Days 139 through 141

It was a long weekend for us trying to get a few things done at the house.  First a little bit from things that were done on Friday. Now that the shower tile was finally dry, they could install the fixtures in the master shower.  Richard saw it before I…

Days 137 and 138

Wednesday (Day 137) was not a very busy day at the house.  Creative Kid and I were there all day because we were supposed to meet Century Link to get our DSL set up for when we move in the house, they never showed up but that’s a complaint for…
