Hey, I'm still alive and kicking!
Contrary to what you might have believed, I am here and so far doing fine. Mo got me hooked on Facebook/farmville, and am totally addicted. It allowed me to spend money, without actually spending money. The budget is still not settled, but at least I am getting paid.
The other house is moving along, but not without complications. The entire house had to be re plumbed, because the pipes had frozen and split, even the meter had to be replaced. All the shutoffs had to be replaced and as of today, the outside faucet and the sink both have a little work to finish. The painting has yet to be started, but half of the new lighting has been installed.
We opted for a roof repair instead of a new roof because of the financial situation, but they tell me that it is good and so far I have not seen any leaks.
I spent a lot of time conversing with a very sweet younger man on line, and we have struck up a sweet friendship, and he has an accent and accents have always made me weak in the knees. But since he is quite a distance away, the Internet is all we have to relate. And at my age, maybe that is for the best.
This month will be the big push at the house. With Winter just around the corner, I need to get in and get a furnace installed. Not that the money situation is any better, but you have to do what you have to do, On the up side, the car will be paid off on the 15th of October, and I can start getting NFG paid so they will connect the furnace.
I have missed you, and promise to take pictures as we progress.
