They are re-doing parts of the roof, including the alleyway that our apartment surrounds. It has been letting in some absolutely amazing sunshine (and actually reminds me kind of of those Mexican houses with courtyards you see in movies). We don't have to have the lights on all the time! It makes the house look cheerful! I just wish it would last longer, or even permanently. Unfortunately, I know it's going to go away either later today, or Monday.
This is a horrible move on their part for several reasons. the main one being they will probably actually loose a lot of money doing this (and actually hope they do). Sunday's have never been a productive day for us to call people, no one wants to talk to us on Sunday. I guess they are just ignoring that fact, and going to pretend that nothing bad will happen because of it.
after so long and patiently waiting, my computer has finally come. UPS had lost the other one, so we got to order a brand new one. and it works wonderfully, without the battery falling out, and the battery actually charges!
We went to the DI today to look for (among other things) a salt shaker that holds more salt (ours holds hardly anything, so we have to fill it frequently). these were so cute/funny and we really wanted to get them.... then looked inside and realized they hold even less salt than the one we have now holds. which was quite disappointing.
I might have mentioned this before, but we have an alleyway full of pigeons. We generally try to shoot them away (using air soft guns). Because it got cold last night, the windows happened to be closed, and this lucky bird got a picture taken, instead of being shot at.
Yesterday, the UPS man was supposed to deliver my new computer. instead, all we got was a note saying he couldn't leave it because we hadn't given them permission to do so (though I don't know why it has never been a problem before). So, in case he comes today, we are leaving him notes with express permission to leave the package.
