Unpacking and other woes


Well we finally have some rooms in the house looking pretty good. We've even managed to conquer a few projects on our ever growing list of things to do. It seems like every project we start leads quickly to another. The 2hr job to replace a leaky stop valve under the sink is now going on day 3. Nick pulled out the cabinet to get better access to valve only to find mold, which extended under the linoleum. So we pulled that up and got everything sufficiently bleached and dried and back in place to find that now that one leak was fixed another had occurred within the facet so now we have to replace the gaskets inside the faucet. We have gotten a lot done :

-repaired leaky shower control and faucet

-installed proper venting for the dryer and got washer/dryer hooked up

-cleaned up the yard some more

-unpacked tons of stuff

-finally figured out where all of our utilities come from



On a sadder note our kitty chaos has disapeared. He got out some time mon night. Neither of us actually saw him leave, but he is nowhere in the house, and we've seen no trace of him since. Hopefully he'll find his way home since I doubt that he'd let anyone catch him.

Oh no, poor Chaos! Do you think he'd go back to your old place?

There's a little bit of Chaos in all our hearts.

Since la familia Ericson is currently fighting with Verizon to get phone/internet service hooked up (and we all know how long that can take!) I thought I'd share the good news that Chaos has been found. He had gone back to the old house. He's fine, a little grumpy and hungry and chaos-y, but no injuries. Yay!

I am still amazed hearing stories of cats returning to their old houses, sometimes miles and miles away. I'm so glad to hear that Chaos is one of those uber-sensitive cats, in that, he had the sense to find his way 'home'. I'm not sure my kitties could do that, but I'm glad I've never had to find out either. I'm glad Chaos is home!

One thing that Chaos seems to have in abundance is instinct.

I'm very glad to hear that he's back. I look forward to coaxing him out for a neck-rub next time I'm up.
