Ugh! A crappy day. Didn't sleep last night because it was so hot. When we turned on the fan it was too noisy. Sigh. Got up three or four times in the middle of the night. Didn't really get to sleep till 3 AM...for a couple hours. Anyways enough whining about that.
The man came to measure our fireplace for the gas insert. He came with a quote and no one had even seen it yet! We were aghast. He went back for another comparison quote and it was even higher! We were expecting around $3500. It was twice that!!! I was ticked. DH is going to phone another place that does fireplace inserts.
I phoned an elderly lady I was going to take to get repairs done on her electric toothbrushes. The fireplace guy was out of here by 10:30 AM, so I thought we could get this done in the morning. She tore a strip off me because she wasn't ready to go yet. She insisted we go at 1:30 PM, our originally agreed upon plan. Okaaaay...I was just asking...
In the end DH and I walked to the library to return material and pick up material. Had lunch. Went to pick up said elderly lady at the originally designated time. I had DH drive because she responds much better to men. Plus I wanted to continue on with our errands afterwards, which we did. It's amazing to me how she's so docile around men and so mean spirited around women. I'm not the only woman to have issues with her. She must have been feeling guilty because she gave me a tea towel I didn't need when we arrived. I asked 'What am I supposed to do with this?', and for a wonder she didn't bite my head off. But DH was listening. Sometimes I swear I'm going to be happy to leave this place!
After running errands we came back and I read my library book on buying and selling homes for Dummies. Making a few notes and discussing things with DH. We pretty much agree on why we want to move. Though I have a much longer list of negatives about this house than he does.
Made supper on the stove tonight. It cooled down and clouded over today.
Taking photos of stuff and listing it online for sale. I had a lady swing by today and buy something. She wants to come back for something else tomorrow. I have two other people coming tomorrow for items.
So funny...on Sunday a lady I know asked me how I was making out selling things online. She's part of a private group I sell to online, but she's never bought anything. I told her just fine. She pursued it with "You're selling some nice things". I said thank-you and changed the subject. I'm lightening the load for the moving truck. That's what I'm doing. I'm also getting rid of clutter. I did not let her know how much we've made so far, as it's none of her business. But, knowing this lady, that was exactly what she was fishing to find out.
Hoping I get some sleep tonight and tomorrow is more relaxing. I think we have someone coming to give a quote on painting the house sometime tomorrow as well.
