Some progress

We have been working on the house a lot. We are finally getting to the point where we paint. We are touching up the current colors. We still haven’t moved much out, but we are packing books up in bins and will be moving them out of sight. We’ve had help on the yard but still need to do more work there. And, if we can pull together the earnest money, it looks like we can make a deal on the place we want to buy. We have several things up for sale. It’s a lot of work but fortunately we have both been feeling better. I did some painting under the sink last weekend and think I am ready to tackle some walls.

Looks like we will need to have Slobberpuss put down. I thought he had a tumor. One broke open on his side and he’s lost a lot of weight. He managed to get an abscess on his face and I thought he might lose one eye. It finally started draining, but really he doesn’t have much time left. He’s one of those cats that never use a cat box, so it’s just getting worse.

We’ve really had bad weather this summer. It looks like October out there today. I know it’s going to rain a lot on the coast and I will need to deal with this. And I know it will clear up as soon as the days start to get shorter. That’s just the way it goes around here. Feels good to finally be making some changes.
