Here am I. We are back.
We have had an adventurous week. We got fumigated for termites.
Last week, I began packing up all of our food, so it wouldn't get poisoned. That took me a while. Now, I am half way through, putting it all back away. This has been a good excuse to finally clean my fridge & cupboards & re-organize all the food. I don't think this current act can count for nesting. I was kinda forced into it. Otherwise, believe me, I would not have taken all my foods out, cleaned & re-organized.
Okay. So, Thursday morning, we had to be out of our house at 8am. We were leaving at 7:45 - Scott with the dogs, heading for the boarding place & Gillian & I heading for my parent's. I was really hoping I didn't forget anything important. Then, I realized I had forgotten my cell phone. I still had time. It wasn't 8 yet. I turned around and got it. Then, I realized (too late) that I forgot something else important. My Tums!!!!!!!!!! Scott had to go buy me more. The left behind container was already poisoned & locked into the house.
We had to be out of our house for 2 nights & 3 days. We spent the first day & night at my parents. Scott & I both seemed to be coming down with a sickness that day, too. Gillian didn't sleep well that night. We were total wrecks in the morning. He & I had planned on going away, to Pacific Grove. But, now he had a fever. We decided to go anyway, cuz it was too late to cancel & get our money back. Even though Gillian had not been a good sleeper, away from her room, thus far, my Mom was a trooper & still said we could leave her there.
Scott & I headed down to P.G. I had intended to take pictures. But, it was raining & we were pretty pathetic. We mostly slept! But, it was a great time to recover a little bit.
We got back into our house Saturday evening. That was nice. It would've felt nicer if it wasn't so freezing cold here, though. PG&E turns the gas off for fumigations, & then won't turn it back on, on the weekend. So, I am waiting for them this morning. Gillian & I are trying to stay alive in a house that is a frigid 52. There are some blue skies. So, I have my blinds open, trying to capture some of the sun's rays.
Oh, and, we also wait for the plumber this morning. Last week, when I ran my washing machine, I got the delightful treat of sewage coming back up into my bathtub & shower. Wow. That was great. Because, scrubbing my bathrooms was another chore that I was overdue on.
It will be nice when they get here & get things fixed. With the cold conditions of the house, we have been wearing a lot of clothes. Being unable to do laundry, we are quite backed up.
It's good to be getting this done before Peyton arrives. I thought I would've been getting more sewing done lately. I guess that will have to wait.
