Good luck on that...especially the dishwasher. I could NOT live without mine for sure.

Good luck to you with all that. I once lived through a complete house refurbishment. It was pretty close to hell on Earth! :-)

Let me know if you figure out how to deal with the neighbors cats! Our neighbor's cats pee in our garage. I could shut the door, but I have 7 kids who don't leave it shut, lol. Bad combo.

Wow, you have a lot of work ahead of you. I hope everything goes well!

Geriatric Nursing said...

That is an impressively ambitious list! I don't know how to keep cats away but to keep loose dogs from making unwelcome deposits in our yard I would buy the biggest container of ground cayenne pepper and sprinkle it around the most likely places and it stopped the dog dirt deposits. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you have a great weekend.

Well, I'm not playing but I've been thinking about you and tho't I'd say hello. I've been writing so much and am so happy that I am I had to stop visiting and get my book going. So glad I did 'cause I've really gotten a lot accomplished. Anyhoo, I have a question: do you not have central air now? oh dear. Also, aren't you the one who wanted some books to read a while ago? I found this one; it sounds gr8: Kommandant’s Girl

That's all. Have a fabo weekend, my friend. *huggies*
