We have been busily preparing for some repair work in our home. We have cracks in the drywall on our ceilings and walls due to our house settling. We had about 30 anchors install several years ago and, it seems, the settling has stopped. A contractor is scheduled to be here Wednesday (9/24) to start the work. After he finishes a fellow will start painting the ceilings. Almost all the walls have wallpaper on them, so we haven’t decided what to do about those yet. We may remove the wallpaper and paint them. The Decider, no not George Bush, hasn’t decided yet. Anyway, turmoil will prevail in our little hut for quite awhile. Jerilyn dislikes any type of disruption, so this is taking quite a toll on her. I am comfortable with a mess, so I’m not bothered too much. I think that bothers her also. At my age I try to keep frettin’ to a minimum.
