Here are this past week’s highlights:
- I installed my new programmable, digital thermostat all by myself last Sunday, and miracle of miracles, it actually works!!! Of course, the day after I installed it, the weather got warmer, so the heat’s been off. lol…What I learned from this experience:
- I have a heat pump. Who knew? Of course, the first thermostat I bought (for around $35) wasn’t heat pump compatable, so I had to take it back and exchange it. The units that were heat pump compatable and programmable started at $80 and went up from there. Figures.
- Murphy’s law extends to digital thermostats. There will always be that one wire that isn’t mentioned in the installation manual. Thank God for the internet, or almost a week later, I’d still be standing in the hallway, scratching my head and yelling, “But where does the “T” wire go???!!!???”
So that’s basically my week. This weekend I am hoping, hoping, hoping to get a good chunk of these kitchen cabinets painted. I am so tired of living in chaos!!! I know I do this to myself by starting these projects, but geez…I want to be done! Anyway, I woke up at 7:30 this morning (read as: My oh, so wonderful cats woke me up at 7:30 by pouncing on my chest) and got to work. As of right now, all of the cabinets in my kitchen have been sanded with the liquid sander/deglosser and have a coat of primer on them. Cabinets. Not cabinet doors. Those have not yet been touched. lol…
Other than the cabinets, I have no plans for the weekend other than the usual trip to the grocery store on Sunday. I lead such an exciting life! Monday evening I have a parent’s meeting at my daughter’s school to get information on her upcoming 4-day trip to Myrtle Beach with the chorus. They leave next Thursday morning, and she has to be at school by 4:15 am! That should be a fun day – up at 3 am and then work all day long! She’ll be home sometime next Sunday night, so Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I’ll be home alone and need to party like a rock star. Woohoo!
Time to go see if the primer is dry, I guess….
