My nephew and I loaded up the car with groceries and dogs last Thursday. My kitchen area is still in total disarray and I didn't even dig out the microwave until Monday. The first day of school went off without a hitch except that he was signed up for girl choir so his schedule had to be changed around. I took the day off and tried to put up some shade cloth but it was too hot to be working outside so I ended up putting together the table and stools. I hadn't heard back from the company that makes the table so I decided to keep it even though it is damaged because we really needed a table. I finally heard from them yesterday and they suggested that I take it back to Home Depot because the replacement part was not in inventory. I said I would wait 6-8 weeks because I did not want to take it apart after all my hard work. I wonder if the replacement part will ever show up.

This is my little dish washing corner. Someday that countertop will be cut and secured. Until then, I am drying my dishes on a wire shelf over a trash can. I still have running water in this sink. The water tank is getting low so I got out my extension cords and found out they aren't long enough to reach all the way to the pool. My engineer co-worker offered to help me install an outlet by the pool since there is an electrical panel there already. In the meantime, I bought a 100' extension cord. It was raining tonight so I didn't try it out.
And this is my sad, dark little room. The stuff has been shoved under and on top of the counter so that my 2 mattresses can lie side by side. It is much better than just a twin size. The dogs are bed hogs. Someday I will build a bed frame so that I can have storage under this bed. The dark walls need to go too. It is so dark in here.
That's where we are so far. So many half done projects. I'll just keep plugging along a little bit at a time.
