Life seems to have gotten away from me for awhile and the blog kept getting put aside. Nothing major at least healthwise just normal busy stuff plus having a contractor disappear and declare bankruptcy with our renovation not finished. Uck! It's still not finished and we are 2-3 weeks away from the one year anniversary of it starting. We've had discussions and e-mails with one of the sub-contractors and our lawyers and hopefully that part of things will be finished soon. They supposedly have the missing pieces for our powder room from the counter people who we haven't heard from and supposedly will install it for us and then that will be done! But I'm not holding my breath.
Let's see what else - Christmas of course, 4 1/2 weeks awy with shipboard internet (better but still not great) and preparing the house for the next stage of renovations - new flooring, trim and doors throughout the rest of the house, a possible re-work of the fireplace and a redo of the stairs and bannister (need restaining as they our light oak and we're going with dark like in the kitchen). I'd like hardwood upstairs and down but John is thinking carpeting for the upstairs and stairs. Hmmmmm Of course all this means that everything has to be packed away and boy do we have STUFF.
Coming up on my 2 year checkup and mammo the first week of April. Hard to believe its been 2 years since the cancer was discovered. Please ladies get your mammograms done - thats the only way mine was found as it was so tiny.
Will write more tomorrow about what I/we've been up to but for now I'll share with you this picture of the first day of our vacation - do you really call it vacation when you're retired?
