Our plans for the day after Thanksgiving were originally to spend the day in jammies, drinking egg nog around the fireplace.
Seriously. Both daughters had to work, so it was just going to be my lovely wife and me.
That was the plan.
Then we were contacted by friends who wanted to come see the new house. Since we've been here for a bit over six months, and hadn't had anyone over for a formal showing, it seemed to be time.
Sidebar: "No one over? What - are you anti-social?" No, it's just that it takes a long time to re-combine two households (our daughters moved back in with us), and set up housekeeping in a new place.
Then Samsung contacted us about our washing machine. Seems it was one of the 'splody ones, and they needed to perform an upgrade to keep that from happening.
And oh, yes, the repairman had to be here while the guests were arriving.
But he arrived early, after calling ahead to ensure it was okay, and only took 20 minutes to effect the repairs.
The guests also arrived early, but we were ready, and all was well. They were duly impressed, and we had a great afternoon of conversation.
It was a good day, and now today will be our quiet day. More or less. :)
