|Who us? Chew on a cord?|
Perhaps another contributing factor was the work I've been doing in the basement. I've been moving furniture and have begun painting in preparation for new flooring going in next week. I'm going to have a whole new basement!! Laundry room is going to change from pink to white.
The landing at the bottom of the steps has been spackled and sanded and has a first coat. Because it was pale green before it will need a second coat.
Hallway has a first coat of paint except for one narrow strip I missed!!
The kittens helped me move the futon! Hah! You can see their plaster dust footprints all over it!
All furniture except the futon has been stuffed into the furnace room and the laundry room. The workmen said they could move and work around the futon:) The fun part was taking apart the TV, Blu Ray player, speakers etc etc, labelling all the cords so I can hopefully put it all back together accurately. Strangely I found TWO cords that were doing nothing - not plugged in at either end??
Yesterday the new flooring and other materials arrived. OOOOOHHH and the lady from Home Depot called me and said I was getting a refund of $130 due to wrong underlay on my original order. It ain't much but it helps :)
Baseboards above; underlay, concrete (to fill those little round holes around the perimeters due to carpet nails)...
I'm so excited!!
