My girls are coming from Arizona to Ohio!
Getting ready for me means being careful not to overdo it. I tend to dig into projects I have no business touching. Although, I’m extremely proud of shear volume of shingles Paige, Tiffany and I picked up last weekend!
My son decided to do the roof a week before my friends were due to arrived.
Yesterday the plumbers came, for two long overdue projects. Despite have three full baths, we were down to single shower working. If you live in a place like Ohio, you understand. This house was built in the 60′s and has had a lot of neglect. When we dug into the roofing, we discovered two layers of shingles. So the last job, was done purely to sell this place no doubt.
At one time, the tax records show this house sold for $279,000 which is a pricey house for Small Town, Ohio where the average is $91,000. While we didn’t pay close to the tax record high, we’ve decided we still overpaid. In the seven years we’ve been here, we’ve discovered the previous owners glossed over so many things to make this place look better than it really was.
The Butterscotch Martini Girls have been hearing about this monstrosity for years. In the beginning I was enthusiastic…not so much any longer.
But there are fun things I’m doing like every other year. I set the Thanksgiving table yesterday. (Almost…it takes two days.) I finished the Thanksgiving decorations and started it’s successor.
So while I can’t get much done in the house my dog ate…I can decorate!
And I can be thankful my author friends are coming for a visit!
The ingredients for butterscotch martinis are waiting!
I talked about the house my dog ate on Facebook, but haven’t blogged about it. I’ll put it on my to-do list.
