No luck, but they told me at Aries that they do have them at their new location, just the other side of the highway. But, by then I was so pooped out that I wasn't willing to go to another store. Going to the gas station for "cheapie Thursday" was all I could manage.

I got home and found that Stirling had installed the screen door. w00t! I have only been home for an hour and the house is already noticeably cooler, now that I have a window and the patio door open.

It's always so nice to get a good surprise! Glad things worked out, except for the microplane...

I made it through the second day with kids. I've been back since last Friday. A glass of wine and some time on the glider helps me when I e had a long day. Just sayin...

No I didn't! It's still missing. I have looked in the freezer and on top of the fridge, on the bookcase, in the washroom...

I'll just have to wait for the blue minute guys to put it back. (A Matter of Minutes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, Twilight Zone episode)
