Back to Reality

First day back to work after a loooong and much-needed break. Yesterday was Scott's dad's birthday. Age 59. We went to Applebee's for dinner with Ken & Deloris. Then back to our house to visit a little until Jake's bed time. They loaned us their box of family photos, which I've been scanning. They were able to identify a bunch of the unlabeled pictures. Still lots more to get through.

Pouring rain yesterday. Windows leaking again. Had to take emergency measures - covered the living room window with plastic on the outside. Had to nail it to the house since it was so windy. Noticed this morning as I was leaving that the plastic is also weighted down with clamps.

This morning the shower fell off the wall. Yep, the whole thing. The metal pipe broke. Water spouting out of hole in the wall, plaster chunks in the tub. Sigh. Whose idea was it to buy a gazillion-year-old house anyway??
