What's happening here - not much!
been at a stand still for some time. I think dbf is having problems. loss of hearing? maybe. mind cluttered with kid, gkids and money problems? probably that too.
I know his 'footless' is hurting him a great deal. Has had 3 made now - none any better. And a number of businesses that rent his properties have gone out of bz - leaving him with empty bldgs and no income coming in from them. bummer.
On my side, I've been having physical problems (ok, who added in mental to that? lol!) I am probably depressed from it all.
dbf knew (as I often reminded him) that the heat would be here and I couldn't run the a/c with 2 windows broken out... he finally started getting estimates on them and the sliding door about 3 wks ago. I've had 3 guys out here measuring etc. dbf finally settled on 1 about 2 days ago - but it'll take 2 wks to get them. major bummer. It's really hot here and this little window a/c unit is on it's last leg.
I did go out and look at laminate flooring and priced the vinyl for my rooms. I'm gonna try the laminate in the back room myself and see if I can do it. It comes in planks about 7.5 x 48. In a room 10 x 10 (plus 2' in the closet) it shouldn't take too many to do it up. I was a bit afraid of putting the huge, heavy storage cabinet on vinyl - over time it'd probably dig right thru it. I don't know that for sure ... was just a thought I had. I could get a cut piece of masonite or something to set the cabinet on tho. It will be wired to the wall behind it (in case it thought it might fall over on me). I can't really do the floors yet anyway I guess because whatever it is it needs to set in the space for 2 or 3 days - and not at 100 + degrees.
The electrician came out last wk and spent 5 hrs + over there getting it working. most of it anyway. I didn't know he was even there. He called but since I didn't recognize his phone #, I didn't answer. duh.
The electrician does need to do a few more things. like hook up the dw. dbf now says I shouldn't bother with that 'old' one, that he has a newer one that came with some house/bldg he bought and I could have it... now if I can just get him to bring it out here...
I did buy a drill so I'm just gonna work on shelves and taking some things over that can go on the shelves for the next wk or 2. i've been gonna buy the shelves this wk but so far I've decided each day that it's too hot to go out - lol! like it's gonna get cooler here! I've got to put up the braces for 2 shelves - so then I'll check the temp outside again. Since I had the money in my purse for them I decided to just order water instead. The water guy came this a.m. and filled both tanks. Now I can take a shower and later I can water my tree!
I've also been searching out faucets and sinks over the past few wks. (found sink on CL - is on sink thread) I've found 2 faucets I like at a bit more than I wanted to spend - but the cheaper ones (other brands) didn't have such good reviews. I figured it'd be better to pay more up front.
And I found a stove on CL. it's a GE profile. Is that good? I might go see it if not sold yet. Hope they can plug it in so I know if it works. they want 189.00 for it. see link
I do have to find out if I can reach those knobs!
I do hope I get moved in there during this lifetime.
