So, the carpet installers are here. Our furnace floor vents are not covered, as the HVAC guy is waiting until all the flooring is in, to put them in. One of them dropped his water bottle down one of the vents! So, now DH is trying to figure out how to get that out. Not to mention they just set their water bottles down on top of our finished wood. Sure, let's just get water rings on our wood. Are people really that dumb? or is it that they don't have anything nice, so they have no idea how to treat stuff?
And millipedes...........just EEEEWWWWW!!!We've found a few in the shop. Now they are invading the house. DH can't even figure out how they are getting in. Yesterday evening he spayed our pesticide stuff we have always used for those kitchen ants, around the outside of the house. Found more in the house today. I looked up the stuff we use to see all what creepy crawlies it works on and millipedes are one of them. Hopefully, it was just the spraying that cause them to run and we are just seeing them in the house because of that and no more will get inside. We've never had those anywhere we've lived before. The neighbor down the street said they were getting them too. Hopefully it's just a quick seasonal thing and they aren't around long.
I called the telephone company at least 2 weeks ago to get us on the schedule to get the internet and phone hooked up to the house. She said 1-2 weeks, but shouldn't be more than 2 weeks. A guy finally shows up today, but he's just here to see what the technicians need to do...then he says 2-3 more weeks! We are like that's not what they told us when I called over 2 weeks ago. Then he said since everything is basically done (by the electricians) it's just about an hours worth of work to hook up and they have another job to do soon, near us, so maybe they can do both on same day. He'll have to check. Plus, we don't really understand how the electricians did the wiring, so couldn't really 100% answer his questions. They have a cat wire coming into our central entryway closet, where he said to put the modem and then it was my understanding that he somehow ran wiring from both my office and dh's den that will go to the modem, so we can be hardwired into the modem, and not wi-fi, with our computers. But, there is only one wire sticking out where the modem is supposed to go. Wouldn't you think there needs to be 2...one from each office? He said when the technician comes he can figure it out and where the wiring and phone/internet jacks go to. Basically, they have the wiring from the house all done, it's sitting rolled up on the wall outside the end of the garage, waiting to be ran thru the conduit that is there, over to the shop, and hooked up to their phone box that is on that shop outside wall.
The the head carpet installer shows up with the rolls of carpet. They rolled the biggest roll out on the front driveway concrete, so they can cut it........and just walk all over it in their shoes! OMG. I just don't get people.
