Can’t believe it is Thursday already!
The bathroom is primed. The two layers of flooring have been ripped out down to the hardwood. Scott finished putting in the underlay last night. Then he filled in the seams, nail holes with some sort of floor filler. He put on two coats of primer. Today he will lay down the new floor. The sink and toilet have been out of there for two days now. The new sink and vanity is sitting in my dining room. The toilet is in the garage. He really hopes to have the floor in rather quickly this morning. Lots of cutting to make it fit to the edges but it is a square blue/white design so it will line up really easy. Then he will put the new sink/vanity in and the toilet. Once that is done the painting will only take an hour or two.
Monday we spent the entire day cleaning out the mouse infested garage! That was gross too. There were boxes of stuff in there that had NO business being in the garage! Scott was going to put my Grandmother’s crystal in the Free Cycle pile. And my box of dishes from my Mother! I just about had a fit! Then all the boxes of jeans and clothes I had in the upstairs closet were out there now. Don’t ask me when he moved those! GRRR!! He also had a box of my Grandmother’s jewelry out there and the box of all my stuff from when my ex-boyfriend was in the Marines. He sent me the coolest stuff from Germany, England and all the other places he was stationed. It was all ruined. I was so mad!
Monday afternoon I posted to Racine and Kenosha Free Cycle to come and get whatever you wanted from the driveway. Most of it is gone now, the car seat, high chair, cast iron table, and filing cabinet are the only big things left out there. The rest is books, sheets, clothes, tupperware and Misc. It will all go to the curb tomorrow morning.
We never got to the basement! And I finally got into my craft room for about 2 hours last night. With Scott working upstairs, I had to stay in the main house to answer all the questions from the people coming to the house for the free stuff. Today, since most of it is gone I think I will just go down stairs and work.
Even forgot yesterday was Wednesday! My MIL came over to stitch. Oops. I got a little bit more done on my Roses and Butterfly quilt. Two more threads into it while she was here. One thread of sage and one thread of African Sunset. She was only here a little over an hour and I had spent most of that time blowing up her new pattern into big sections on the scanner so she could see it to stitch. She was winding the floss from the new kit onto bobbins. She never actually stitched anything yesterday at all.
Caitlin left Ryan for a day or so. Someone in Fond Du Lac told her while she is working from 3 p.m. until 2 a.m. Ryan is out with someone else. He came here looking for her and to tell us Thank you for all the help we have given them. Personally I believe Ryan. I think Caitlin is just looking for a way out so she can go back to the guy who has dumped her 3 times already. He (dumping guy) supposedly has given her $8000 to pay off her bills and pay us back for the car. But amazingly enough, she hasn’t returned our calls in 5 days now. So I am figuring that was all just a bunch more lies and there is no check for us for the $4139 she owes us. I stopped working on the wedding sampler needless to say! I don’t know why she is such a habitual lie teller but it drives me nuts. I literally can’t believe anything she tells me anymore.
Oh well, we were up until 11:30 last night while we waited for the primer to dry so I am going to head back to bed for another hour or so. Talk to you all later!
