Last Saturday Aunt Happy turned 101. When I talked to her she told me that somebody had said she was starting to look older and that really did not sit well with her. However, she is doing good – really good for 101. But I know she would be really happy not to see 102 on this earth.
We had two very unhappy pups when we picked them up from the Vet. Skitz had to have two teeth pulled and was really angry with me. They slept most of the time and got to have a little bit of dinner. Skittlez finally relented and let me hold her. Scooter curled up in Jim’s lap for the evening. They are feeling much better today but I still feel so bad for Skitz.
The repair work is coming along quite well. There is some mess involved. It was getting dark when these pictures were taken.
Old siding down and Tyvek started.
Small hitch – need to have Charter Communications remove their box from the back so Jim could get new siding up and they could put the box back up. The Charter guy lent a helping hand.
While all this is going on, Michaela is painting the wooden shed.
Jim got a call from the roofing company. They will be here today to start on the new roof. Should be finished by Saturday. Maybe, just maybe we’ll be out of here by Tuesday.
Todd has the neatest bike. He’s going to ride it to work today because a lot of the guys he works with (at a FORD dealership) want to see the bike. It has a gas motor and gets fantastic mileage.
And this is our new ride. (I wish.) Jim took the truck in for it’s yearly maintenance and this is the loaner he brought home. I fell in love with a burgundy CTS and he thought I’d enjoy a test drive. It is really nice but I am so spoiled by our truck. The truck rides so nicely and is so comfortable. Cars just don’t seem that comfy.
Things have not slowed down around here. Our goal is still to get out of here next Tuesday.
