how it's going

Today we had a wood floor installed in our bedroom. I have been looking forward to this not just because I love wood, but because I have terrible indoor allergies. The allergist said wood floors will make a difference. I suppose our bedroom carpet contained dust mites from the previous owners plus their wiener dog and their cat, plus us and our fluffy dog who sheds endlessly. The vacuum cleaner can't get it all out.

Well, they installed the wrong floor. We were puzzled for some time before checking the name on the box. It turns out there are two kinds of Manchurian Maple, the modern-looking one we wanted, and the country-looking one we got.

They are going to come back and re-do it. No problem, no argument, their mistake. So we will continue sleeping in the living room for a while longer. Not a big deal.

The biggest waste of money was the movie I rented last night, The Benchwarmers! I should have been properly forewarned when it boasted on the back cover that it's by the same guy who directed a bunch of doofus Adam Sandler movies. It was so bad we could not finish watching it. It just got dumber and dumber the more it went on. (This is just about as opinionated as I'll get on my blog. Sorry if I've offended some Adam Sandler fans. It's just not my cup of tea).

When are they coming back to re-do the floor?

I never did get your email BOO HOO!


Hope the floor dilema gets solved soon!

Well, at least you didn't get an argument.

Adam who?

Hey Marci, They are planning to come back on Sept. 8. They have to re-order the right floor. So when you come here you will see the country floor. It looks good for what it is... it's just not our style.

barbara, that is so weird that the emails are not working. I responded to the email you sent me. I'll try to send it to you from my gmail account.

Fred, That's why I feel like it is not a big deal, because we had anticipated them giving us a hard time. They have been great to work with.

can we safely assume that the gentlman in the "breathe" cartoon is a faithful rendition?

I, too, suffered through the Benchwarmers. "Waste of money" is a kind way to put it.
