We shut down in Connecticut piece-by-piece. We are setting up in California piece-by-piece. Our house is in a strange incomplete state. This is moving purgatory.
I’m sitting in the “Great Room.” It’s small as ‘great’ goes, but there’s a nice flow between it and the eat-in kitchen.
It is partially furnished. A sofa and two chairs arrived this afternoon. The walls are empty. A rug is on the way. We’re still deciding on a table. Cabinets are due. Both windows to the outside have temporary paper shades.
The four windows that face the California room look at dirt. That area also in the planning stage.
Our kitchen table and chairs are in, but we have no dishes nor silverware. They’re coming from Connecticut.
Upstairs, our master bedroom set is set up. The mattress is a few weeks away. Oops. We’ll stay in the guest bedroom a while longer.
As I look ahead over the not quite realistic gas fireplace, there is a blank space where a TV should go. Well, not exactly blank. There are outlets which will be hidden, but are now front-and-center. Our TVs are heading here from Connecticut.
I love TV. I missing having hundreds of channels to graze through. Even when there’s nothing on, finding out there’s nothing can be entertaining!
It’s weird to be without TV. TV has been my constant companion since birth. I really craved it today when news of the Asiana Airlines 777 crash broke.
I first saw it on Twitter, then went to SFGate and KPIX. Zilch! Neither TV nor newspapers are well staffed midday Saturday.
I craved CNN. They stream live, but since I’m in “No Man’s Land” between Comcast and Uverse. no stream for me! I ended up watching live coverage on Al Jazeera English over my cellphone.
I’m hoping to get Uverse connected this week. I still won’t have a TV set.
Piece-by-piece. It takes time.
