Does that mean - spend it while you've got it? You can always count on the government to bail you out...
What luck - it's not too hot to work in the old house. I cleaned the window sills when I opened the windows downstairs yesterday. I turned on the fan, not the AC. The chestnut tree has stopped smelling up the neighborhood and the purple petunias I bought are fragrant enough to change the "old, empty-house smell" to something less odiferous.
Today he inserted plastic pipe with some kind of deal at each end to seal the pipe to the old one. No water leaked.
Tomorrow we will try to finish the basic repalcement of commode and sink and mebbe floor -sheet lineoleum, and window - we only have three hours...; then there's the wall treatment to cover the holes left by the iron sink... (We-I'm buying the big stuff, Jeff installs or tears out and replaces.)
I ordered the replacement ceiling today - it will be here in 21 days. I picked out the floating floor - something a little cheaper than Pergo -SwiftLoc. But we won't install until the ceiling is up. (And the furniture is OUT.)
Until then, the plan is to keep working. Window in the bathroom. - Move to another room. Empty it. Maybe the window (looks like three more after the bathroom...) then the walls in the office/bedroom upstairs... $$$$$$$$$$$$$ It's only money. And to get back my "investment" I need to clean the ducts on the furnace and price AC for the furnace...
Still, too many things left to carry out of there. SIX weeks til I have to go back to work.
On the 4th of July, we are having a picnic her in the valley. You are all invited to attend. RSVP ASAP.
Leah and Jay are coming. As are Keith, Delia and Tracy. And maybe John, Zoey and Trisha. A good time will be had by all. 90 degrees is forecast - hot "as the fourth of July" as they say.
