Day one recap

Saying goodbye to the old before demolition went reasonably well to start, if you don't count long it took to move the refrigerator into the living room....the doors had to come off!

It's getting a little crowded in here but mission accomplished!
I guess I'd better get used to seeing this in my driveway.......although I did ask Jim if he could be done by Friday......he didn't answer me!

 Now that is one scary looking "dust woober"!  He even called in reinforcements!

Things were still on track at this point but then the problems began.......

See that was put in backwards....for a reason, so it didn't open into the room......problem it's backwards...Jim doesn't like it....needs to be replaced...should be 36 inch door anyway....okay add it to the list...Popster just shrugs his shoulders!
Next problem when they pull down the ceiling they discover a leak in the vent pipe.......couldn't get up on the roof as we had a combination of snow, sleet & freezing rain all day so hopefully tomorrow will be better so that can be fixed.
Next problem the wall between the kitchen eating area & the living room had to come down but hopefully it can be put back up without changing too much.

They got everything cleaned up & were pulling out of the driveway when I realized that no matter how much I "cranked" the thermostat the furnace wasn't coming on.  It was a brisk 59 degrees in the house as we had kept the heat off most of the day!  Apparently they forgot to turn back on one of the circuit breakers so that was fixed fairly quickly.

Look at how big the kitchen is now...I'm liking it already!


  1. Molly appears to be looking for her bowl!

  2. Molly had a very traumatic & fun day! The trauma....her bowl is in the laundry room which meant she had to go downstairs!!!
    The fun......she had all those tools to "steal"!!!!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val
