Well I’m finally connected to the internet. Our appointment for a service man to come out and connect us on Monday was unfortunately cancelled and postponed until today. FringeMan prayed all night that the cable man would show up this morning. He can’t live without me being connected. He needs me talking on the phone and chatting via computer because it saves his sanity and spares him lengthy conversations.
My extra words have been pent up for too long!
Progress on the house is moving along at a snails pace rapidly. Our kitchen is basically gutted and our bathroom is about 1/2 way done, but my washer and dryer are hooked up and my little town is very thankful we once again have clean clothes. Hooking up a washer and dryer may seem like no big deal, but the washer required new hot and cold water lines run and new drain pipes installed. FringeMan’s nemesis is plumbing and these pathetic pipes are driving him straight to the nut house.
In a moment of frustration, he declared, “We never had these plumbing issues in any of our other houses!”
It was then that I reminded him we hired a plumber for our other houses. By the time we’re done here, he’ll have all the experience he needs to start installing a new bathroom upstairs. Oh the joys of being a homeowner!
Tomorrow I’ll have pictures – PROMISE! I’ll also try and catch up on some of your blogs. I feel as though I’ve missed the whole summer and it’s not a good feeling. Can’t wait to hear all your stories!
