It’s been crazy busy on my end. The first phase of the renovation is finished and now we’re waiting for the counters to be delivered so the kitchen work can complete. We have about half a counter right at the moment but hey at least its something. It’s also nice to see a break in the dust generation. Everything was getting this fine layer of dust that was overwhelming. (We had plastic sheeting up on the doors but still it managed to sneak through.) One evening I smelled something burning and couldn’t figure out where it was coming from, wonderful feeling that. Finally we narrowed it down to the TV. The dust must have gotten inside and was burning off of some component within. Very nice.

Also, my division here at work is getting re-orged. This has a lot of potential. It means that soon we’ll be under new management and I’m excited about the possibilities. I think it’s going to allow my workgroup to get involved in a lot more projects. I’m going to keep in a job hunting scan just to be aware of opportunities that might come up but a bit of the stress has been lifted.

Also also, my office is physically moving next month so I’m starting the whole purge cycle. It’s frightening how quickly the paper can pile up when you are in one desk for a while.

So that’s what’s been going down. Hope everyone is in a more peaceful place. Heh.

Oh my oh my, how lives can parallel
sometimes. Geoff and I have been talking about redoing our kitchen for a while now. Will we know it needs to be redone, the celling has leaks (towels on the floor when it rains) and has stains all over them (we've finally contacted a roofing company to reroof the whole place (built in 1812) but our other problem is that it's a galley kitchen, big enough for about 1 and 1/2 people when cooking.

Also I'm going to be moving my office in the coming about a collection of junk over the past 6 years (ugh....doesn't bear thinking about.....just get to it).

Also our T.V. burned out (thanks cats and all your cat gack).

I'm happy for you that there is reorganization in your office so that staying there is also an option.

How is E getting on?

Oh yeah, I hate living in a construction zone. Thankfully we got so much done here before we moved in but it looks like in the fall we will probalby be gutting the kitchen and knocking out walls to expand it all. NOT looking forward to the mess but definitely to the finished product.

Ok my office isn't moving, at least I don't think so, but I'm tired of workers at our house at 8am every morning. I'm glad it isn't the kitchen but I'm tired of dust, paint fumes and trying to keep a toddler from being underfoot. Heck I don't always keep myself from being underfoot.

I'm not sure selling is worth all of it. LOL
