Some days are longer than others! Today was one of the more exhausting days that we've had for some time.
We started out early by driving the Accent and my van over to the RV repair place and picking up the Alfa. We left the van there and drove the Alfa and the Accent across town to the hitch place and had them finish the Blue Ox installation. They hooked up the Accent and we headed back to the RV repair place to drop it off again so they could install the Air Force One. Craig says he could have installed both, but he wanted to have authorized installers so that we could feel good about the result.
On the way we stopped at a large parking lot and did a series of practice turns around some large plastic water bottles (our version of traffic cones). We both drove and we each took a turn outside watching to see how the toad tracked behind the Alfa. It was fun.
We then dropped the Alfa and Accent off and returned home in my van. We will be able to get the car back in a few days, but they are still waiting for our new back decal for the Alfa. Might as well leave her there.
We have also asked them to do an air pressure test to see if they can find and fix two "whistle" noises in the front windshield. They are quite annoying.
It was just past noon when we got back home, but neither of us felt like doing any work. Craig has finally agreed to buying some safety equipment for the window painting project. I don't know if it is because he is tired of me nagging, or because he has had a number of people tell him he should, as comments or in person, or if he has just gotten a bit scared when he was out on the ledge. I don't care why.
We spent some time this afternoon looking at safety harnesses online, and then decided we should go and talk to someone at REI that might give us some advice about such things.
At the same time, Craig was reading the morning paper and mentioned he would like to see "Snow White and the Huntsman." We don't go to movies very often, but since the movie theatre and REI are in the same shopping center, we decided to do both this afternoon.
The movie was OK. Not great, but OK. We did get some information from REI, but they were unable to give us any advice as to what to do. (Liability reasons.) We will probably be ordering some rope and a harness over the weekend.
Exhausting! But it felt like progress.
