Hello Tuesday! More heat this week – will it ever end? It’s like we’re having an Endless Summer… I’m so ready for fall. Though I suspect maybe this’ll be the last week for the hot days and we’ll get some respite soon. Of course, I may have just invoked Murphy’s Law with that hope and dream… heh!

So we had the dumpster all filled for emptying last week – only they never showed up to empty it on Thursday as told/anticipated. Turns out they messed up the day they’re supposed to empty it, and it should have been emptied on Tuesday instead of Thursday. We of course weren’t on the schedule for last Tuesday. So it’s getting emptied today, which of course thwarted our plans to fill it up again this past weekend.

Luckily they’ll give us an additional week (we’ll see if they do – I sure hope they do, I know I’m going to need the full 4 weekends of physical labor purging unnecessary stuff out of the house!) At any rate, I didn’t get to do my fall decorating this weekend, so I’m hoping this upcoming weekend will prove to be amenable for purging and decorating…wish me luck!

We connected with a few roofing companies last week – holy moly have roof repairs and replacements skyrocketed in price! Luckily our roof is in good shape so we don’t need to replace it immediately. We do, however, need to get that section repaired where the shingles slid off, or we’ll be in serious trouble when the rain starts.

We’re keeping an eye on the weather (no rain in the next 10 days, so fingers crossed it remains as such since the roofers can’t get here until the end of that timeframe). They did say, though, that if rain is looming before they can come to do the repair, they’ll make sure we stay dry. 

Well, Christmas is only about 15 weeks away! Egads! I’m of course keeping this countdown active, either it will be helpful or annoying – or annoyingly helpful! 

Days until Christmas

  1. Yes, may Bob Barker rest in peace. I remember his predecessor, Bill Cullen.

    If you ever find it, get the book “Coyote vs. Acme” by Ian Frazier. The title essay is hilarious.

  2. Heeheehee! Of course, the cat would leave the stuff and take the box.

    I hope your weather cools soon and the roof holds out until the guys can get to it.

    Thanks for hosting!
