Fixing the damage

Have you ever seen someone so happy to be on their hands and knees?!?

Well yesterday gave us a scare when Home Depot informed us they no longer carry the flooring we installed. Although they said they were showing nine boxes in their inventory, they couldn't find it. Thanks Salinas Home Depot. They checked other stores and said... no stores in the area had it.
But I never settle for no.
I called them today and at first I was getting the same story. Then they transfer me to the pro desk. Come to find out, the inventory system was showing four boxes in the Gilroy store. So after getting a visual confirmation that Gilroy actually knew where their boxes were, I went up to Gilroy and now Robert is installing the replacement boards.
It's starting to be quite a mess though as he has to remove more to get to the replacement area because of the type of flooring this is. Happy Memorial Day to us!

Water Cooler Disaster

It doesn't look so bad on the surface... the wood is just starting to buckle.

The damage... All the wet pieces need to be replaced. We'll be at Home Depot today. This was not how we wanted to be spending our Memorial Day Weekend. Let's hope I don't go into labor today. Or maybe if I do, it will all be fixed by the time I get home!

We officially decided to cancel our delivery and get a Brita Water Pitcher.

Side Yard

Our neighbor was working on the fence between our houses and knocked down a bunch of weeds in this section for us. It's pretty yucky back here. The gate at the front doesn't open up to the front yard but we discovered that this small fence will open and close to create some type of dog run or pin for keeping in some animal. It wouldn't have kept Pepper in, but we're guessing that's what it was for. Maybe one of these days I will have an "after" photo to post of this area. Wouldn't that be nice? I don't even know where to start with the yardwork!!!
