Got my phone hooked up - So will be moving on over this weekend!
It's probably taken me 2 wks (off and on) to get one done. went straight for my bdrm on the first one. wires were hanging out there which helped. The black outer wire was weird (I'm sure the new stuff) and was hard to splice thru. there's probably a nifty tool to do it easily. Some days I just didn't feel like messing with it. Then too, my car's been dead 3x in the past 12 days. jumped once and the 2nd time the guy came here and fixed the battery cable... I spent most of one day here in the heat waiting for him (by the phone incase he called). Being in the heat that long really did me in - for about 2 days after that.
I have a jack that is a flat rectangle with plug in places on either side. one says dsl and one phone. never used one like that (from my BIL). I'll put that on tomorrow. Not sure I'll have any energy to do much tomorrow 'cause I'm taking my car in about 10 a.m. for a few things (ck up/hoses, oil change). I don't want any bulging hoses to pop on me in this heat!
I've been doing things here (old place) in the mornings and late at night and packing a cooler bag to go to new place in the afternoons (heat of day) with pup. I've spent lots of time there counting shelves (so I don't rebuy what I have here somewhere) and measuring for them. Did get 2 more put up last wk and then decided I wanted another shelf under the rod in 2 closets. I'll have to buy those on my next trip to L's and put up next wk.
took over 1.5 of the 2 tall plastic drawer stacks I use here. The .5 I'll use in my bdrm closet in place of bathroom drawers (that's what i used 'em for here). the other stack will go into the laundry/mud room for tools and parts (same use here). When I get cabs put up in there I'll get rid of it. I only took half of the one over cause it's too much for me at a time. Had to split it up. Spent my afternoon's over there cleaning those out plus 2 little 3 drawer stacks I have (that I'm putting on a pantry shelf for things I don't have drawers for yet in the kitchen). Scrub-a-dub-dub every afternoon for maybe 3 days now.
Most things aren't over there yet but enough is that I can spend the night (taking my trusty cooler with me for ice). Then I'll trot back over here in the a.m. to clean, pack and carry stuff over there. Spend the afternoons there re-cleaning and putting things away (not a lot of places to put things yet - no dressers or storage cabs there). Then I'll return here about 7 pm to fix me dinner and maybe clean a bit more. or not - lol!
The bad part will be that I can't see puppy from over there (this place is in the way). But, she will be in her pen with it's very high fencing around it - some w/barbwire on top of it. She'll be safe.
down the road I'll work on wiring a phone line into the tv room. It was prev wired for one in the kit but that's just steps away from the TV room so I probably won't do that. i'll just put a flat cover plate over it. If I ever need another one, I'll do it then.
oh, I've also spent a good bit of time during the past few afternoons cleaning up the filter thingy to the stove hood/vent. ick. but it's shiny clean now! I was peeking up under that hood to see how icky it was there. Didn't look too bad but will wait til someone pulls out the old stove to clean under the vent. Then I happened to look (for about the zillionth time) AT the hood. Getting a bisque colored one to replace it was on my list to do down the road. Guess what? It IS bisque! duh! doesn't take me long to catch on to these things... I double checked using a very white light switch cover and a bisque one. the hood matches the bisque one and doesn't match the very white one. Well, what a savings in money, time and hassle that is!
I think I need to recount my shelves again...
oh, I'll be attempting to move my computer over there too. I hope I can get all the plugs replugged into the right places. I'm gonna do a drawing of it before I unplug anything. and take a picture.
If I'm not on here for a few days/wk, it means I screwed up on it...
