Just in case you thought I hadn't posted because I was immersed in holiday hijinks...this is what I'm doing. (I've never used this particular corny iphoto device before, but somehow it seemed in tune with the exaggerated boxed-in effect that is my life at the moment.) And there is oh so much more to be done. Movers were excellent, and it went well.The stove is here, and I'm reconnected all around.
So far, the only two unexpected negatives are the kitchen sinks that don't drain properly (Hey, inspector guy-isn't that what you were supposed to notice?) and a cracked floorboard in the back corner of the living room- can't see it really, or trip when there's stuff in the room- but still.....As far as I can figure, it didn't actually crack until a painter knelt on it, but the floor guy probably should have noticed it was giving, and fixed it. I'm quitting work on the unpacking for the rest of the day, in celebration of the holiday, and of arriving mostly intact. Then til Monday, and beyond-unpacking is pretty much all I see before me. Happy Thanksgiving, all.
