Good: The landlord bought us a new garage door.
Bad: It's been sitting in the box in the garage for a month; the maintenance guy has said he'll come at least 4 times and then not shown up.
Good: He claims he's coming tomorrow!
Bad: See above.
Bad: I need a laptop with Excel + stats patch for my Stats class this semester and I don't have one. What's more, we were told at the start of this program we wouldn't need laptops, so I'm miffed.
Good: I may have figured out a way to remotely access my desktop from the classroom laptops. Also, a classmate offered to lend me an old laptop he has lying around.
Bad : Hell neighbour has still not moved out.
Good: His flat is still showing on the agents' website as 'Sold Subject To Contract' so we are all optimistic that it will soon happen.
Good: Friends from Ohio arrive on Saturday on their way back from Holland to the States.
Bad: I only have 3 days with them before they fly home.
Good: The move to our wonderful new office building happens next week. We have a coffee shop, two restaurants (one with a pizza station) and a gym. Not sure if I'll use the gym, even though it's free, because I'd have to schlep all my stuff in on the train and anyway I love my Bikram class near home. But it's a great resource to have.
Bad: I had to clear out my desk and cabinet today (I will only have a small locker in the new building, and no desk pedestal). I've condensed everything into a small-ish bag, but I'm still not sure it'll fit in the locker.
