Homeless People and Missionaries

Well, summer at Grundy has been fabulous and a little hectic.  By hectic, I mean kind of insane.  Both of my sisters are now officially homeless – they sold their houses and plan to move into their gorgeous new RV.  Plan is the operative word.  This is the RV that was badly damaged back in Texas in December.  Finally, after seven months of waiting, they got word that it was ready, so off they went to Texas to pick it up.  The weather there was a balmy 105 degrees so they didn’t linger.  They made the round trip in just over 10 days!  When they got back to Grundy, they learned that the repair people in Mission (Missionaries?) needed a bit more specific directions when completing their work, e.g.  Put the sink in AND hook it up AND put a washer in there.  Then put the toilet in AND hook up the pipes AND maybe don’t fill the pipes with grout.  Put the banquette seats in AND bolt them down so people don’t flip off them when they sit.  And when you put the carpet in, cut off the extra stuff; don’t just tuck it back in and tack in down so there’s a big lump when you go into the bedroom.   You get the idea…..   So, after only a few days, they sent the rig off for repairs to Sudbury and moved in with me.  They’ve been waiting 2 weeks for an estimate that was supposed to be done in 3 days.  This is not looking promising.  

Meanwhile, our cars our loaded with stuff, my RV is wall to wall clothes and stuff but we’re having fun playing Dominoes, Super Tock and watching Coronation Street.  

The weather has cooperated and we’ve had very little rain, which is a nice change from the past two years.  And the weather is nothing….not hot, not cold, not windy, not still….just nothing.   We’re kinda hoping for something soon.  Just to be clear….something good.
