So, while most people were annoyed with the whole ‘government furlough’ thing I was focused on the silver living of the clouds…
My dad has been working on the little house with his time-off from work! Fantastic, no?
Looking for windows, we investigated a local salvaged-items store and found it rather pricey. As the French might say, trop chere! Who knew you could make that much money selling other people’s trash?
Since then, dad has been removing and replacing rotten boards of the little house. He has corroborated my theory that there is termite damage (though my opinion has become that the damage is perhaps too extensive to be worth fixing the house…. I didn’t want to say so, but that is my honest opinion). He plans to have a termite specialist take care of it in the spring. Wish us luck!
Wait a minute…. Spring?!?! Looks like it’s time for me to practice patience and acceptance.
Meanwhile, back to work they go. Blessings government employees, have a good week!
