Yay! My Windows are Done…

Finally, the windows on the back of my house are all done!  Quick recap, took 3 months to order, then install got backed up by over a month by bad/cold weather in the area.  Then when the install days came, a couple major parts were damaged in manufacturing or handling.  So that took 2 weeks to rush remanufacturing, and they came in last thursday, and installation came today on my rotating day off.  I’m happy with the product, we’ve already noticed a difference, and the installers was really good as well.  Yay, except for the check which went slightly into 5 figures.  Ah home ownership.  Now we just have to get them inspected by the town, which only has a part time building inspector who works 5-7pm weekdays.  So, effectively done.  Pictures to follow…

The Flu Really Does Suck…

Well, I handed in my man card and went to the doctor.  Seeing as how my wife was bugging me, she made the appointment on my day off, and my cough got worse over the last weekend.  So, yeah.  Drugs are fun.  Cough medicine, steroid inhaler, chug as much water as I can(which is fun as I’m driving around all day with not always convenient access to a bathroom), and a pseudophedrine containing decongestant which is a lot of fun to take on top of my fairly large morning coffee.  Seriously, a couple coworkers asked me if something was up/i was ok.  I was seriously buzzed off the combination, so the next day I went to a half-caff coffee.  Much better, didn’t look like I had used the pseudophedrine to make a batch of shake and bake.  I spent this weekend seeing if I could wean myself off the drugs, which has gone fairly well, I just need to not push it at work the next couple of days.  And my daughter is sick again.  Well, just a minor fever so hopefully she’s better in the morning.

The Flu Kinda Sucks…

My younger daughter was home all week last week with the flu, and topped off the week with an ear infection for good measure.  I had to take one day off to care for her as well as my scheduled day off on Friday.  You can probably guess where this is going.  I caught some variety of what she had, but at least I have today off also to recuperate.  Ibuprofen is your friend.  I’m just such a big guy that I have to take large doses to have a good effect.  Oh well, back to work tomorrow.
