I'm trying not to say anything about how fast the weeks are flying by, but it's hard. Oops. I think I did say it after all. Well, they are! Anyone feeling the swift passage of time besides me?
Good news...we have a carpenter beginning the first of the week on The Project. He will do most of the bathroom upstairs. He's putting in the tub and has to take out part of a wall to get it in. It's a very small bathroom. Then he will skim coat the walls and prepare them for painting. I am still looking for a tub surround or whatever they are called. BG still has some wiring to do in there.
And then, Mr. Carpenter, will tackle the upper deck and the leaky roof over the deck. It was determined that the deck needed some replacement beams and supports and part of the floor needs replacing, too. The roof will be fixed and once that is done, BG can tackle the room where the leaking was going on inside the closet.
Those are probably the biggest hurdles to jump and then painting can begin. Then the floors will be refinished and probably some carpeting put down in a couple of rooms. We still haven't gotten the outside painting done, but it's either raining or too hot! The basement will be done later. After MY basement is done!
After too long a break, we are getting back to work on The Project. Getting the help we needed...after I finally got BG to agree to that...took a little time.
For new readers, The Project is the house we bought that needs repairing. More repairs were needed than we first thought. Isn't that always the way?
I'll have to tell on myself. BG is still in the dark on this one. When I drove to the lake Tuesday evening to watch the sunset, I took his truck. It was getting dark when I came home, so I had turned on the lights. Later that night, my daughter came in and asked why the truck lights were on. Oh, oh. She then discovered the truck wouldn't start...the battery had run down. Well, I sure didn't want to wake BG up to tell him as he goes to work at 6 am during the summer. So, she called her boyfriend and luckily he could come over with some jumper cables to get the truck started. Whew! I still haven't told BG about this. Not that he would care, but I just didn't want to tell him how
One more bit of news I'm excited about...I finally have a smart phone. My old fliptop wouldn't charge, so I had to get something else and decided to upgrade. It's an iPhone 6. I'm pretty sure I'm going to like it, I just hope it doesn't take me too long to learn how to operate the thing. lol! I can't wait to take some photos with it. You think I'll get much work done this weekend? Maybe I'd better revise my list and add "play with iPhone". I hope you have a nice weekend and take some time to play, too!
Happy weekend to you!
