Six months later ...

Last November, my handyman left a hole in my wall that he couldn't repair. Rain was coming in from around my through-the-wall ac unit, and until that sealant is replaced, there wasn't anything to be done with the wall. Other than jam a towel in the hole.

Then Chicago turned into Chiberia and became one of the coldest winters on record. Too slippery and dangerous for the condo association's maintenance man to replace the sealant. Then it got warmer but it rained all the time. We need two days of dry weather for the sealant to take.

Today, finally, the maintenance man made the repair! Yahoo!

I took today off. Unfortunately, I have a dreadful cold which kept me from getting all the work done I intended to. All I did was vacuum and walk to the vet for Miss Charlotte's meds. Maybe tonight I feel more like doing the work in the folder that is making me feel so guilty.


  1. Sorry you're not feeling well. I hope you got some rest. And knowing the hole is fixed will be a relief. I know the hole would be in the back of my mind all the time.

  2. I hope you're feeling better. Hopefully fewer colds now that the hole to the elements is plugged up.

  3. i just recovered from a cold/hay fever attack...who knows, so i can sympathize with you dear. having house hold task taken care of is a mental relief!
