In any case, we should start the remodel/rennovation last week. Yippee!!! I will be able to pick out fixtures and tiles from pictures online and from samples Dave brings home. I trust Dave with the things that cannot be sampled (e.g., toilets). And on Saturday, a huge posse of volunteers are coming over from our church to help us demolish the deck; we took on that project to save a couple of thousand dollars, but with me laid up at the new house, I'm not able to do as much as I thought (i.e, nada). Therefore, our church has asked for volunteers to help us, and they got a really big response.
I don't talk much about religion on here or our religious beliefs. It's a lot like telling strangers your weight. People are going to make judgments which may be quite out of touch from your own reality. So, I'll just say that we joined a new church in January and love it and are stunned by the outreach they've given to us since I entered the hospital. (Conor loves this church, too, which makes a big difference)
So, they are coming over on Saturday and I think that means, we're actually starting the remodel. Finally.
We are very, very excited.
