later in the afternoon i went to go check out some windows with my father. a day isn't wasted if you learn something new, and today i learned about windows. my eyes are wide open to yet another secret world, the world of frames and jambs, panes and grilles, sashes and sills. i've decided: vinyl fusion welded replacement windows all the way. the kind that i can tilt inwards by pressing two latches, the kind that comes with child safety locks, the kind that will give me that sweet improved energy saving feature that i've always dreamed about as a boy but never thought i'd be able to have. i mean, isn't it normal to still feel the wind outside when i sit next to a closed window? i now know the truth.
after dinner i went out to the pier 1 imports in porter square. didn't see anything worth buying, i don't think the pier 1 style is my style. i stopped by the condo briefly to check the mail (nothing from my contractor, he was suppose to give me the estimate today). i then went to the everett home depot. i had thought maybe it'd be opened 24 hours but they close at 10pm on fridays. i should've made a visit a long time ago. home depot is the homeowner's mecca. i never understood this before, but now that i'm a homeowner, it's quite obvious. i took a look at the different kind of dimmer switches, home networking wallplates/accessories, recessed lights, and bathroom sink/shower fixtures.
is it friday already? today is the one week anniversary of my layoff. most days i'm not even sure what day it is. when you're unemployed, everyday feels like a saturday. saturday is that one special day in a normal work week where you have the day off and you don't have to worry about going to work tomorrow because you have tomorrow (sunday) off as well. does that make sense? anyway, everyday feels like saturday. and even though it's only been 7 days, it feels much longer, like weeks have passed.
