You've heard it before in our blog. Semper Gumby, meaning always ready to be flexible (as a former latin student, I am sure we are taking great liberty with that phrase!)
Paul explained, briefly, how many balls we are juggling... yesterday, the workers came to start some projects recommended by our realtor. Silly us, thinking it would take a week or so. No, they will complete 3 bathroom tile jobs, and refinishing our family room's wooden floor in 3 days!!! Yikes. I mean that is great, and it is no wonder that this guy came highly recommended. Of course, we thought it was one guy, only he came with several workers to do all 3 bathrooms simultaneously and a sub contractor who specializes in wood floors. Thus the 3 days, vs a week. (hey, what do we know?!? - obviously not.much.)
Today, Paul went to meet the guy to (what we thought) would be to finish the floors, only he is doing a 2nd coat, and it needs to dry at least 24 hours. Two of our bathrooms are unusable as the toilets were removed, and sitting in tubs or on the nearby floor. The third one has tiles replaced with new adhesive and grout. Hmmm....
Soooooo - Paul went to renew our site for the night, with a late check out - to allow the floor to dry without our wonder dog Zoe's permanent paw prints in the newly polyurethane floor. We quickly rearranged our schedules for tomorrow, and voila! Here we are for another night at Bull Run CG. Thus, Semper Gumby.
Once again, we are mightily thankful for our Journey - our home away from home, soon to be our only home - (yikes! that still takes my breath away!). But wow, the thoughts of seeing our grandtreasures more often, for REAL visits, and seeing all of our kids and extended family and the beautiful USA along the way?
THAT will be breathtaking. So - with Gumby as our mascot - forward ho! ~Marti
PS My friend, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor, made it home on Friday. Pathology is still pending, but the outlook looks good. Another breathtaking moment, seeing her smiling face again!
