I'll start with the window update. So fourteen windows are entirely done, and a couple more are prepped and ready to go this morning. Those are sitting in the garage, and that leaves 12 windows to go and two days left to install them. If you do the math, I don't think they will make it. Two of the windows they did yesterday were small ones in two upstairs bathrooms.
At some point, we needed to do a count and NO -- we seem to be one window short. I knew this was going to happen. Well, no - I thought the problem had been resolved. When the contract was put together, I remember that there was a discussion about a missing window. I counted the number of windows a hundred times and verified it to the contract many times.
I knew a window was missing, and I communicated it to the sales rep. I thought we had resolved the issue. Yesterday, I checked the paper copy that I had although it wasn't the most up-to-date, and the error is there. I need to pull up the digital contract to see if that mistake got fixed, and I swear it did.
We may have to way another five months for that last window!
But it makes me laugh, and I thought about this bench that we spotted this summer. It was part of a geocache, and you had to identify the number of fish on the bench. Ronda and I couldn't figure out the correct number -- OK -- we did but by process of elimination.
|How many fish are on this bench?|
However, when Madeline and her friend and Little Bear counted, they got it right the first time. I still don't know how we could have messed this one up!
The same way the windows got messed up, I suppose. The installers and I will compare notes this morning to see the problem. I guess I need more fingers and toes to go higher than 20!
So I kept the paperwork but didn't make notes!!! GRRR!!! Let's see what the digital contract says.
But the girls love the new windows. They can see for miles out the front window. They have been warned to keep their paws and noses OFF the window, and we'll see how long that lasts.
|MOM -- we can see for miles!|

|Damage to the joint tape|

Oh shoot -- I forgot to show you my learning curve project. Tomorrow!
I also made myself a HUGE list of things that need to be done. I remembered most of them, but with all the stuff going on, I just couldn't accomplish them as fast as they accumulated. So I hope to focus on that list today and get a lot of it done.
It really should be about sending out confirmations to all the classes today. I'm going to try my best, and I'd better do it today because tomorrow, this office will be turned upside down. I'm even tempted to tell them that whatever windows they can't install can be done at a later date, and that would leave the office free for the moment until I can clean it up! And they can install it when the missing window comes. I'll think about that. Yes -- it would be nice to get it done now - I'll see what they say.
And we need to get some of this dust gone. I can't believe how much dust was created, and it's going to take a LONG time to get rid of it. Room by room is all I can do.
Don't forget the Virtual Retreat coming up this weekend.

And don't forget that we'll have a Virtual Retreat on Boxing Day (December 26) as well.
It's time to get the day started -- the guys will be here early, depending on traffic. Even though yesterday was a cloudy day with rain in the forecast, it was warm for this time of year and had little rain. We have been so lucky -- I can't believe it.
Have a super day!!!
