I can't actually move out into the main room until after the electrical gets hooked up, and my electrician can't come until Wednesday. I'm not sure how long it will take, but I know that both Gary, my electrician, and Daryl, my plumber, are working about 20 jobs at a time and they are doing their very best for both Leigh (my contractor) and me, so I'm working on patience.

Today I mopped my floors. It is the first time I've seen them or my kitchen counters in weeks, so it is as if they are brand new again! I have actually had a quite glorious day all to myself and the solitude is magnificent! I've been cleaning, writing, keeping up with new friends in Japan and sending my best thoughts their way, and just moving at my own pace. I bathed Chauncey in the rain this morning. He wasn't at all convinced, but by the time I got to my own shower along about 2PM the rain had stopped.

Anyway, it has been a long week, but we survived and I no longer have to dread the sheetrock! There are still a number of patches to be done in my bedroom, but that will wait until after I am able to move back into the main room. It will be more dust, but nothing like what we've been through the last two weeks so I'm not worrying about it.

I'm not sure what will happen this week. I think the 1/2 bath may be installed which would certainly be lovely. The only door in the house (other than closets, that is) is that 1/2 bath and that will make things easier when there are so many people here. Barb painted the room last Thursday and Leigh got most of the baseboards in, so we should be about ready for Daryl to set the toilet and sink. And at least some electrical will happen this week also. I believe Leigh has asked for the entertainment center and the phone lines to be first on the priorities so that I could at least spend my evenings in there.

And lots of fun stuff is in the future, whether this week or later on. I will be getting my convection oven, my range hood, my new fridge and my small freezer, and kitchen cabinets including a pantry so once again I will have places to put things! My new front door is at the painters as well.
