To make matters worse (can they get worse?), the windows installation at the house begins today and continues tomorrow, possibly going into next week, depending on the weather and whether the men can actually get the work done over today and Friday. All the blinds, drapes, and rods have to be removed, and much of the furniture as well. There are four windows on the ground level and three windows on the basement level of the house that will be removed and switched out for the new windows, so the house is going to be a mess for the next little while. And if the old drapery doesn't fit the new windows, may have to be completely altered or changed. Since my back is very bad and the doctors have told me not to do any lifting or whatever, I've had to hire someone to do all the moving of furniture and the like, as well as the removal of the drapes and stuff. Money out, money out.
Then there's the heat. The temperature is expected to hit 29oC today (with a humidex around 38oC), and there's active weather as well in the form of rain and thunderstorm expected as well. I don't deal well with the heat and the humidity, and with the pollen counts still very active as well, I don't think I'm going to feel too good over the next while...
And finally, there's the matter of whether I'll be able to live in the house the next little while, and whether I'll be able to hook the computer up for internet access and the like. While I can blog and tweet from my mobile phone, I don't know whether I'll be able to live in the house while this work is being done and after it's finished (depending on the clean-up necessary and how thorough it will have to be), so don't know how active I'll be on the 'net over the next little while.
So I'll blog again later, or whenever I have a chance.
