backwards to get to the other side.
What's been going on in Greeneville? A lot of chaos! The kitchen and the bath are tore up. No sink upstairs for the last two weeks. We have a utility tub in the basement, thank heavens. I'm getting my exercise running up and down the stairs!

|Missing in action!|
The sales agent is coming out tomorrow to look over all the mistakes and I'm hoping we won't have to go to war. She has already ordered new hinges, new pantry door and the missing shelf and roll-out. She didn't sound to enthusiastic on the phone about the moving of the spice rack, but for that kind of money I just am not going to be put off. The new parts came and now I have lots of big boxes sitting all over again.
I do love the wood they are made of though, hickory, each door is unique. The new stove and refrigerator are being delivered on the 22nd. I'm crossing my fingers the fridge will fit where it is to go. I am afraid the installer put the cabinets to close to the end of the wall.
All we have to do then is paint and put in the new light fixtures and wa-la a new kitchen!
Trying to decide if I want to sand down my old table and chairs and paint them or just start looking for something new. I'd like to find something in an antique/used furniture shop with lots of personality over brand new.
We found a company to build our garage last week too. They were tickled that we have a nice level spot for it to go on and won't need to much grading done. We had the building inspector out twice, once to view the property and tell us what we can and cannot do and then he came back when bossman had it all measured out and marked and gave us the go ahead. We had to go to Johnson City and sign the contract for the building and then go get the building permit. We're all set and in September we should be the proud new owners of a garage! Bossman will be happy then!
I purchased a refurbished iPad Air 2 this last week and it vibrates something fierce when the sound is on! Contacted Apple and they tested it remotely and said it seems to be operating properly but something might be loose so I have to take it to an Apple repair dealer. Thank goodness its only 30 miles away in Johnson City! Don't they make anything right anymore?
Bossman's cell phone wasn't working well and we were notified that they are updating their towers and it wasn't going to work at all very soon. We got him a new one and then the transfer of the phone number didn't go through right so we ended up just getting a new number for him instead of waiting several more days. He just has a trac-fone as he doesn't use it enough to warrant another big bill. Very frustrating trying to get a hold of someone to work it out! Press this number, press that number, hold for 5 minutes only to be disconnected and do it again, transfer me to someone else and then someone else.... Isn't technology grand?! But he has a new smartphone now and my old iPad, this old man is moving into the new century! He's hooked on Words with Friends! Not only does he have to learn the new phone and all its gadgets, I set him up with Facebook last week too! Hope his brain doesn't short circuit on me!
You can see there's been a lot going on here, but Saturday we went to a bluegrass music festival in Hot Springs NC with our neighbors and we had a lovely time. A relaxing end to a busy week. Looking forward now to the free summer concerts at Dogwood Park each Sunday here in Greeneville.
