We swooped across the south with the car thermometer reading 104. Delicate mimosa blossoms bordered much of the roadway home. And, finally, the dry, brown, heat stressed look of Texas... Even with the heat and the drought, I was glad to roll into our home state. [As a Texan, I do have to confess there is something oddly satisfying about being able to pass through six states in a day's drive. We couldn't do that if we were heading west from our house; we'd still be trying to get out of our own state.]
I had been gone for 27 days and really just wanted to make this last day's drive, unpack and relax. But, the only thing worse than coming home to your air conditioner not working when it is 104 is walking in the door and it is still working like a horse... and the drain is clogged... and the switch-off in the pan is not working...
Soggy sheetrock crashed down on the table, chairs and floor. The finish on the table may not recover (Kim, where are you??). And, the hardwood floor has been soaking with soggy sheetrock, too. Not sure how long it has been this way, but the splatters from where it fell are dried. There was a steady drip still falling onto the table and the sheetrock on the floor. If you have a drain in an attic unit POUR BLEACH THROUGH IT TODAY!! Save yourself from this mess!
I'm glad we got home today.
I did find it interesting that the original wallpaper is the same color as I have it painted. Pretty cool. Guess we'll be having some sheetrocking and painting around the Bungalow as soon as everything dries out good.
Anyway, the journey is over.
