Wow does everything take 7 times longer to do than ever. A full day of work and all I have to show for it is 4 empty boxes, some half-filled drawers and the bedroom lamp and my phone set up. The phone machine held the messages I didn't get in August, so those were weird to hear. And if things are strangely packed, well, that's how it got done. The various parts of things will show up, or not.
Here's something cheesy- I noticed the bags of cranberries didn't seem to make as much, so looked at the fine print. Aha! Bags of cranberries are no longer a pound; they're 12 ounces. Thanks for that rotten surprise, Ocean Spray.
Seems I've developed quite a blue streak as I work, good thing there are no kids around.
As night falls around Chez Austan, things are still a huge mess but a little bit better than they were this morning. I reported what needs fixing around here, so they'll be here early tomorrow, as is their wont. With a good night of sleep I'll be back at it before they show up. And maybe I'll have the time and space to catch up on all the news, too. Enough for tonight.
An Alarming Situation.
