Our downstairs area is still torn up, but things are looking up. While in PR, we had Manual Labor Mike put in two curbs to block future overflowing drains from flooding the basement. The one we had MLM do previously, held tight during the flood. The two curbs we added were in the entryway to the boiler room and in the downstairs shower. There was already a smaller curb in the shower as you would expect, but now it's a super structure!
The rest of the replacement work starts today, but in earnest tomorrow. The drywaller is coming in to begin replacing the drywall and then the carpet, which has already been ordered, will be installed. Hopefully the drywall can be finished by early next week and the carpet laid by the end of the week. We'll see.
Last night we had dinner with a very pregnant friend, Carol and her husband John, with whom I played softball up to last year. Carol is ready to pop at any minute....ANY minute. Next Monday they go in and take the little fellar out if he doesn't come out naturally by then. Unfortunately, at the end of the evening, LL got really sick. We headed home quickly and she was in bed within minutes. She's doing a little better today, which is good news.
