Daughter drew me a picture for Mother's Day. She informed me she wanted to go home right after lunch, so I have a quiet afternoon alone-- well, almost alone. Kitten is determined to sleep on me. I'm going to work on laundry and do some things in the kitchen.
Yesterday we went to see Brother and his family. Baby Nephew is wonderful. He weighs less than 7 pounds, so he is very small. It was a very pleasant day. I spent all day Friday in the office, so I haven't had an opportunity to do any of the things I normally do at home on my time off. I will be able to get some of it done this afternoon.
It's another busy week, and once again I'm flying solo. I won't have the drop-ins this week, as the property guys are headed to a camp to build a deck and seating. Tomorrow they will begin installing the new carpet downstairs. That will complete the renovations from ice dam damage back in March. The final cost will be over $15,000 for the repairs. We are still seeking a solution for the issues that caused the ice dam. Of course, it would be easier to fix if we knew what had caused the problems. We suspect there are several different issues contributing, including some design problems. We are going to have some engineers come in and give us proposals.
It's about time to begin my countdown to vacation. I'm ready. I'm tired. I need some time off.
