Drafts

I have drafts right now from the classes. The Tues/Thurs ones, which I got yesterday, aren't too great. The students forgot everything they learned doing the bits and pieces I assigned leading up to the paper. And getting them back tomorrow will be hard.
I meet with the handyman (Dan) again this morning to go through the house one more time. I'd love to tell him to put new tile in the kitchen, but there's little point to that. I can't afford to get a new stove and rip out the cabinets now. More storage needs to be there, and that will be a major project too.

Well, I have been in my house 11 years and am still working on things that I wanted to do when we moved in...

Besides, there is always something with a house.

That's the truth.
But the handyman gets a gleam in his eye. He's an artist with this sort of stuff, and he told me on a walk through Home Depot that he can get contractor's price on model kitchens at the stores and get one in the house for under $3000. or so.

Excellent! That is good... Glad you have somebody who is willing to help.

I have decided to do your series starting Tuesday. Not sure if it's two or three parts. I have two long drives in the next four days, so I don't want to start till then in case I'm just too tired. Also, it shouldn't be broken by the weekend but should just flow till done.

Yes, I am lucky in my friends and helpers.

I'm looking forward so much to the interviews appearing in your blog!
