After making and selling her first hall tree last weekend, she now has orders for 3 more. She got the 2nd order last Saturday (but the guy doesn't want it until his wife's birthday at the end of the month), then she got an order yesterday and another one this morning.
The metal for our gate was taken to the powder coat place, but they told the welder it will be about 2 weeks before they get to them. We aren't in any hurry and the powder coating cost ended up being half what dh thought it would be. Good, because the welding part is more hours than dh thought, haha. Whatever, I always add 1/3 to what ever dh estimates, LOL. I really like this welder guy. He's right on the ball with it all and very good about communicating with dh where he's at in the process.
Last night I made french dip sandwiches for dinner. We haven't had those in probably 3 years, haha. Dh had two. I just buy roast beef sliced from the deli and usually over estimate how much to get, so he will also be able to have some roast beef on his ham and turkey lunch sandwich today.
The monitor cables I ordered on Wednesday are actually showing out for delivery today. That's the fastest anything has gotten here for a long time. I'll believe it when I see it, haha. Just keeping my fingers crossed I managed to order the right thing. And you'd think with all the cables I have around here now (including old style ones we already had) that one of them would work to hook dh up a 2nd monitor, but nope. Need something different again for that. (have I mentioned how dumb that is?!)
My mom called about dinner time last night (I had already talked to her just after lunch). She seemed a bit more forgetful. She thought she was having trouble with her phone, but I said well, I called you earlier and you answered and you just called me so it must be working ok. Then she had a knock on her door and her dinner was being delivered. She told me she just put it in her fridge until we were done talking. Apparently it was something cold? (usually their big "dinner" meal is at lunch time). We chatted a few more minutes and then she said well, I'd better go - my dinner will probably be here soon. I had to remind her it just got delivered and she put it in her fridge! Yikes.
Her investment account manager was supposed to have a Pin# mailed to her (I think it gets sent from their corporate office) and she said it usually takes a couple of weeks. I keep asking my mom if she's gotten any mail yet from them, but apparently not yet. The good part, I guess, is if she did get it and buried it, it's not going anywhere. She doesn't throw out her mail, even if she has asked me about something and I tell her it's junk mail. So next time I'm at her apartment (they have no visitor policy in place again due to covid positive in workers) I'll go through all her papers/mail again and most likely find it.
People are funny. This decor page I've been following on Facebook....if someone asks for suggestions or opinion I at least try to read through the replies. This lady posted a pic of her washer and dryer in a hallway closet that her hubby never put the bifold door back up for and she's tired of looking at it open. Any suggestions? Barn door barn door barn door. She quickly replied she doesn't have the wall space for a barn door. Barn door barn door barn door. Then I commented If she couldn't get a bi-fold door put back up, I highly doubt she's going to get him to put up a barn door. She replied "exactly!" More comments: barn door barn door barn door. LOL.
TGIF to the week that felt like a 5 day work week.
