06:36 pm - Hmm.
I guess we are staying here (this house) until January - the landlord called and offered to reduce our rent by $300 a month if we would stay. Um, okay - we were having trouble finding a place anyway, this gives us some more time for the stars to align such that that can occur. Plus I don't have to throw a confusing address change into the less-than-volitile atmosphere surrounding my attempts to get my retirement sorted out. That would probably be the cause of another year or so's delay. The rent reduction is gratefully accepted, and all I can hope is that we have a milder winter so the savings doesn't all go to the electric company.

If I sound cranky, I'm mostly just tired and unsettled. I don't actually anticipate getting to feeling settled for a long while hence. Depending, for example, on how long it takes until we are installed in a stairs-free environment. Or how long before I figure out why these particular ants don't die when I use the soapy water defense. I've varied the soap/water ratio a fair bit without noticeable change in result; perhaps next I shall switch brands of soap.

I ran across an article in Mother Earth News that details how to make inexpensive storm windows with 4-mil vinyl and molding strips. Given our heating bills last winter, I think I'll be making these myself within the next month.
