My house is finished... that is... I have walls, carpet, appliances, a bilco door unit that we have to climb a ladder to get into, etc. BUT... although we have water, we don't have septic system - so we can't use the water. We have cell phones but no real phone (no internet... WAAA). We have a generator, but with the price of gasoline, that doesn't run very often. We've been eating out a lot... just moved the last of our belongings into the house on SAturday, because my daughter bought our trailer and her lease runs out on Thursday. So, we're off grid, huh? It's quiet! Except when we start the generator so I can vaccuum, or so we can curl up and watch a movie once in awhile... The cats keep going under the love seat (which they recognize) and expecting to find their old home when they pop their heads back out! that's funny! Anyways... I love my house! It's beautiful! The painting turned out very well - I recommend Behr paint very highly! I miss all of you! Our excavator doesn't return my calls, so who knows how long until we have our septic system and all the rest of our utilities... We were referred to him because our other excavator was behind and it would be "a few weeks"... yeah... shoulda waited on him... it's already been longer than that! My daughter is home from the army (Korea) and is doing ok. I'll add some pics to my webshots when I get a chance. I'm at my dad's right now using dial up... yeah... I have to go back to dial up too! This wasn't too bad though... loaded in a decent amount of time. Probably will be the only site I visit. Hey, we're having a bonfire party Saturday night.... c'mon over... I planned that way before I realized we'd be this far behind... can't cancel when you just run around telling everybody - hey, we're having a party Oct. 2. Stop by. (Shoulda kept a list of who I told... I just want to go to bed early!) Sorry for rambling... the cats are all I've had to talk to since my husband left for work this morning... and he was grouchy, so I tried to avoid him!
