Structure Borne Noise

Sometimes I envy the husband, and the fact that he works from home full-time. These feelings surface in very specific situations. Say, when I have to leave extra early in the morning because there’s a snowstorm to slog through to get the little man to his bus stop on time, and myself to the office. But winter has passed. And I am a far more social creature than he and revel in the company of my co-workers, so I enjoy working in our lovely office space. And I’ll be enjoying it even more this week. The roofers are coming, to completely replace our roof and gutters. The computer room is in the upstairs of our house so I imagine there will be much distracting activity overhead while the husband attempts to work. But this will all be over with, allegedly, in two to three days. Though we’ll be paying for it for a while longer than that…

up up and away

Bonus: For my fellow Firely fans…Operation Rescue: Ariel Ambulance reached their initial fundraising goal and acquired the ambulance prop from the Ariel episode. Expect to see it at cons sometime in the near future.
Plus: Recently the husband had been telling me about the Nintendo Wii, and it’s strange wireless controllers with built in motion sensors. But seeing it only reinforced my reservations. I fear the little man will a) accidentally whack someone in the head while playing; b) lose the controllers; or c) both.

  2. Hey thanks, and hello!

    This whole roofing thing certainly has been strange so far. Yesterday the dudes showed up around 7am and didn’t leave until…9:20pm. Then this morning, just as I was making my coffee, I looked out the patio doors in the kitchen to see some dude on my deck. They’d come back to work at 6:30am. But they were only here until noon today (according to the husband). Then, just as we were making dinner this evening we looked out to see they’d returned, again, and now they’re still hammering away, dangerously close to the little man’s bedtime (yesterday it went on way after). Tomorrow they’ll be working on the gutters and then hopefully this whole thing will be done. Aside from us looking around for nails…though they do seem pretty thorough about cleaning up, thankfully. Sigh.

  4. Thanks Abi! Btw, If I’m going to eat convenience foods at work, I prefer Amy’s or Tasty Bite or Deep Foods (especially the Dal Masala).
