Before and After

I am, once again, sad to see another weekend end.  5 more days until the next one.  I accomplished my goals mainly because I kept them simple:  

1) Finish the annual guardianship report for my nephew and mail it.
2) Clean off the table at my mobile home.
3) Get haircut for foster dog.

I don't have a photo of me mailing the report but I did it.  I do have photographic proof that the other chores were completed.

Shaggy dog before:

Looking good after her bath and haircut although I don't think she liked it much.  I am really lucky to have a friend who is a groomer who is willing to make after-work house calls.

Before, the mountain of dirty stuff haunted my nightmares.

Everything cleaned and sorted (except one box).  I made even more progress than I had expected and I only spent 3 1/4 hours doing it.

It won't take much more to move the rest of the furniture.  I don't think that fridge even works anymore but I will need help to get it in my truck so I can take it to the dump.  I think I am ready to call the handyman now.  The first thing that I want done?  A wide door installed and a ramp so that I don't have to deal with the sliding glass door that takes two hands and a foot to open and 4 rickety stairs.  I love seeing this project develop  It has been in my head for what seems like forever but really has been only 8 years or so.  Maybe some day soon I will have a patio for my patio table and chairs.  I don't know if I will have enough money for a patio this time but eventually, I will get one.

Wow the trailer looks amazing! Good work! We must have been on the same wavelength...I was cleaning off my work bench today.

Thanks, Big Sis. I keep going back to look at the picture to make sure it's real. It has been a long time since it has looked that empty.

Yeah, nice job on the clean-up. It looks pretty livable now. You gonna throw a party and invite us all?

Ha, i love the unshaggy dog story. She looks lovely.

Really good progress with the mobile home. I am suitably impressed!

Daizy said...

Ha, Dave, I think a working bathroom might be necessary before any party plans.

Daizy said...

quiltingdoberman, she is such a sweet dog. I think we kept her from her babies too long. She looks like she thinks we did something to them. Don't worry, mama dog, all squeaking puppies are still there.

Daizy said...

Thanks, Lizzie. Hopefully, better progress photos to come soon.

hey, that dog turned grey. How traumatic was that cut?

Daizy said...

Anonymous, it must have been the wrong shampoo. We should have used the one that washes the grey out.
