IT'S COMING TOGETHER!

The progress on the house has been amazing this week.  Not all of the progress is visible in a picture but there has been a houseful of workers all week.  Our cul de sac is often lined with pickups and workers' cars.
The electricians came and finished all the wiring. The plumbers came and we even have water in the house--at least that is what they say, but it is hard to tell because we don't have any fixtures, sinks, toilets or other "water features" in yet. 
Today trim people worked on more siding,Tyvek covering for the porch, and exterior siding on the house. 








Each day things look a little better than the day before. 
Next week it is my understanding that the trim people will continue to do their work, we will wait for a few inspections and then the insulation people will come in and do their work before the sheet rock people begin.

Meanwhile, we are doing well in our neighbors' house but our dog is exhibiting signs of extreme agitation over all the changes in her life.  She is 14 years old and was already a bit senile before all these changes began.  The noise and people in our/her backyard was very disturbing to her, then a few thunderstorms caused her to dig out and run away.  Moving her to the yard across the street from our house (where we are staying) was just about the last straw for her.  She has spent part of her time trying to dig out and part of her time pacing the fence line.  She has not been eating well and sometimes acts very confused.  Funny thing is I can understand--I often feel exactly the same way--very confused!

  2. House is looking good. Can you see if the vet would recommend an amount of melatonin you could use to keep your dog from being anxious? I know people who use that successfully with their dogs when the dog has been stressed about something. You just need to find the right amount for the size of your dog.

  3. they also have tranquilizers for dogs. Sounds like just a bit to allow her to ignore all the noise might be helpful. And a glass of wine for you too.
