in which our plucky heroine applauds the progress made, as the second bedroom gets laminate flooring installed.
My Blue Cedar House pals were here for their once a month visit, and once again great leaps forward happened on the house improvement front:
I am loath to put all "the stuff back" in the room tomorrow. My house is feeling a bit like one of those puzzle squares where you move the little tiles from one part to another, trying to get the pattern to sort out correctly. I keep moving boxes and bins and piles of stuff from room to room. And though I do keep letting go of stuff and sending it onward to recycleing or to Goodwill or to free giveaway, it just feels neverending. I know it isn't but I first cleared the small bedroom last month, then had to move stuff back in there and back into the living room. OTOH, even with moving stuff back into the small bedroom there is still enough room for my guests to get to both the end and the side of the bed, which wasn't the case last year. Plucky heroine must keep on trucking on...
Plus this weekend my refrigerator died. Like stopped working in a probably irreparable way. So I get to deal with that. Too. I know, first world problem, and fortunately I have several camping coolers and can keep food on ice until I sort out what to do, and where to find a suitable replacement. Because the rooms are tiny, I use a compact fridge; current one is a 4.4 cu/ft size, which is about a quarter of the size of a "normal" fridge here in the USA. This makes it a bit of a challenge to find a good one, because in that size they are mostly intended for use by college students, and the doors have "can holders" instead of shelves to hold foodstuffs. I don't drink beverages that come in cans, I am not the target demographic... I guess I should be grateful that the wee thing lasted ten years before failing. Ah well, it will all sort out in the end somehow, but it just seems wrong to have something like a fridge behave more like consumable goods rather than durable goods...
