The Sweet Taste Of Success!
The siding guys are finally making some headway. They have finished the back and sides of the house and are almost done building a roof over the front door. The landscaper put in the trees and bushes in the center island and on both sides of the driveway. What a difference! I am really starting to get excited! Many neighbors have stopped by to tell us how great it looks! Even passing joggers in the park yell compliments to us if we're standing outside! We ran into a little trouble with the attic closet though. Once again I had to run back to Home Depot many times to get just the right parts for the ClosetMaid shelving system. Then... after we put the shelves up, I discovered that they weren't high enough. All of Ray's suit jackets touched the floor. I hated to take the shelves down and start over, but the clothes would get dusty and wrinkled if I didn't. The back shelf couldn't go any higher, but the two sides could. THANK GOD the walls were high enough so that the suits didn't touch the floor when hanging from the rod. Also good that Ray isn't any taller than he is! Joe had to replaster and touch up the paint from the marks of the previous holes, but when he finished it looked as though they were never there. I am raring to go now that I've had the sweet taste of success! Even if it was just a morsel.
