The cement truck is scheduled to come tomorrow. Please pray for clear skies so we can finally pour our kitchen floor!
When we made the appointment last week there wasn't a cloud in the forecast. Now we're looking at a 70% chance of rain and the potential for a stuck truck and a postponement. I split the blame 50/50 between the completely inept local meteorologists and our mudhole of a yard. So, though it's making everything lovely and green, I'm anti-rain this week.
In other news, our carpenter (finally) called us back and said he can only work weekends. With the crummy economy, he had to take work under a larger firm because he wasn't getting enough work through his personal business. But, the good news is that he still wants to work for us -- and that is a huge relief. We love him and his work, despite the fact that he shows a lot of crack 100% of the time. He's gotten us this far with all the structural work we've had to do, and we'd love for him to help us get the rest of the way.
