Tuesday at Home

He got cranky, because his back is starting to hurt. We really need a new mattress, but with the flood insurance due, not to mention the car repairs, well, anyway.

He also took a trip to Whole, uh, Whole Foods. Six cans of soup cost more than two movie tickets.

I'm not sure which I hate more, the cost of food or the cost of movies.

Meanwhile, I found out I can't set up the wireless network the way I want it. First of all, it must be men who decide where outlets are going to be positioned on walls. No woman wants all the outlets behind the center of the furniture, but off to the edge where we can reach it. I can't position another computer desk for the old computer we had from his brother anyplace logical that would reach an outlet.

Then I found out he had that computer destroyed. He says the guy was going to fix it for free, but the net results are the same as if he had it purposely destroyed.

Oh, well. We'll see what adventures await tomorrow.

  1. Tuesdays are always pretty dodgy.
    Wednesday are usually better.
