When last we left Bob the Builder, he had called in Susan the Savior to finish his work--or the work he didn't do. Of course, we left Findlay before the work was all done. Bill, who lives with us, told us that she had painted the hall woodwork and was coming back to do the computer room ceiling. Bob the Builder hadn't told her about painting the trim in my bedroom. So, she emailed us today. He had told her only to paint the windows, not the 3 doors. Now why, I ask you, would I want just the windows and not the doors??? So, she said she would give us a quote, would go out and buy more paint since Bob the Builder's son didn't buy enough and then she would do the work. I wish to heck that we had found her originally! We have lots more work to do next summer but unfortunately she is being transferred by Marathon Oil to Houston. Drat.
This is the first time that we have come south this early. Usually we don't come until mid October but due to us being Florida residents now and Ohio law says that they can charge us full state tax if we are there over 3 months, we came down earlier this year. And believe me, it is HOT--and MUGGY! As I revealed on this blog a while back, due to my restless leg syndrome and sometime insomnia and Mr. Snowbird's snoring, we sleep in separate rooms. When we are down here, that means that I sleep in the Florida room. Usually it isn't too bad and sometimes during the winter it gets downright cold. Unfortunately, the Florida room is not heated or air conditioned. So, since we got back down here, I have been sleeping in a sauna! And the overhead fan hasn't worked since we had the Florida room remodeled. (I think Bob the Builder's cousin did the work here!) So, I have a tower fan which is aimed right at my futon. It helps a little but I tend to wake up dripping from perspiration from time to time. I can't wait until it starts to cool off a bit. Three or four weeks I am told.
BTW, I did pick up a little something, put it in a cage and transport it today. :-)
