Default my update

Sorry I haven't been very active here on SM lately. Things are moving forward and backward here at the same time....

Our renovations are moving along very quickly. The drywall is in and the painter will be here tomorrow! The hardwood flooring will be delivered on Tuesday, the bathroom tile is ready to be picked up at the store and I found flooring for Stan's man-cave in Lowes and it was in stock, so we brought it home. I've ordered appliances, but the kitchen cabinets are holding us back. The store I was going to get them from won't have them for up to 6 weeks. My builder is going to try to get them for me quicker.

I absolutely love the tiles I got for the bathroom, and today I ordered this vanity....oh my gosh...I'm gonna have such a pretty home!!

Could use suggestions on what type of mirror to get though.

Now for the bad news:

My sister has a disabling disease (nuero sarcoidosis) and has good days and bad days. Lately she's been falling asleep several times a day - which isn't too out of the ordinary for her, but according to my dad, it's been worse than usual. She did my wash for me the other day and they brought it back to me last night on their way to the er - so she could get checked out. They decided to admit her and this morning she stopped breathing and is now on a ventilator and has a feeding tube.

No one can tell us anything...because they just don't know if she'll start breathing on her own or not.

My poor dad is devistated and is just lost.....first his house and now his daughter. Oh, and this summer my dad was driving home and pulled along side a guy on a bike sitting in the center of the road, evidently my dad startled this guy and he got angry and started yelling at my him. My dad couldn't believe the man was so mad and laughed at him, telling him he had road rage. Well the guy pressed charges and my dad had to go to court and pay a fine. He didn't hit the guy, just startled him, but the guy lied in court and my poor dad is too laid back to the judge is making him retake the driving test. He can't study under these circumstances so he's sure he'll lose his liscense also. The public adjuster isn't taking on his house, so I will be dealing with the insurance company. His house is 100 years old and the ins. co. is sending a structural engineer out to check it before they offer any $. Who knows when that'll happen, we can't even get in touch with the adjuster So, tomorrow morning I'm meeting with the builder, my dad and Randy (the broker in my office, and Stan's son). Maybe we can figure out what we can do.

Ok, sorry for rambling on, and I hope I made sense - it's 3 in the morning and I can't sleep.

Thanks for listening to my problems

Oh Pat... I so sorry about your sister's situation and your Dad's problems as well. You certainly have a plateful, dear lady!

On the positive note happy your home is getting back to 'rights' and things are falling into place on that 'front'.

I'm so sorry I have not been able to contribute to your 'cause! We are using every extra penny we have helping a family who are in dire financial straits due to health isues and job loss... and have a couple of kids.very sad situation for sure.

Will be praying things improve for your sister and for your dad as well!
