Three Weeks

That's how long it will be before my little family can go home. We need a new boiler, water heater, washer/ dryer, refrigerator, dishwasher and stove. Problem is, we also need new floors and walls, and apparently we need to dry out and clean up the mess that is our crawl space. For one thing, right now, when we turn the electricity on, it seems to catch fire.

They tell me that it's a real disadvantage to have your house catch fire on a regular basis. Also, it appears before they can put in new walls and floors they have to remove the old ones. And they tell me that it's tough to live in a house without walls or floors. Also, the stairs, which we frequently use to go from one floor to another, need replacing.

Now I'm a reasonable guy. Why can't they take off this piece of the floor, or that wall and not this one? Can't we just replace this piece of floor we need to walk on now and save the rest for later?

Apparently not.

I gotta say, all in all, I did not much enjoy my date with Sandy.
