You may not be able to see me, but I am dancing happily around the room! The contractors are done! Well, for now. There are a couple of things that need to wait for warmer weather, and they should be short, (maybe two days) jobs. Two windows need to be replaced and a giant mound of topsoil needs to be spread and seeded. But my-oh-my this is heaven! No 7AM car shuffles! No hammering, sawing, or drilling! I realize now how much I value my privacy. It's so wonderful to have my house back again.
