Steps 3, 4 and 5

Carl’s tasks this week have included moving boxes.
Between 15-20 each day.
We are slowly gaining back some floor space.
Of course, it is quickly occupied by the next load of boxes.

One of my tasks has been visiting a chiropractor.
My back issues were just a bit over the top this time.
(Actually, lower down, but painful none-the-less.)
I have been to see him every day this week.
On the plus side – I have left work essentially on time every day this week.

So now the Chiro wants to see me for the next 8 months.
Looking at x-rays I can see some things that are bad, and one hip is noticeably higher than the other.

On the home front, we did meet with the contractor on Monday to talk about starting demolition work.
First step is to determine what toxic substances are in the room we are going to take apart.
With this house our watchword has been, “If it could be toxic, it will be.” Asbestos, lead, we have it all.
Carl took samples to a lab to test today. We should know by the beginning of next week what type of zoot suits we will need to wear.

    have you guys been eating paint chips again? how many times have I told you ‘don’t eat the paint!’.

    and of course the chiro wants to see you for 8 months. he’s got bills to pay too!

    I’ve got that box scenario going on in my house too. I shouldn’t say this out loud but I’m starting to feel like I’m gaining some ground. Finally.
