Soap Opera Update
Hi, everyone! Merry Christmas Eve! I know I've been remiss, so here's the edited version of my saga.
Nearly at fifteen months and the only real effect of flagyl pulses is a short temper. For that reason, I am postponing this month's pulse til after the new year. I don't want to be remembered as the Grinch this year.
I've been absent from the board more than I'd like, as I moved into my childhood home on 02 October and it has drained me of time and money since day one. The house has been jacked up two inches in the center, new wiring has been pulled, light fixtures have been hauled to and from the refinishers/platers, the rear brick wall has been demolished and rebuilt and the rear yard (about sixty by two hundred feet) has been cleared of twenty years' growth of grapevine and weed trees and trash. As I type this, two contractors are still here (near midnight) rebuilding my only existing bathroom One cat (feral and untouchable) is loose in the house as this is being done and he howls pitifully when the saw blades whine. (Jim, I'll see your 'before' photos and I'll raise you. I have no kitchen and won't have one until March, if all goes on schedule.)
But know I am not complaining, not even a little bit! Everyone, understand please; this would not have been possible before abx. In August 2005, I was physically drained and debilitated when I climbed the stairs here but once a day. I was facing giving up the dream of restoring my childhood home, a late-Victorian gem. Today, I have been up and down from basement to attic at least twenty times, hauling pipe and lifting lumber and climbing ladders, measuring, this after working a full day at my job. (Be careful what you wish for, children!) More later, but work is going great here and so am I. By the way, my 'real' job is a minimum fifty hours a week, as well. Oh, and no 'wobblies'; I've worn high heels to two Christmas parties without mishap.
Good holidays to all, whatever holidays you may be celebrating. I love this time of year when everyone is just a bit kinder to others. My heart is with all of you, though my time is so limited at the moment. I'll be back soon, Mac K.
