Hi, Honey, I'm Hoooooommmmmeeeeeee
« on: November 13, 2008, 11:05:27 pm »
Didja miss me?   :neener

Ten days of "exile" up at the ranch, with Archerandshooter bunking in with our two youngest sons (which I think automatically nominates him for sainthood!) and we are, sort of, back in our house.  I say "sort of" because all the containment barriers are still up, and we have to go through an airlock to get from our dining room into the back part of the house.

It looks like a Michael Crichton movie set.

However, Blackmon Mooring has done a phenomenal job of removing sheetrock NEATLY so that the renovators will be able to use 4 X 8 sheets without having to custom fit them to "creative" cutting jobs.  They had the devil's own time getting the hardwood floor up; it seems that the glue that is used makes superglue look like water and paste, and it was the removal of that which caused a three day delay in finishing up the job.  As is, they still didn't get it all quite up, so I have what looks like a wooden quilt on the floor in the back part of the house.  That'll get sanded up when the flooring people come and do their thing (eventually).

I have some hope of making my personal deadline of Christmas for everything to get done.  Tomorrow we have contractors coming to talk about sheetrock and painting....once that's done this place will look like a home again instead of the set for "The Andromeda Strain"

At any rate, I'm back and I want to thank all of you for how remarkably well, and civilly, this forum has continued along.  You all are terrific!!

    Welcome back! We kept the riff-raff  out while you were at the ranch.

    I've dealt with the mold remediation before. Luckily, I had ceramic tile floors at the time, so all we had to deal with was the drywall and the kitchen. I was without walls on my first floor for about a month, plastic barriers and all, and without a kitchen for about 9 months ( :cuss lazy contractors in FL). I feel your pain. Hope it gets done quicker than mine.

    Yeah,
    You left me here all alone with a bunch of ugly guys to look at in the Control/ Staff room and to romp around the forum doing "offisel mod-err-ating bidness" .

    Hey, if hanging out with  two younger sons gets one sainthood, then I ought to be a shoe-in for Dictator , putting up with...how many staff we got anyway?

    <serious sincere  mode>

    Yes you were missed , and I am glad you are back. I am sending best to you and hubby in getting the house back in order.

    <whine , pitiful . beg, mode>

    WHAT!? FISH TACOS?!
    [Alone's excited friend blows his innocent cover] I want some fish tacos! I could use a little bit of Texas cuisine here in Little Rock!

    *sigh*

    Jan,
    See what I have been putting up with?

    Like I said, I have earned being Dictator.
    Dictators don't have to share Fish Tacos, or the salsa, cheese dip, chips or Dr. Pepper.
    [Jan, you are going to do the salsa, cheese dip , chips and remembered  I like Dr. Pepper - right?]
    *whine, beg, plead*

    alooone!

    Whut! Don't you two have something better to do?  Go check on the forums I am supposed to mod. I am being considered for Dictator and a little busy at the moment.
    'sides, Jan is MY Co-Moderator, and I get first dibbs on missing her and doing the whining, begging and pleading bit.

    Mmmmmm.  Fish tacos........

    I keep experimenting to try and get the Jalapeno Crema just right and keep falling short somehow.  Time to Google for recipes....

    I couldn't wait for the fish tacos. I gotta be on base in an hour, so I settled for a can of tuna and some Ramen. Maybe next week.

    That's ok.  Turns out that Middle Son and his lady friend are taking us out to dinner for a belated birthday celebration.  Personally, I have a mental bet with myself that there's also An Announcement coming, if not tonight, then soon.  For one thing, they're VERY chummy.  For another, SHE called me up at the ranch yesterday to say happy belated birthday and we're taking you out to dinner and etc etc.  Sounds like Possible Potential Daughter In Law behavior to me. 

    We shall see.  I'd become an instant grandma, as she has two little kiddos.  That could be fun.  Children to spoil and hand back to my son.... :biggun :biggun :biggun

    You jerks are making me hungry.  Do you have any idea how hard it is to find good fish tacos around here?!

    Now I'll be driving around all night like a junkie looking for a fix.
