The gods-be-damned dining room ceiling fell down!!! Now we have to have the whole thing replaced, and the walls painted as well (the plaster damaged the walls as it fell).


We're not going to be able to fix the back yard. We can't afford to have the house painted (exterior). We can't get the lower bathroom done (so we'll have to shut the water off again this winter). We can't get the front hall wall fixed. We can't repair the cement steps next to the garage. We can't do anything with the front yard (no $$ and no energy at the moment). The back door is beginning to not work well. The ceiling in the upstairs bathroom isn't looking all that good....and we have mice. Oh, and the basement is a storage disaster.

Boy, do we hear you. Over here, Charming Bungalow seriously needs a new roof, and probably some new windows would be a good idea too. There are tiles falling off the downstairs bathroom wall, and the upstairs bathroom...well, that's sort of our indicator that we need a new roof, as the ceiling is looking a bit water-stainy.

Oh, yikes! What caused the ceiling to fall?!

When it rains it pours, as they say...

anithe - we both need to win the lottery, babe.

steve - age and intense vibration...remember our city worked on the water mains out front, complete with pneumatic drills. We have other places - walls mostly - that show cracks now.
