UPDATE: As you can see we got very little accomplished. Things were just too chaotic, what with him on the phone with the office MOST of the day trying to decide if he was going to be sent here, or there, or there, or NOW, or tomorrow, or next week! It ruined everything! One minute he needed to be packed ASAP, the next minute someone else offered to fill in for him. I tell ya that company relies on him too doggone much. They need to just clone him already.
Besides that it rained ALL day.
Status: All the pipes are bought but none installed. Still no running water.
Chris leaves out tomorrow and we are going with him. I've hired someone to stay here at the house while we're gone to keep an eye on things, and make sure the animals are fed, and watered- water they are bringing in jugs! LOL
I can't take another week of this and the company was kind enough to allow us to accompany him and stay at the motel. Thank goodness.
I'll have Caleb's laptop with me so I will still be accessible. And, I'll be CLEAN, clean, clean, I tell ya.
I will be so happy to get back home and get those lines dug, pipes installed, and have this bad beginning of 2009 behind us.
I'm typing this to do list mainly to help myself remember. We've got a very busy day ahead of ourselves. Feel free to read it if you're really that bored. lol
