Got estimate on minor roof repair...

Friday, July 29, 2011

Insurance estimated $650 for repairs...(loose shingles and some need replacing as they had curled up....

I got an estimate from a roofer on Angie's List for $500 and he seems to be very nice and he can get out next week.

I was getting nervous as my insurance company said I would not be covered if a windstorm or more hail occurred before I got the repair done.

On Saturday I am getting an estimate (not free, but $50) for fixing a floor drain in the basement. About 15 years ago the Roter Rooter people got their machine stuck in the floor drain and in extricating their machine they broke the trap. Apparently the floor has to be jack-hammered around the drain in order to replace the section with the trap in it. I am fearful of the cost but will definitely get more than one estimate on this job. For all these years I have had to pour water down this drain about every 2-4 weeks or the sewer gas comes up.... Hope I am given an estimate that is not too high. I really think this needs to be done. emoticon

breakfast....

Thursday, July 28, 2011

Just as I was more than half done with my oatmeal...something didn't taste right...

So I didn't finish it and started breakfast over with a peanut butter sandwich.

I got worried as I have had food poisoning several times in my life (bad water, spoiled shrimp at a restaurant and spoiled strawberries at home)...so I hope there was nothing wrong with my oatmeal with milk on it but ...anyhow...

Better safe than sorry. emoticon

    I'll bet you will be okay since you stopped eating it. Don't worry.

I love peanut butter sandwiches and milk...Mmm...

    So true. When something tastes odd, it is better to eat something else.

The usual ....

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Work is boring again, spending lots of time sorting and stuffing envelopes with insurance claims. I keep promising myself to bring music to listen to...it would help...

Hubby is busy worrying about his health, though losing 5 lb in a week doesn't seem that worrisome to me...wish I could. Unfortunately, he has tended to stay the same weight for years and this weight loss has him making remarks about disappearing and dying, etc.

For now he has gone back to bed while I get ready for work....

Tomorrow I get the day off for a handyman to do a few projects in the bathroom including a new light fixture so we can see in there again (the old fixture only works on one socket).... emoticon

Eyes a bit blurry this morning...

Sunday, July 24, 2011

Friday's party for my dear sister who died last November was very nice. I watched about 3 hours of the 4 hours of home movies yesterday. They covered our family from 1938 (the year she was born) to 1956 (the year she graduated from high school I had not seen these movies for about 40 years and brought tears to my eyes as some of them I had not seen before. It was a very special gift from my nephew who spent many hours splicing and repairing the disintegrating mess he started with and put them on DVDs for everyone who wanted one. I am the only suviving member of my family of origin and that makes me a bit sad to think they are all gone now. emoticon

    So glad your nephew was able to make the dvd for all who wanted one. What a great way to preserve those memories!!! Although your family may all be gone, you still have your memories of them and now the dvd.

    While you family members might be gone, you still have your memories and no one can take them from you.
