I'm not a jewelery person at all. My watch and this wedding band is all I have ever needed or wanted. That ring is was so much more than just a ring. The swelling should go down in a few days but I hope I will have this indention in my finger forever.
My poor sweet hubby, if all these workmen throwing estimates at us is not enough he had to put up with my melt down yesterday over my wedding band. He said and did everything right, go figure!! Ha. Yesterday just wasn't a good day. I think I have drained out all of the tears for now (I hope) Once my Dr. gives the OK I will have the ring resized and have hubby put it back on where it belongs.
Today was another day of getting prices on where all that hard earned and saved money will be going. Windows......We have 22 windows, not all of them need to be replaced. The back of the house is in really good shape but the front and side windows have taken a beating from all this southern weather. Hubby wants to replace everything, I am OK with just the 12 that must be taken care of. Thus far we are looking at $800.00 per window, the price could go up if they run into any wood rot. Hopefully we doing the updates before the wood rot has set in. At the minuman we are looking at $10,000.00 for the windows that must be replaced $18,000.00 to take care of everything. UGHHHHH
We still have a few more estimates to come in for windows but I figure they will all be in the same ball park. Holy cow. The totals are adding up fast and we haven't even gotten started. As everyone knows there are always some expensive surprises along the way when you working with an older home. Our goal is to have all the bids in by the end of the month so we can get the work started in September. Roofers are next on the list.
As is normally the case, Hubby has been called back to the project early :( He will be on the road first thing in the morning. Dog gone it!!! I am thankful he was at least able to be around to talk with the men giving us bids for the AC units. I don't have a clue when it comes to anything involving electricity. We were also able to get my car into the shop for the repairs that will thankfully be covered by the warranty. One funny thing in regards to that. The dealer put me in the same model as I already have but the NEW improved 2014. Lots of talking with me over going ahead and trading up to the NEW 2014!! Ha, dream on, we are doing home repair's. I will drive the car I have until she hits 250,000 miles or more.
Now to finish packing hubby up for his long trip back. We know more now than we did last week as far as what we are going to have to pull from savings. We have had the time to talk over the brands and companies we both feel most comfortable with. The most important of all he has had time to visit with the grands and big kids.
Sweet little Mason man told his mommy last night when she tucked him in "Nanny and Papaw, love you" Ya, more tears. Oh how we love what God has seen fit to bless us with.
