Been a while...

We remain in like Flint.

The new dryer arrived safe and sound on time and the delivery crew threw in a free new cord and dryer duct to placate us I guess. It's pretty cool when your laundry pair has more lights and dials than your entertainment center. They make laundry fun.

Went to DFW for Thanksgiving. Had a good, if melancholy time seeing everyone again. Spirits were not necessarily high, but they were flowing freely.

Finally finished redoing the first room. We started in the foyer because the way the house is situated, no one will ever use the "Front" entrance, so if we screwed it up, it would be reasonably hidden until we could fix it. Dining room is next before the new furniture arrives.

Work is going well. I'm on nights for a few days this week, but otherwise, it is enjoyable. We attended the Christmas party last Saturday. Nice spread. A good time was had by all. (And the fact that it was held in the atrium of our favorite casino didn't hurt.)

Finally took my car to the dealer to have them check out what I perceived as a buzzing in the right front. They said there was nothing out of the ordinary other than the car was in excellent condition. So, I guess that settles it. Happily, they didn't charge me the diagnostics fee even though they had the car for two days trying to figure out if there was anything wrong.

My God, though. The traffic in Baton Rouge is LUDICROUS. The first day I went to the dealer to pick up a blower motor resistor for the Durango, I got stuck in traffic and it took we about an hour to go the final 1.6 miles to the dealer. It was a bit better the next couple times, but I'm SO glad we purchased up here in the boonies.

Definitely sounds like normalcy has kicked in! Hooray!
