Oh my. You may recall earlier in the week I wrote about how we planned to finish out the renovation of the Travis 1 house, so that my sister could move into it. Tomorrow. To give you a hint of how it’s been going, I’ll just share that my blood pressure is usually 106 over something low, and Thursday it was 130. Sure, that’s not the danger zone, but that’s not ME!
What isn’t up, is a better question. Don’t panic, though. At least I had a cute puppy to help me work yesterday, and today there ARE people working on the house. But.
We’d found this nice dude to be our contractor on the project. He was all set to work with us, and we even had a plan to help him out with other parts of his work. He had one job to finish before starting on our house, but reassured us he’d have plenty of time. Then he got injured. You can’t really blame a guy for that.
By Thursday, we realized that dude was not going to do the job. Thankfully, our office manager, Mandi, has lots and lots of local contacts and was able to find really nice folks to step in and help out. Now we just needed the things to install.
So, Lee and I spent half the day yesterday (Friday) buying out the Home Depot in Bryan. We got all the stuff to the house (check out those photos), and they got to work. Of course, that wasn’t all simple.
