Tour of the House

Sorry these pictures have taken so long to post. I wanted to wait until a few more things were done before I posted pictures of our house. I didn't post pictures of the bathrooms or the basement but this gives you a general idea of the house. We love company, so visitors are always welcome.

Living Room

Office - Where I spend most of my time

Giggling Customer Service Rep

I had to call Comcast (again) about some issues with accessing my on-line account. I was having a pretty bizarre problem (an issue with running around in circles) and when I explained it to the rep...he giggled.

Now I've had some pretty bad customer service from Comcast (if you have ever used Comcast you can probably relate). I try to be patient but I'll admit I do call them with a bit of a chip on my shoulder. Usually the last people I work with are great...as they are the ones who actually help me.

Well this guy's giggle certainly improved my mood. At first I was a trifle annoyed that he had the audacity to giggle. But it ended up relaxing me a bit and he proved to be quite helpful.

I may try giggling at the next person who comes off annoyed at me.

Sleeping in the car

I didn't have to sleep in my car tonight, but I came very close.

There are two sets of keys to my car. One is mine and the other Mark's. Because they are a bit bulky Mark leaves his set of my keys along with a few others at home when he goes to work. The problem is this set of car keys, does not have a house key.

I went to Wal-Mart after Mark left for work tonight (I find shopping at night much better w/0 all the people). When I got out of Wal-Mart I realized I had Mark's set of car keys...not mine. The other problem was I had left both of my cell phones in the house (a true rarity for me).

Now our house is thankfully more secure than our apartment was meaning I can't just use a credit card to card my way through the lock. I wasn't confident I'd remembered to lock the door when I left and for once I was hoping I had forgotten.

Thankfully when I arrived home, the door was unlocked. Not that this is very safe or smart...but tonight it proved a good thing.

Had it not been unlocked I either would have had to sleep in my car until Mark arrived at home (he works 3rd shift you don't know this) or gone to Caterpillar and found some security guard to help me find him. I haven't really been around the facility in Joliet like I had been in Thomasville, so that could have been interesting.

I'm off to go sleep in my bed (thankfully:))
