Today we were supposed to go buy light fixtures and then work on installing them for the rest of the day. Instead, we slept in, Matt went to the garden and then the tool rental place to return the rebar cutter he’d rented for the paths project at the community garden, we played with the dogs for a while, did who knows what else around the house, and finally hit the road at 3pm. Then we spent 2 hours at Home Depot trying to pick out light fixtures, a new ventilation fan for the kitchen, and other sundries. We decided we needed to check out what other options Lowes has in the light and fan departments, so we went there (it’s just up the street from HD), got a couple things, and then back to HD to finish up.
It was almost 7pm by the time we were done with the shopping and fairly satisfied* with the results, and I was getting hungry, tired, and cranky. Actually I had probably been hungry/tired/cranky since about 5pm. That was fixed by fish burritos at Gorditos. Happily home with the pups, we were not about to start wiring the new fixtures. Oh well, at least we did the shopping part.
*Except that neither HD nor Lowes carried replacement filters for our respirator. Even online I am only finding 10-packs; maybe that’s why the stores don’t carry them. Sigh.
