It has been a busy couple of days. Yesterday I made another trip to the dump with my little pick-up.
I must be crazy.... I love going to the dump.
As hard as the work is, it is also freeing. I drive away from the garbage transfer station... one step closer to my dreams.
Each day another step.
Each day one step closer.
Thursday I paid a handyman to help me take apart the sliding glass door to the patio. We cleaned it and put it back together again and it slides like a greased pig. It has been important for me to recognize that sometimes I need help and find a way to just get it done. Two hours with a handyman is a lot less expensive than a new slider door with installation.
Friday I worked on the bathroom. I re-stained a cabinet above the toilet. Spilled a can of stain on me and the bathtub. Not to worry, the bathtub and I cleaned up with paint thinner and a lot of Dawn soap. I swear Dawn Soap works miracles. It should be in every RV emergency kit along with duct tape and WD 40.
In honesty I should admit I fell off the counter in the bathroom. I know I shouldn't be standing on the counter. For heavens sake I have enough trouble standing on solid land. But I did manage to stain the wood next to the ceiling before my tumble. I'm a bit sore but fortunately I wasn't badly hurt.....this time. I must be more careful, as I certainly don't need any more broken bones.
Today I was fortunate to have some help. My son-in-law and his friend came with a big pick-up and we loaded yard waste and old yard toys and off to the dump they went. An old work bench from down stairs, a broken chest of drawers and much more that I had piled up.
Gone, Gone, Gone!
My handyman was back this afternoon with a solid wood replacement front door. He picked it up at Habitat for Humanity for $15. Two hours later and it's in place to welcome a new owner.
I'm pooped and I'm done for the day. I hope I have the energy to eat!!!
