not your usual rental property 2
the rental house saga continues and i think it will for at least a month longer. the damage was more significant than the contractors first thought. the house is still drying out and they can’t fix the plumbing and turn the water on without installing the water heater or they risk another pipe bursting in the cold weather (please no). anyway, i’ll spare the blogosphere from all the details. being a lover of pictures i’ve been trying to document this crazy adventure:
a lot going on right now. hoping to find a new car and a temporary place to live (with the dogs) soon. curious to see what works out. i am reminded to be thankful for health, a new job, great family and friends and a fiance who continues to be incredibly helpful and supportive. not having running water while camping is no biggie; in fact, it’s expected. being in a house without a use-able toilet, shower or sink makes me realize how much i take running water for granted and i can’t help but think of the millions of people in the world who do not have access to clean water, let alone running water. i have it pretty good, really. don’t get me wrong, i’ve been frustrated and done my share of venting. staying positive lasted for about 12 hours yesterday and then i became quite cranky and overwhelmed by it all. glad Someone gives us new mercies every morning.
