All this and still trying to work

All of this and trying to work as well. That’s right, not retired yet. I’ve got a fair number of customers who depend on me to keep their sites ranked and business coming in though the web.

There is one room in the house that we are actually using, it’s what we are calling the “extension”. It’s what used to be the garage but the last owner turned it into an extension, or an apartment. It’s certainly not in great shape but it DOES have electricity. So we are using it for both storage and my home based working space.

Nice, right?

Well one of the major issues was and still is to a degree, is the prevalence of creepy crawlers. The roaches aren’t too bad because they really don’t even show until the are dead. But because of spiders and such I decided to bug bomb the place . . . just couldn’t handle them all over the place.

So, I bombed the crap out of the place and walked into a grave yard the next day, dead roaches all over the place. Not little ones either, everything is big in Texas right?

So, had to move them to the side a bit just so we could walk in and out. 🙂

However, the point of the post is that with the house being closed up on itself for so long, the the bombing, i’s not exactly fresh air in here. The screen door for the sliding door we use to get in here was TOTALLY jacked and not working, and I couldn’t keep the slider shut all of the time.

So, ran down to home depot, picked one up for around $65, came back to the house and dropped it in there . . . and it didn’t fit. Easy enough to fix as they make them reversible. Took the half hour to do it right, got it back in there with the help of my very able assistant (thanks Vivian) and we are ready to roll.
