Annoying Neighbors Car Chases Cornish Rex Field Work heat Keeping Warm laughter Sandy spam

Heating Problem Fixed 11/02/2012

I went and got a heavy-duty 15 amp extension cord and exchanged it with the one  was using.  The Lasko heater is 15 amp.  This extension cord does not get hot, so I’m feeling much better about using it.  I’m cozy warm in my room and the breaker is not tripping anymore.

My “trash can always at the front door, car alarm going off all hours of the night, cursing screaming little kids, toys all over the street, outdoor living room loving, loud talking in the middle of the night,  annoying neighbors”  have moved out.  I am such a happy woman!   I already feel sorry for their new neighbors.  I’m hoping for a set of nice quiet neighbors with well-behaved kids, to move in next.

One of my clients emailed me that they did not want me to chase anything until further notice due to Sandy up and down the east coast.   Well, another client apparently doesn’t give a lovely, and sent me on two chases yesterday and two today.   I was in a highrise apartment building, in an elevator.   This is the sign posted. …

It thought it was so funny.  You couldn’t fit 21 people standing on top of each other triple stacked in this elevator.  What were they thinking?

Every night when I get home, I get greeted by Silly when  I get in.  I’m pretty sure that she knows the sound of my car.   For the first 5 minutes she is steady talking to me…probably cursing me out for being gone so long.  Then it’s a race upstairs to my bathroom where she patiently waits for me to come and turn the faucet on.  She is such a trip!!

 

Teri at Curlz and Swirlz….Life with Cornish Rex cats, and a Sphynx named Disco NoFurNo put up a Halloween video….she and her cats.  LOL  The Monster Mash….Curly Swirly Type.  Thanks for the giggle, Teri 🙂

I’m so very happy with WordPress.  It caught 53 spam comments and I didn’t even have to do anything.  I am going to check and see if all of them are truly spam….yep, they are spam.  Spell check is pretty awesome too.  Much better than Blogger.  I wish I would have made the switch a long time ago.

Car Chases Crocheting Field Work Gloves Sandy

A Much Calmer Day 10/30/2012

I made it through the night warm, dry and safe. …..slept like a log even with the wind blowing and whistling outside my window.  My lights never even flickered during the storm.

This morning, this is all the damage I could find…

The top of the light by my front door came off but was on the ground right below…

No big deal.  I never use that light anyway, since I rigged up a motion sensor flood light.    Nothing else broken, the siding is still on the house.  The car is fine.  I consider myself pretty lucky! 🙂  I did find trash and trash cans everywhere on my way to work this morning.  It was pretty much like driving through an obstacle course.

Last night at around 10 there was so much noise that I decided to go out in the back yard and see.  I have a 500-watt floodlight out there.  Well, as you can see, it really wasn’t all that bad…much bark, hardly any bite.

I guess I won’t have any daytime work for a while.  I received an email from one of my clients that I chase for.  He wrote:  “Due to the significant weather event on the east coast, please note the following.  Please suspend field chasing in the following states until reassigned: CT, DC, DE, MD, NJ, NY, PA, VA, RI, MA. ”  Surely all my other clients will follow suit.

I was freezing at work earlier.  My hands were so cold, I could hardly type.  Then I remembered the fingerless gloves that I made.

Ha, all nice and warm now.   Well, back to work.  It’s going to be a long day.

Hope everyone is safe out there.
