Just checking in

Not to much going on in the building site.  They have the roof on so if it starts to snow ... which will be any day now it will be good.  Everything else is set for winter building...so it shouldn't be long now before the windows are put in.  I was really hoping for more progress, but there is building mania going on in Winnipeg, and the trades are very busy.  Fortunately we are still experiencing high resale values for our homes we are trying to sell and the economy is great.  I have been a little lax in getting the house ready for resale...I still have two or three major things to do........every friggin thing seems to be taking a dump....

First the bi fold door to our utility closet fell off......all the plastic brackets suddenly ...said to each other...when Balonie opens the door the next time....let's collapse.  And they did. The house is 27 years old and nobody has these brackets anymore for the door.  And yes, I interneted it. Perfectly good doors...with broken plastic brackets to open and close them with.  huh.... Our Microwave bit the biscuit a few days ago...whaaat's going on here?

 I am contemplating getting all the carpets cleaned....the last time I did that the carpet guy slipped down the stairs...lost control of his machine and made a big hole in the wall...so now I have a carpet machine of my own.  Gord bought it a few years ago and we never used it.  I just took it out of the box yesterday.  OY.... that looks like a lot of work!  Our carpets are getting older and some of them especially in high traffic areas are getting a little wrinkled looking and I am scared if I get them cleaned...or if I do it myself  they will be screwed up big time.  The living room and all the bedrooms and hallways down on the other levels are like new I am not worried about them.  It's just this little space we live in on the third  level of our house that  holds our bedroom, kitchen, TV room and office that is kinda ugly...yet acceptable. 

Man it will feel good to live on one level. A Bungalow built for two.  No more stairs.  As much as I hate this house for all the stairs...I love it.  It's so attractive with the vaulted ceilings and the different levels.  Now it is the time to give it to some family that has the time and energy to enjoy the all the rooms...and the back 40. 

Hey I have some  vintage 80's stuff to get rid of if you are looking for a deal.

Balonie....getting ready to make  the Friday Nite homemade pizza... It's always a crapshoot...sometimes it's  good...sometimes it tastes like ass. I love to keep Gord guessing.

I know you'll be sad to leave, yet happy in your new home! It's great that the economy isn't hurting the housing market there, like Donna said ours sucks BIG TIME! Makes me sick, actually, but it is what it is.

Take care; you'll get it all done, I have faith in you. :)
