Joe has been hard at work on home renovations. He has the plans from the architect, and has given them to 3 different contractors. Now, we just wait for bids and then things begin. In theory. Of course, one of the contractors we gave them to never actually showed up at the meeting he was supposed to have at our house today. So I guess that narrows down the field. It’s too bad, too. It was a Tibetan-owned contractor, and with the Dalai Lama coming to town next week, it would have been good karma. As a matter of fact, that’s the name of the comapny — “Good Karma.” Oh well. I’ll have to try to get to Nirvana some other way.
At any rate, now the fun part begins, where we get to go around and pick out appliances and gadgets. That’s totally fun — until someone has to actually write the check. But, until that reality check, we’ll enjoy dreaming of the combination dishwasher/cat feeder/floorscrubber with an optional rice cooker attachment and iPod dock.
Apparently, progress is being made. Hopefully in the next week or so, we’ll have a bid and a contractor who will be ready to knock down our 85 year old walls and and let the asbestos fly!
