The contractors continue.  To some extent they’re wrapping up; in other was they’re just getting started.

  • The current contractors were here almost every day this week.  I also met with two new contractors for other potential projects (see next bullet).  They’re not done, but I did manage to take the latest grocery picture showing the new mudroom floor and wall.  Here’s a before and after in the same spot.



  • We are contemplating moving.  So, we had a couple of house visits, but nothing that seemed worth pursuing.  I was surprised anything new appeared on the market this time of year.
  • I had a Dr appt.
  • The older boys went for their ski fitting.  They’ll be taking lessons through the rec dept this winter.
  • We attended three birthday parties.
  • I got a significant amount of stuff cleaned out – both trash and recycling – of the garage.  I’m hoping to maintain momentum on the clean-out process.
  • I finally parted with the pile I’d set aside in the basement to part with.  Specifically we sold the saw and drill press; I gave away the smaller stuff.
