I've been missing the last week or so. I've been meeting with the contractor, then the plumber, then the electrician, the plumber again 2 more times, the electrician once more for good measure. The contractor 2 more times. I've also had meetings for/with kt; a meeting for wm. Having said that, on Thursday the contractor dropped a 30 yard dumpster in front of my home for use on Monday when demolition starts in the bathroom & the roofers arrive. My family (brother & his wife, sister & her husband & my dad) arrived Friday afternoon to help me clean up & get rid of a few things before the remodel begins. Suffice it to say my sibs & their spouses along with my dad filled that dumpster out front. Found out there is gorgeous hardwood floors upstairs under all the carpeting; my brother in law took down a wall upstairs. I can use my walker through out my entire first level; still cannot get up or downstairs with-o a great deal of help. My brother & brother in law helped me upstairs when all was said & done. I broke down in tears several times today. I'm humbled & overwhelmed all at once. All of husband's unhealthy garbage is out of here ~ my dad, at dinner, said a blessing on my home; that it becomes one of healing & peace. I felt honored. My niece K moved in today as well. kt comes home for a day pass tomorrow & will be stunned. The only room not touched was hers. My niece K is going to encourage & help kt clean it up so she can paint her room. My new living room furniture arrives this coming Friday; my bedroom furniture is on backorder & won't arrive til mid to end of May, however the new mattress will be here. I special ordered it so I can sleep in bed again. My insurance will help with half the cost of the new mattress. I'm in the process of picking out flooring & tile for the kitchen, bathroom & new laundry room, so I thought I'd take a moment to update you all. Thanks for listening.
