couple of days depending on how tired I am after work.  You know, one of things where you go to work all day and then come home to - go to work again? lol

The dog got out yet again yesterday.  This time the kid that walks them was leaving and she darted out.  He was much better at catching her than I will ever be, had her back in about 5 minutes.  I wasn't particularly happy with the dog doing that, to be honest about it.

I also installed a new tub faucet set in the main bathroom yesterday.  The thing broke the first time I turned it on, meaning taking the thing back out and going to Home Depot to get another one, only to find out they were out of stock.  This is the kind of thing that can reeeeeeally irritate me when doing home projects.  A project that should have been done in 20 minutes ended up taking over 2 hours.

Sending out the next to last payment on the other trailer today.  One more payment after this and it's over with - and I can't tell ya how glad I'll be to have that thing paid for and out of my hair.  It will probably go up for sale as soon as I get the lien release on it.  I just want to get back what I paid for it, which should be easy enough - it was sold for less than it's worth in the first place to help out Mark and Lynnette in having a place to stay.

That's it.  Off to the races - ummm - work that is.  There was nothing in the truck routing system yesterday, I do hope there is at least something in there this morning or this is going to be an awfully long day at work!



Short trip, got that over with. I no more than got back to the yard and left for home when I got a text from yet the newest version of a di...
