It was also my visit with Dr Poison. Things there are going well - even if the Ca27.29 (the breast cancer marker in the blood) has risen to 31. As long as it is below 38, but I was questioned about new pains, energy level and the like. My blood pressure was great, and the nagging blood sugar was low. I think I may have been effected by Lipitor if you want to know the truth - but proving it. Don't think that will happen.
We completed week one of the re-do. It hasn't been easy. I have what most people would envy. A lot, lot, lot of storage in my bathrooms. Well - that means when it has to come out - it just kind of explodes all over the house. The dust it about an inch thick now, and will only get worse.
The rats that G has been hearing in the attic weren't his imagination. Last week, I heard a noise in the bathroom. It was down to the studs, and the plumbers had opened a small hole in the ceiling. I opened the door, and in the roughed in shampoo holder spot was ... a rat. Not a mouse, a big rat. I am glad the door was closed, and I think I scared it more than it scared me, and that caused it to retreat into the attic, I was quiet about my discovery, and they closed in the walls that day. I called the vermin people on Thursday, and they will be here this week to set out traps again. I really thought we had them under control, but the danged squirrels have chewed new holes that the rats have taken full advantage of. Darn - so I guess we keep out contract with them to do yearly inspections and get rid of the things.
So here are pictures from last week:
|All my hard working with the wall paper (15 years ago) is gone - it is all down. The mirror is off the wall - leaning against the dresser, and the horrid formica (black textured stuff) is gone.|
|This is the roughed in shower stall. That will be the bench. This must have been post rat because we still don't have dry wall in this picture.|
|This is the alcove for the ADA toilet that was already in place and will be put back. Looking at this makes me wonder if we will EVER be put together again.|
