House update: ma'am, we're here to deliver the world

Many trucks arrived today, delivering many heavy objects and taking away large amounts of money. Our refrigerator, freezer, washer, dryer, and bed came in. Late in the afternoon a guy from a local artificial-turf company came to give us a quote on doing part or all of the yard. We were unimpressed: scratch that off the list. It was a pretty good day, albeit a very expensive one.

In the give-me-a-break category... The reason why all of this stuff was scheduled for Tuesday was that willowisp was going to be there anyway. ADT was going to come out in the afternoon to set up the alarm. Well, they didn't show up. willowisp called to find out what was going on and found out that the local ADT contractor is none other than Prewire. They had no record whatsoever of our appointment. We are now rescheduled for Thursday.
