I'm sure there was that and more!

Looks like the WHH issue is over. It is working well and quietly, I donít hear it at all anymore. I had to turn it down this morning. It was 50% in the dining room.

We continue to eat at the old table while we wait for the repairs to be done on our Amish table. Hopefully, it has arrived back at the shop by now and the craftsmen will be on it next week.

After everything that weíve dealt with over the last week, I think Iíd better wait a bit before doing something else.

I can amuse myself with straightening out the giant mess that is the basement.

It's good that the humidifier is working well. Do you notice any difference in your skin not being as dry or your throat not as dry? Maybe it's too early to tell for that.

It's also good that you saved your old table. The only other table we have is an old card table, if something ever happened to our main table.

It feels better in here, but I canít say my dry skin is better yet.

The only reason we have the old table is we have the giant basement to store stuff.

Giant basements can be useful, but they can also make pack rats out of people. (This is words of wisdom from a pack rat.)

I have a pile of empty boxes about the size of a Volkswagon.

I did try to slice and flatten a bunch of the boxes, ready for the next trip to recycling.

Under the "it's always something" category...

A part of my well & water treatment system is kaput. This tank is fortunately still under warranty, but of course, the labor is not. That will be another couple hundred dollars at least.

Grrrrr

Yesterday the power company's tree service sliced off half of our big maple tree again. It was just starting to look decent after their last butchering. Can't be within 15 feet of the lines, you know.

I told the hubs we should have them take it down completely (they will) and we could put in something else that we like further away from the stupid power lines. I also suggested we try to find out how much it would cost us (big bucks, I am sure) to run that section of the lines underneath so we don't have this issue every couple of years. He prefers to look at the ugly cuts and complain every time he sees it.

How I wish we never bought this house.

On the bright side, my first win of the year. Some oatmeal.

Oatmeal is tasty and good for you, so congrats on the win.

Your house (and furnishings) seem to have gotten very needy lately. Sorry that you will have yet another bill to contend with. I hate it when the power company butchers trees around here. They have been saying for years that they are going to start burying the lines, but it hasn't happened yet.

Tomorrow I will find out how much that will cost. Having a well vs city water is a humongous, expensive pain in the rear. And I know that the septic tank is overdue for a pumping too.

I am glad that we have city water, because it does seem like a well and septic tank would not be something I would want to deal with. I hope the tree cutting bill isn't too big.

Tree butchery is a free service offered by the power company. Fixing my water system is not. It's hard to keep track, no worries.

I did get a little confused there. You seem to have a lot going on, and I guess my feeble brain is not keeping up. I thought you might be checking into getting the tree removed, then replacing it with another not so close to the house. That's why I was referring to the tree bill. I should have elaborated and said tree removal in case that was the route you were going.

I will now say that I hope the water system repair is not too costly.

Like I said, no worries. I cannot keep track myself.

The hubs will do nothing about the tree.

$258. Lucky the pressure tank was still under warranty. Sumbeach.
