I forgot that the appraiser was coming today. He was efficient and nice, even after he nearly got beaned by some shingles thrown down by one of the roofers.

Somewhere in there the water stopped working because they were installing a dishwasher next door. This would have been no big deal except that my water bottle was almost empty. So I dodged the falling shingles and brought in an old 2.5 gallon bottle from the garage and a drinking water bottle from the truck.

The appraiser is done, the water is back and the roofers are at lunch. I just took a break, now it's back to the salt mines.

Keep focused and go forward. You are moving through this day with grace and humor. Yayyyy you! Remember to eat and drink and take a deep breath every now and then.

I just finished my second meal of the day. I seem to take breaks about the same time as the roofers, which is good because it's much nicer when the banging stops. The next break will be for coffee and ice cream.

Pieces of the texture stuff have been falling down from the broken part of the ceiling when the roofers hammer above it. I threw a tarp over the table, opened the sliding door and am working around it. This is not prolonged exposure. I will be fine.

I plan to put the furniture in Shanna's garage because I have the key to it. Rich is coming over this evening to help move everything and put up the tarps.

This is not fun.
