A Day in My Springtime Life
Last night I had to clear out my downstairs bathroom and fitting room, so the contractor could start work this morning on a tub-to-shower conversion. My dining room and living room are a disaster area (not they are not a disaster at other times, it's just way worse now, because the contents of those two rooms is now in there with all the stuff that actually belongs in there). The old tub and surround are gone, the new water lines and spigots are installed, and the drywall over the water lines has been replaced with greenboard (which is how it should have been to begin with, but I have a sneaking suspicion that the addition on my 150+/- year old house, which is about 35 years old, was built without plan or purpose by a few guys with a case of beer and some power tools and a Lowe's card. Floors not level, corners out of square, walls not plumb, a complete jakeleg job). He says he'll finish up tomorrow, so tomorrow night I get to put everything back!
I'm not any less busy than I was, and I'm running out of time before we leave for Indy on the 26th. Only one prom dress is still here, so that's a plus. Trouble is, I have TWELVE wedding gowns, all of which have rather poofy skirts! And that's not counting the career- and resortwear stuff, wedding party attire, and pageant dresses.
Oregano and Barbecue are growing, and by the time we get back from Indy they will be too big to get under the fence and will be able to be out all day like Crockpot and Drumstick. I'll be very glad when they start laying; sometimes I think if we had a dozen hens we could sell all the eggs and then some!
I have another post in the works I had planned on posting tonight, but this will have to do. The other one requires two particular photos that I haven't had time to slurp off my camera yet. Meanwhile, I'm tired and need to get some sleep. Much to do tomorrow!
