I had such a busy day doing really hard things. Not physically hard, but mentally so. I have the Verizon Triple Play and the battery on my phone box has been dead for almost a year and beeps all the time. It's downstairs so it doesn't bother me. Verizon wanted me to buy a new one myself and put it in. I refused. Today they finally broke down and sent me one and I had to figure out how to put it in. Mission accomplished. Now my phone will work again (for a short time) during a power outage.
The other struggle was in the attic. You know all about my new little window up there which I love so much. I had a storm window inside the room when there was just a louver on the outside peak. My new window is not double glass so I decided to clean and put the inside one back up for the winter to prevent heat loss. I took it outside to hose it down and when I took out the screen the two sliding glass panels came out too. Great for cleaning. Bad for putting back together because I hadn't studied how it worked. After about a zillion combinations, I finally found the right one. I left off the screen so I can reach through and open my outer window when it gets too warm up there. I am so happy I am blessed with patience, a logical mind, and the ability to fix things. My mother and I always repaired everything around the house because my dad was clueless. I don't know how they managed Christmas toys without my help. I couldn't do the mower battery but I did the big phone battery. There are only a few things I've had to walk away from in my lifetime because I couldn't do them. It's very satisfying when you finish a frustrating project, isn't it?
