After months of trials and tribulations without a complete kitchen, we have finally rejoined the modern world. This last week our stove became functional as did our dishwasher. We have been trying to get the gas turned on at the house for over a month. We called CenterPoint Entergy four times and each time the pertinent information was asked for and given only to find the next time we called to hear those unforgettable words “You are not in our system.”
Each time I called Centerpoint it took 20 minutes of listening to a machine pressing the correct number button so that you could hear another recording with more selections. AAAUUGGHHH!!!!!!!
So on Tuesday, my first day off in two weeks, I went to the local Centerpoint office hoping to have better luck than I had had so far on the phone. All went well and Tuesday a man showed up at the house with a gas meter and by that afternoon we had gas and a working stove. The next morning I cooked bacon and eggs for Lisa and the kids (and me too). It was so nice to eat a stove cooked meal in our own house.
Wednesday was also Morgan’s birthday. The family and a number of her friends went to Johnny Carino’s to eat and celebrate. Morgan had a party at the house last night. Last year the Hurricane ruined her birthday, so Lisa told her she could invite some friends over and celebrate, so she had a costume party.
I was at work and missed the whole thing, but she had a good turnout and everybody had a good time.
I joined Library Thing. It’s a website that will catalogue your books and show you who else has books like you. I’m very excited and can’t wait to get all my books listed in the system. I’ve listed a little over 200 books so for, but I still have a long way to go. My books are listed HERE.
