Stickypants

What a busy day.

The air conditioning tech came today - took one look at the unit - packed up his stuff and said that he can't do anything because the whole thing was installed wrong. Now we're waiting for the landlord to get his act together because the guy who originally installed it needs to fix it. Mercifully the technician didn't charge us for his visit.

I spent the rest of the morning on the phone with the arnona office trying to figure out why the bi-monthly property tax bill hasn't shown up even once in a month and a half. It took half an hour on the phone, three e-mails, and scanning half a dozen documents but I finally managed to organize the 'tik' and get everything sorted.

We had attributed Buzz's exhaustion and grumpiness over chag to some new teeth and his late bedtimes. This morning however he seemed like a real 'nebach' - his throat seemed to be bothering him and his intermittent fever was back with a vengeance. I made an appointment with our favorite family pediatrician and we took him in. Turns out he has a very sore throat, ears bordering infected, and possibly strep (the dr did a throat culture) but we won't know the results until tomorrow. Until then we have cough syrup and tylenol and thus begins sleepless night number 5. Joy.

Rice salad for dinner to use up some of our leftovers.

Then I spent two excruciating hours sitting at the first 'tenants meeting' for the building. Mostly people complained that the halls don't get cleaned often enough and that the cleaning costs too much.

Finally at 11pm, I walked back into the house. Exhausted and unfortunately energized. Happily Z had used the time that I was out to wash all of the dishes left from chag/shabbos. Then we spent over an hour and a half trying to get Buzz settled in his bed.

Gosh am I tired.
