My trip to the water treatment store was productive. Expensive, but productive. I knew the water was not in good shape, and I was expecting about what I got. The good news is that the new filtration and softening system will be in place tomorrow!! Hip, hip, hurray!!
I considered two different systems. One system is really well recommended, but there is not a local dealer, so installation would be about a month away, and I'm not sure how the warranty would work. The one I'm getting has an equally good reputation, has the local dealer for installation and support. It's a win/win.
I can hardly wait for tomorrow. To be able to wash clothes, dishes ......... and ME!! What a treat! And to be able to drink water from the tap, too! This has been an interesting, if challenging, few days, to say the least. I guess I should explain that I'm not going without showers. But having to drive to Allan's every day for that is a pain in the booty. I was going to have to wash clothes at his house tomorrow, and since I have 111 other things to do before I leave on Wednesday, It was going to be really inconvenient. This is going to help me a lot, even though I will probably wind up washing tomorrow night. I promise both you and me that I will not stay up too late and make myself tired for the drive.
I've done a lot of clearing the house today. I knew I needed to get the current boxes out of the way so that the ones I bring from KC will have a place to roost until I unpack them. The house looks pretty good. I borrowed Allan's vacuum, so the floors are clean, although I know we will be tracking everything in the yard into the house with the move. I think I have cleared all the spots that will have furniture, and I have devised a system for organizing the boxes. I am very excited about finally, finally getting my belongings here!
Reminder ... I may not post after tonight for a week or more. So, till next time ... peace!!
