Money Pit

Not really, but it almost seems that way.

Our investment property just got new window blinds through out the house. It is now getting a new water heater. Lovely.

It may have also found a tenant. The plumber loves this house. He really wants to buy it, but is thinking perhaps lease for a year then buy. Of course, this is all dependent on wife!!

If we were to sell, we would make a really nice profit. Even with everything we have done, the amount we have invested is less than market value.

The only thing left is for the electrician to get here to replace the breaker panel and put in ground fault outlets in the bathrooms.

The maid service I hired was terrible. They lost out on my having hired them long term for my house. I hate, absolutely hate, stainless steel sinks. I know they can look really nasty most of the time, but I also know they can look pretty good. When the service left here, the sink looks horrible. The windows I asked to be washed are not clean. I think they ruined the solar film on the windows in the living room. Well - they won't be back.

I think the plumber is about finished. Good. The heat is on, but set at 50 degrees. I am freezing here sitting on a brick hearth. I need to get warm after this next little bundle I drop.

You know what's funny is that when I had a stainless steel sink, I thought it would be wonderful to have a ceramic/cast iron sink. Now I have a ceramic/cast iron sink and it is such a chore to clean, I wish I had a stainless steel again.

I love my stainless steel sink, but it can look grungy at times. I think you have to spend a lot of money to get a really good one. My daughter has one in her mansion and it always looks beautiful, but then cost a ton of money. Glad she can afford it...wish her Momma could.
