Change of Plans

Well, that didn't work.

We decided that we'd do a bit of housecleaning, then load up Katie and Julie and head to the pool, because it was the first decent day this week for swimming, following a lot of cold and rain. We got dressed and pulled into the parking lot at 4:40 PM.

And saw the sign announcing that they were closing at 5 PM today, because they've rented the pool out for a party. *sigh*

Katie and Julie were very disappointed. daisy_knotwise took them out in the backyard to spray each other with hoses while I spent a bit of time doing triage on the library. It's still not cleaned out, but it's now clean enough to clean. :)

We were going to try to hit the pool tomorrow morning, but the forecast is for a high of 75 degrees and rain.


Speaker to Mixers

Meanwhile, on Friday I called the repair shop that has had my busted monitor speaker for two months as of tomorrow and asked how it was coming, because the last time I'd called -- a month ago -- they'd said, "We'll call you when it's done." They checked and reported that there was a "parts problem" and that they'd get back to me.

This morning, they called and talked to Gretchen while I was in the shower. Apparently, the parts problem has been solved and I can pick up the working speaker on Monday.

And then I should have a working studio again.

I hope...
