An update on the house…

September 25, 2006

Surprise, surprise.  All the drywall is up, it’s been taped and spackled(sp?), and the sanding is done.  The painters will be here tomorrow!  All I can say is WOW!  They are ahead of where I thought they would be.  The only thing we’re waiting on to finish is the carpet analysis.

As for our failing appliances…  My DH (Darling Husband in case you aren’t message board savvy) is awesome!  The water heater, FIXED.  Refitted the pipes that were corroding and everything is cranking fine.  The fridge, FIXED (and working better than ever).  Once he pulled it out it was easy to see the problem, DUST BUILD-UP!  Yuck!  He got that all vacuumed out and that baby is chilly now!  The drier (you mean I didn’t mention that was sucking lately too), FIXED!  He pulled that puppy apart and found a community of dust bunnies lining in there!  It was gross (ask Laurie, she saw pictures).  You’d be surprised at what the lint trap misses!  Now that puppy is working full blast.  My clothes are dry in less than a full cycle!

So, luckily, we avoided a dreaded trip to Lowe’s for new stuff.  For now everything is humming like it should…
