Text from husband:
"Day began with Clover sheet rocked into hole in kitchen ceiling. (The 9yo) saw it and was understandably FREAKED THE FUCK OUT. Good thing we stopped there before going to horse camp. Otherwise the cat would have been taped and spackled too."
Yes, we have been living amid chaos this summer. Someday, all of the work will be done. Someday.
Happily, both cats are accounted for and all holes in walls and ceilings have been closed up.
But I will be happy when there aren't construction workers trekking through the house before I've had that all important first cup of coffee, and when I can start putting the garden to rights again.
