[The river is |thoughtful hopeful]

Some handymen are retiling the kitchen floor in the house on the land. They just called to tell me that when they pulled up the old tile, the wood underneath was all damp and rotted. They are going to pull it all out and replace it with fresh wood. I told them that after they take the rotted wood out, they need to find the source of the water that is causing the rot so I can get it fixed.

I'm hoping that the rot they found is the source of the musty smell that bothers me in that house and that when they get it fixed, the house won't smell bad to me anymore.

That would be so great.

Good luck on the floor...but also take a look at this, from the NYT:

I love the ceiling of recycled picture frame samples!

I saw that. I fear that ceiling might be a bit much when I had a migraine.

I'm tempted to try and hire that guy to build me a house out at the land. But he only does low-income housing.

I wouldn't want that ceiling in the bedroom, for sure. Same reaction. But when I didn't have a migraine...it would be fun.

I dunno, C-, you're a single mom. You've got a trailer there now, right? He thinks trailers are awful and unsafe and so on. You could at least ask.
