This falls straight into the category of “I wish I had a camera.”
Our ever resourceful bus driver, tired of the window that kept flopping open (and it’s not exactly warm outside either) and of her repeated maintenance reports being ignored, fixed the problem. She raided the first-aid kit and taped the window closed with THREE BAND-AIDS! We’ll see if it survives the trip home.
(It didn’t. It has popped open twice already. Maybe I should start carrying duct tape.)
UPDATE: Another lady and I were able to rig it and so far, it has stayed closed! Damn. This is like being at home. Do I have to fix everything?!
Tomorrow is FRIDAY! *happy dancing* It’s isn’t that I’m not grateful for all of the work that has come my way this month. I am. Truly, I am. I’m just incredibly tired. Wake me when it’s over, please.
I’m still having a hard time understanding how a tax cut can help you if you’re one of the people who was put out of work and has no income.
I’m encouraged by some of the energy efficiency provisions in the stimulus package giving you credit for things like energy efficient windows, insulation, and water heaters.
Weatherization is a good thing. It moves products. It saves energy. You spend less on your utility bill and that leaves you more money to spend elsewhere. At least that part of it is good all the way around.
Too bad they’re only for 2009 and 2010. Won’t help me with the new water heater I bought last year!
