20111112, Marilee


Well, the problem with the van is not a pulley; the bolts that hold the engine block have sheared and the block has shifted. Apparently this is going to take several days to fix, so I'll be home for a while. The shop guy said it was because they were old, but that shop put the engine in just a few years ago, so I don't think age is the problem.

My new cleaning lady, whose name turns out to be Lucilla (my neighbor was wrong), did a good job, although there are a few places she didn't dust on computer equipment. I'll remember to point those out in two weeks. I had a lot of trouble staying awake while she was here and napped from right after she was here until the cats insisted on dry food about a quarter to six. The shop closes at six, so I called there first. I'm still sleepy and I think I'll have to nap again soon.
