So much going on

Sweetie,
I don't even know where to begin. I thought getting the foundation and brick work done would be a good thing and one you were working on when you passed. Ever since, it's been a domino effect. I'm so tired of people in and out of our house!
The fireplace had to be torn down because it buckled. For a month, we sat with a hole in the wall covered with plastic. Once that was torn down, the floor joists sank in the same room and I had to have another company come for that. Once the floor was raised, the back door no longer closed. We had to order a door and after a week of not being able to close it, it was replaced yesterday.
The new fireplace was built this past weekend but we are still waiting on the hearth. Once that comes in, another company will come in to do the drywall and mantle. I figured I was almost in the clear and then yesterday the electric started "acting up". Dad had Wiz come look yesterday and he's hoping it's just a faulty breaker. If not, I'm going to have call one of the electricians you worked with to figure it out and fix it. Wiz is just too weak to do much. He has been receiving monthly transfusions but to no avail - the leukemia has returned.
The truck has been getting repairs and ready for the winter. I hate the thought of driving in the winter.
Meghan just got out of the hospital today. It's been a long week for her. Dan & I brought her to ER last Sunday and, of course, admitted right away. Her prognosis is still grim. While she was in the hospital this week, she started her period and she was excited about "the event" but at the same time - freaked out! You should have heard her hon, the first thing she said to me was that the doctor asked her if she'd had sex before .. she was mortified .. lol. She told the doc that she was only 12 and that's a stupid question .. lol. She talks about you all the time sweetie and knows you are always with her. She says that Uncle Rob is her angel now .. please keep watch over her.
I love you always sweetie and will miss you forever.

Pam, keep persevering. Keep widening and deepening your skill in getting things done. You can do this. It\'s not fun, but your gaining experience for later years.

Hey girl - It really has been one thing after another with the house. I\'m sorry that you have had to go thru all of that. I know how tough it is to make those decisions and to face those issues without your partner. I\'m with ya, girlfriend - and sending you a hug for a peaceful weekend.

Pam,

You\'ve been buried with repairs, girl. My heart goes out to you. It\'s no picnic to have to deal with all the chaos that goes along with house repairs, but put that on top of everything else in your life---YIKE!!!! It sounds as though you have grown a tough outer shell, so hang on for just a while longer. Soon all the sub-contractors will be out of your house and you can enjoy that fireplace! TJ

Pam,

Wow, sounds like around here.Fireplace (aka wood stove) is still standing though. I have so many repairs to make before I can think about selling our home & move into Mom\'s. I will swap my wagon for the truck tomorrow. It is at the mechanic\'s. Wagon is 16 years old and the truck is 13. Sheet rock is bad in both places. With Dick and Mom needing so much care the last couple of years things just really gotten bad. His shop is full of tools. Some I dont even know what they are. The garage is full. Between Moms things and ours Im going crazy. I even have my mother in laws & father-in-laws things here. Plus Dicks step sisters things. Hang in there. We will get through. Alwaysdix

Pam, Geez a steady flow through your house. You must be so sick of just arranging it all, calling and dealing with contractors. Not my favorte things. It\'s very hard getting all these things accomplished without our Rob\'s. You can be proud of yourself though, we have to pat ourselves now. Hug, Donna

Pam...you have done a good job getting all the construction done on your house. It is not easy to make those decisions alone. Good for you! You will be relieved when it is all done and the best part is that you will know that your house is now safe and secure. Rob would be proud of what you have done.
Hugs, Nancy
