Learning to live with mess, dust & constant upheaval!

This week has been an interesting....to say the least...experience to live with, especially for an OCD person like me. Popster was making fun of me cleaning the house like a mad woman on Mon, the day before they came, because I didn't want them to find "dust woobers" under the stove or refrigerator!

Anyway have I totally hated it? No! Just the times when I can't find something...which is about 10 times a day. It's not as bad as I thought it would be, probably because I planned ahead a little bit & having a microwave, toaster oven & coffee pot makes for a "livable" situation. The hard part is the dust that settles throughout the house but I clean it the best I can every night & the worst of that is almost over.

Also it is very tough on Molly as she loves to be where everyone else is & I have to barricade her either in the living room or downstairs. The weather isn't exactly cooperating as we had snow almost every day this past week & now it's bitter cold....they are predicting -12 deg for tonight....so she isn't able to be outside much.

I am finding it fun to watch the progress & I think they are used to the camera flash now! Jim was here for a few hours yesterday & again this morning to get the final coat of spackle on so hopefully tomorrow they will be able to paint. We went out today to get the paint, pendant lights....yes Popster now knows what they are..., & a microwave. The cabinets are being delivered tomorrow so there should be some progress showing by the end of this week.

Scott stopped by this morning & here's Diesel & Cedric waiting in his truck


 This is my "doggie gate" to keep Molly downstairs!

  1. Keep your eyes on the prize.
    Well on earth did you find the expression, Dust Woobers"? I laughed so hard I nearly choked.
    The dogs are lovely in the back of the truck but Miss M looks a wee bit perturbed at her new location. I'm surprised she hasn't figured out how to clear it in a single leap.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

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

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.

MISTAKE #1

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

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how 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 August......to 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…

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!"
