Hello, my name is Egan Limbeaux. The job countdown remains steady at four days. I’m in a holding pattern as I’ve been told a promising position at my office, which was frozen immediately following our December layoffs, might become available. Those in the know are aware my clock is ticking. After January 31st, I’m a free agent. I will simply be out of a job and “free” to do what I want… which is fairly appealing.
“Free” you say. So far I dig completing some nagging house projects. Mrs. Lessinges has made it clear I will have a “honey to do list” if I’m out of work. I suppose I don’t have any complaints since she’ll be my sugar spouse.
I honed my skills by fixing our dryer vent over the weekend. There’s no possible way it will unhook itself from the wall ever again. Last week it popped out after I hung a new shelf. My duct tape patch job didn’t do the trick. Look a fool I failed to remind my wife prior to her drying a load of laundry. Drying towels without the vent connected, oops! Water vapor was everywhere.
My next household task will be fixing the dishwasher drain pipe. Presently when washing dishes in the sink, some water backflows into our dishwasher. This could have been prevented had our installers done it correctly. Now yours truly will have to fix their install which was done two years ago. Uh huh, it took me about a year to notice the problem and about another 3-5 months to call a repairperson.
My in-laws are in town staying in our basement. It’s nice to have them visit and under our roof. Baby Singe is enjoying her time with the grandparents who she doesn’t see very often. Chicagoland represent! Their presence is why I have a renewed desire to get stuff done around the house.
The relationships with in-laws becomes rather complicated when a child is brought into the mix. I know I’ve said it before, but it needs to be mentioned again. It’s hard enough to figure out your own ways to raise a child. Then mix in advice from relatives and you’ve got yourself a nice family cocktail. Cheers!
