The topic: Been a busy week


We had a representative from our local utility company come to the house yesterday and I had to do some basic cleaning, like clean the floors and wash the sofa covers, getting rid of the recent cat messes. Not that it's really bad, I just don't want to take any chances. The reason he was coming was to check out our appliances and maybe we'd get some free upgrades on them. Like washer/dryer, frig, microwave, a/c, furnace, water heater, windows...but the washer/dryer are brand new, don't need replacing, the frig was made in 2000 so it's an "energy saver" and we're okay with the microwave. Brian installed the best windows that were available when he redid ours (back when he was in the glass business), and the water heater was replaced earlier this year when the old one sprung a leak. A new dishwasher would have been nice, but that's not considered a necessity. *lol* 


Since the water heater is in the garage (where there are litter boxes) I did some cleaning out there. He never left the dining room. But the garage is clean! Kinda!

So, we got some new light bulbs. And a new aerator for the faucet in the kitchen. A contractor will be contacting us in a couple of weeks to make arrangements to come put a blanket on the water heater. Oh, and he gave us three night lights. Running them 24/7 will cost about five cents a year in energy. 

Yeah, okay. We had to do this, though, because we get a break on our energy bill.
