Today, we lost a piece of the House

Not figuratively. It is an actual part of the House. A window sash, to be exact. I was walking up the stairs and noticed a very strong, cold breeze. At first, I thought the contractor who was here this morning forgot to close the door leading to the terrace. When I went there, everything was fine. The room was a little cold, but otherwise fine. When I closed the door and walked through the hallway, I realized the breeze was coming from an opposite direction - the guest bathroom. Sometimes, one of the sashes on the casement window swings open. Well, this time, it looks like it flew away. I can't seem to find it anywhere... It's not on the roof, not in the bushes, and not on the ground... It simply vanished...

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
