Memorial Day

Well, this day was surprisingly full. I slept in the shed, had a little fire, and then did lots and lots of things. I went to work for a little while* and then came back to tackle the disaster in the bathroom that I avoided last night. (I was too tired to think clearly after mopping up all the water on the floor.) I think I know what the problem is: the diverter in the upstairs tub is causing a leak. I figured that out by dragging a table into the bathroom, cutting a bigger hole in the ceiling, re-creating the problem upstairs by pulling the diverter up and making a big ol’ mess.

I have a written explanation for the guy I’m going to ask to fix it.

After that, I did some cooking and cleaning, a little t.v.-watching, a little nap, then some more cleaning. It doesn’t actually look like I did anything, but I am pleased that I was in motion for much of the day. After I cleaned up the downstairs bathroom (moved the table back, vacuumed up all the drywall dust), I realized I never released the diverter upstairs….. and there’s water on the floor. *sigh*

Anyway, tomorrow (or ‘today’, when you read this) is the first day of the summer program. Prayers for a smooth start would be great.

Happy Tuesday!

* I forgot to mention that I backed into the trash can at the end of the driveway and scratched the car. Awesome.

Weekend Update

I don’t know if I’ll get photos put up, but words have to be better than nothing, right? Friday was a workday at school. We had a special brunch for my friend Kate, who extended her time with us for another week and will be done the at the end of next. I got some […]

Back Home

I’m back in Nebraska. I didn’t post much from Colorado because….well, I just didn’t. Sorry. It was so good to spend time with family. After Mom’s fall, they found out she had an intestinal infection but by the time I got there, the medicine had helped immensely. I got to witness the incredible love and […]

The short and winding road

The short and winding road

It’s been good being here in Colorado. I am glad to just be around. Keep praying for Mom – she is quite tired. Here’s an interesting thing. To get to Eckert from I-70, you can either drive to Grand Junction to Delta, then up to Eckert. The highway (50) skirts around the base of Grand […]

In Colorado

In Colorado

I made it to Eckert yesterday. I started driving Friday night, camped in the car at a campground in Gothenburg, Nebraska, then was up-and-at-em early in the morning. I don’t believe I’ve driven this route myself since my thirties, and it wasn’t too bad. There were many stops, either for coffee, restroom breaks or just […]

Lilacs

It’s the ‘last week’ of preschool, and I’m a bit flustered with the amount of stuff to get done. I need to gather up all the things of the children who are leaving for summer and do some fun-ish things to commemorate the end of everyone’s time together. I’m also headed out to Colorado to […]
