Our poor house is still struggling and we’ve extended our stay at the condo close to downtown and the beach. I am so thankful that we can afford to do so, but before all is said and done it will be 3 months there and that might even be pushing it. Our poor house only needs people to work on it. We’ve had such bad luck with hiring people that don’t do the job correctly and/or don’t show up for weeks at a time. Just hired someone new yesterday and are paying double the cost of his competitor because he can get started in September and not October. The outside will be started on next week and the inside by the end of September.
While we’ve had people not showing up Jason has taken on a lot of the burden himself. He spends a few night a week here at the house working late into the night and in the wee hours of the morning. Gage stays with Grandma once a week and that means I get to spent the night in the condo all by myself (I tried staying here one night but the house in its current state made me sick). Such a weird feeling. So weird that I fell prey to having a glass of wine and watching a few teen rom-coms that felt like throwbacks to my favorite 80’s John Hughes movies. I admit that I’ve secretly liked being able to sleep in the next morning before meandering back to my guys 🙂

Sorry to read the house saga continues, that’s just terrible.
I loved The Glass Castle, even though it was so disturbing. I really was annoyed with the mother especially for not protecting those kids. The father (Harrelson did an awesome job) was just a nutcase.
We have the same kind of luck when hiring contractors. I hope this one works out!
I haven’t seen any of those movies.
Don’t know where I’ve been that I missed what has been happening with your house. Sorry that the contractors have been useless. I do hope this new one will stick with the job. Haven’t seen any of the movies.
I’m so sorry the house is still not up to snuff with people not showing up for work, etc. Sending good thoughts your way that this all gets patched up soon!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before: Lovely, funny, diverse teen romance.
The Kissing Booth: Cheesy, silly, throwback teen romance.
The Glass Castle: Beautiful story, not great adaptation.
