MAN, I cannot get into sharing anything with you all… there’s stuff, sure. But it seems trivial. In amidst trying modified bedrest (self inflicted, not Dr ordered – though he might if I told him what REALLY happened in my uterus!) and continuing to carry one with teaching piano, homeschool (kind of – yikes!), home church and worship gatherings and leading worship, AND on top of it all a FINALLY empty condo that has to be completely renovated so we can… SELL it!!!
Yeah, we are ready. Its just a pain, and that way we’ll have the needed money to do some things to our triplex we bought last summer… some of which is REALLY needed!!
SO we got some quotes for reflooring the WHOLE place, we are going to pay some friends to get the bathroom done and all the doors hung this weekend, and on Bryan’s Friday off, we will hopefully have enough college students to come by and pay pittance to paint the place.
Yes, 3 of the 5 inside doors were trashed, including one frame, and the front door was completley smashed in. there is stains NASTY in every carpeted room of the house, including cigarette / candle burns (yeah, she didn’t smoke?!?) and markers / crayons ALL over the wall where her kiddos slept – that won’t come off. Those are just the MAJOR things.
On the UPSIDE!! we will get a new roof, most probably, this summer! I would be more excited about a new bathroom and new kitchen counters for all three units… I don’t actually SEE the roof, but I can appreciate not getting rained on or iced in because our roof failed us!!
the BEST news EVER… my eldest sister and husband are coming to visit me… HERE in ALASKA!!! its not just the price of an international flight… its from one side of Australia to another, and then from San Fransisco to Anchorage… they’ll be enroute a good 30 hours. There’s a teeny bit of me that says, its about time someone knows what I go through when I go visit them with two children all by myself… BUT the rest of me is only excited about dropping life and enjoying family!!! YEAH!! Bryan has already put in for vacation time for that week, so it should be good.
ok. that is it for my uninspired post. take care!
