Owing to a string of petty-theft break-ins around the ranch, ADT will be coming out next Friday to install a wireless system (due to having no attic space – gotta love those flat 50’s roofs).
Cost was a little over 600, but our insurance company effectively paid for it by discounting us that much off our homeowner’s policy.
In other less-exciting news, I’ve (this is Amy writing, btw) been attempting to get the house back up to housecleaning scratch after a year of letting everything go to pot. At one time, I honestly thought that the only solution to the mess would be a tactical nuke from orbit.
When your foyer consists of 50% junk mail, 30% cat dander, and 20% unpacked suitcases, you know life is in a dire state.
As of today the living room, kitchen, and blue bathroom are back to “normal”. The dining room is still cluttered with objects to be organized elsewhere, but the trash is gone.
I won’t discuss the offices. They’re still tac-nuke candidates.
And I’ve fallen in love with this site. Enjoy it!
