The soonest Salvation Army will pick up the love seat is next Thursday. So I figured I'd get the chair and a half next Friday.
Then last night I'm all Why Wait?? I figured out a scheme. I'll have the mover guy I hired take the love seat down to the garage. There's a flat, unused area where I can store it temporarily. This morning when the building manage got in, I went down and asked him for use of the dolly tomorrow to help with the chair and then love seat. And then told, not asked, him that I was going to store the love seat and where. He was not happy but didn't have the nerve to tell me no. Whew.
So Saturday. Tomorrow. The plan is to meet Marco - the guy the Dolly app assigned to me - at Costco. Pick up the chair and bring it here. 10:30. On one of the hottest days of the year. That last bit didn't dawn on me til too late but what ever.
I have a plan in place. That's the takeaway.
I wonder if I can remember to get gas at Costco tomorrow. Probably not.
I also designed a new bag during my swim today. I need a better Mariner game bag. I spend way too much time at the game digging through my big game bag. I need a bag to go inside of it that holds all the stuff except my sweater, hat and thermos. It's a simple zipper bag with a convertible handle. I'll make it out of Mariner fabric, of course.
No other big plans. Still too hot to go out if I don't need to and I don't need to. The cumulative hot is now a thing. I noticed this morning that my nearly always very cool underground parking garage was not nearly as cool this morning. This is a 110 year old building. It's made of concrete and massive timbers. Places like the underground garage take a long time to heat but but then also... a long time to cool down. Ditto the lobby which is half tile and half spackled wallboard. Once that tile really heats up, it's toasty til winter.
And speaking of the building, the two units for sale are still for sale. Now on the market for nearly a month. I'll bet their owners are really frustrated having watched everyone else's unit fly to sales in a week or less. One of those people who sold about a year and a half ago and moved to Italy was in the neighborhood this week. The sewing shop owner and I both saw her. She was strange when she lived here - strange in dress, manner, speech and deed. We both noted, as she walked by that a year and a half in Italy has ratched up her strange in dress about 125%.
I just saw a tweet of this menu from a pop up shop in Pike Place Market. I love the Pay-it-forward card idea. I'd totally buy one of those.
I need to make an appointment with the eye doctor for my annual visit. I can't make it online. I have to call so I keep putting it off. I think eye doctor appointments are annoying. The doctor part is fine, it's all the 'focus on the red roof', 'can you see this? how about now?', 'these drops are only going to sting a little'... I think calling is annoying. The combo just prevents it from happening.
Laundry. I just remembered I need to do laundry and I need to wash this swimsuit cover up I still have on. Hmmm guess I'll get that started.
