Paint n’ Sell

17 Jan

A* and I have been doing a BUNCH of work..too bad none of it has been taking place at our homestead…instead it has been happening at my Ma’s place in preparation of her selling her townhouse and moving into a condo.


..truthfully some of the work has been happening at our place…but it is mostly putting our own stuff (which was stored in my mothers basement) into our attic…the attic is getting jammed. The work IS almost done now which is nice because I need to either rest or to start doing some work of my own!..still need to put in the storm door which A*’s parents graciously bought us for is going to be really nice to be able to see the dogs when they are waiting at the front door…as opposed to them scratching at the door when they want in!

    There’s nothing like helping someone else with their work to either make you a) feel really bad about the state of your own place, or b) the exact opposite. LOL. Not obvious, helping parents downsize.

    Hope your attic’s not too stuffed with obsolete GI Joes from your childhood…

    Ah, the old dogs n’ doors scenario. Cooper jiggles the door handle when he wants in. He’s very discreet like that LOL.

    Good luck getting the storm door installed, and hope you’re not inundated with snow. We have a really cold week ahead of us (-20 and colder). I don’t know which is more evil – a cold snap or tons of snow?

    Take it easy – hope your mom gets her townhouse sold without too much hassle!

    hey buddy!

    hope you get the work done on your mom’s soon so you can get back to your own home. that storm door shouldn’t give you too much trouble, it will be worth it. I just replaced the basement door here and it was less trouble than i thought.

    sounds like you let them out unattended at times – ever though of getting a doggie door? we didn’t have a cat door here for 7 months – just about drowned ourselves in the river.. scratch, meow, scratch, meow… always when we are in bed.. and that was with 2 cats, the new little one is in and out x 1000…. unattended or nothing!!

    cheers, hope you guys are having a great 2013 so far!
