The angle adapter for the heat pump arrived on Thursday. Yesterday morning after work, I got the last two units vacuumed, leak checked, and online. If the refrigerant deficiency from the longer than standard line run is of any consequence, it is not yet apparent.
It is nice to have climate control. Outdoor temperatures have been very pleasant the last week or so, but that will change next week. I am very happy to know that, barring a failure with the new heat pump, I will not have to endure the miserable 95+ degrees inside, sweating profusely even directly in front of the fan, too damn hot to sleep days like last summer.
The car goes in for its first warranty repair when I clock out in the morning. The door locks are possessed. A couple months ago, the passenger front stopped responding to either the remote or the switch on the door. I scheduled an appointment, but it started working again the day before I was supposed to take it in. I canceled the appointment, and went on my way. It had a couple more brief episodes over the next several weeks, but none that lasted long enough to have Toyota to look at it.
Last week, I noticed that the driver side rear door had decided to go on strike. So far, it has exhibited no spontaneous recoveries. It is probably waiting to make a fool of me at the dealership.
Remember the bitch at work who constantly criticized everyone and had been threatening to quit for almost a year? Well, she finally made good on that threat. Yesterday was her last day. She taught me a lot, but I won’t miss her. Nothing anyone ever did was right or good enough in her eyes. Kinda reminds me of an ex-wife.
I have been tapped to be her replacement. It pretty much forces my boss to give me the promotion that he has been dangling in front of my nose for about three months.
I got another reprieve this weekend. At some point Friday morning, the decision was made to cancel Sunday production on my machine. I will actually get a day off this week! If I had known a day earlier, perhaps a range day could have been scheduled.
The pen that I tried the Private Reserve ink in seems to have been permanently damaged by the process. Even after a thorough cleaning and fresh ink, it still leaks at the bottom of the barrel. I hope to be able to find a way to reseal it and keep the pen serviceable. This makes me very hesitant to try any new brands of ink.
I need to figure out a way to get another Lowe’s 10% off coupon. I wasted mine trying to use it on my storage building, only to find out after it had already been entered (and thereby no longer usable) that only the insulation that I bought at the same time was eligible for discount. I still need a dishwasher and several interior doors. They fucked me out of $200 worth of discount, and I’m going to try to make it up somewhere.
