Well, it's been a very busy couple of months since I posted here. This is just a quick post while I have a little time. Will post more when I have more time.
We finally got the house "water disaster" fixed up and the last tradesperson finished up last Monday. I had no hot water in the kitchen for six weeks and no dishwasher for two months. Wah!!! Amazing what we get used to. The good news is that we have a new bathroom, a newly-painted laundry room with new flooring, dd's bedroom has been re-painted and the carpeting replaced. I also got new countertops in my kitchen. It was a very stressful time, but it's done now. Many thanks to OnSide Restoration, who saw us through it all.
The bad news........the reno set us back about $16,000! With no insurance (we DO have insurance, but they don't cover water damage over TIME), and the black mould a possible health risk to everyone, we had no choice but to go ahead and get it done. With DH working a new job, it wasn't possible for him to do it, so we had to just bite the bullet and have it done.
I do have pics of the renos, but my camera is missing in action right now, so will upload when I can find it. I'll try not to be such a poor correspondent. It's just been a whirlwind time of late.
