I am still here! We had the most wonderful vacation in New England. We were having our handy man Duane do some remodeling while we were gone. Unfortunately, there was a problem with a toilet and basically, most of the house was flooded with water! The blessing was that Duane had pulled up the old carpet and had not put down the new flooring at the time of the flood. It all delayed his work and we have had some resulting problems. The tiles began to crack in our main bathroom, so the floor is being replaced along with new tile. PATIENCE! I'm not good at being patient. The house is looking great and I know it will all be worth it when it's done.
I've been sorting and cleaning and organizing.We have lived in our small cozy little home for almost 38 years, so you can imagine how much "stuff" there is to sort. We also made a trip to Seattle for Otto's 2nd birthday and I have been babysitting a lot. I do plan to blog about our trip in August when I hope to have our home back in order.
