    As much as I like the remodel jobs we are doing around here I’m tired of contractors in my house!
    Right now I’m in my sons room hanging out.
    My poor dogs have too stay outside, my cat is locked in a room and the little Chihuahua is with me because the front door has to stay open so the workers don’t scratch it up.
    This guy comes and goes or shows up 3 and works 2 hours.
    I’m over it!! His work is great but it’s slow!

    I know you've done your daughter's room and the fireplace. What else is being done?

    It feels more immediate and makes better television. Reporters’ lives are dirt-cheap. (Speaking as a journalism graduate.)

    Good Afternoon all.
    Trying to find one photo in amongst lots of photos is really difficult. I eventually found it though.
    Last night i picked a pumpkin flower and gave it to the torts. Later when i went back there was no trace of it anywhere. And it was the first time they had eaten it. Also keep in mind that they are so busy grazing in their outdoor enclosure that when they come back in at night they are not very hungry anymore. I was very impressed.
    Well not much more going on. Except work has upgraded my computer so there are lots to check. To make sure everything is there.
    Not see you all later.

    Office floor, walk in closet, moved and added doors and flooring in our room.

    The fireplace isn’t even done We waited for the cabinets to come in and we were one short so waiting for it so we can build the platform for the kick plate. We also put recessed lighting in 3 rooms.

    It was fine in the beginning but this guy really does help because my husband travels a lot so he just doesn’t have time to do all the work.

    My husband is heading back to China for 23 days soon! It’s his 6th trip there this year.

    Good afternoon all!

    I started today with a wasp sting on my finger :( It was lurking on my dressing gown. I still haven't found the little #&£%*?* to murder it

    I got stung on my hand last year while gardening and my whole arm swelled up. My doctor prescribed a second antihistamine that I could take alongside the one I had at home and also antibiotics.

    I am taking both the prescribed antihistamine (I had some left) and the other again and this time the swelling is restricted to the finger so far. Hopefully thst is where it will stay.

    Anyhow, I went to yoga thinking it would take my mind off the discomfort and we went for our favourite coffee-shop-cum-bakery afterwards. There's nothing like a cheese scone with marmite to take your mind off your hurts ;)

    I hope you are all having a good Thursday
