Guess I have got to run down to Lowes before Hurricane Lane hits to pick up extra propane and, while I'm there, supposedly my cabinet pulls have arrived. I tried to exchange propane tanks several days ago but Lowes was out of propane. Besides, I do not want to be physically inside the house, cringing, when the workers cut through my wall to finish installing the drain for the bath tub. We moved the toilet flange yesterday. They were not sure it could be done, I think. So much digging. So much dirt and lava rock piled up in my bath.

The first thought that entered my head when the general contractor from Lowes said our drywall was compromised (due to a long-time slow leak from our sink's shutoff valves) was where in the garage did I put a utility knife and level. Because the Lowes' crew were getting ready to leave for lunch. Figured I would just cut out the drywall while they were gone and remove it. A weekend to dry out. Should be OK.But no, the general contractor carried on like this was an enormous issue. Hey, I get it. You can tell people there isn't much you can't do, from tiling, to plumbing, to electrical; how I have built a fireplace, a garage, installed 3 skylights and remodeled a good number of houses, but they look at this 5-foot, 66-year-old woman standing in front of them and they say, right.Before I kn...
