How is everyone doing today?
I don’t know about you, but we had a lot and wet spring before summer finally showed up. Even now in what should be the throes of summer, we’re having more rain than usual and temperature fluctuations that make the air conditioner optional some days. Trust me, though – I’m not complaining! I’m not a huge fan of hot.
Of course, my crawl space isn’t a huge fan of rain, either. We had an itsy bitsy flooding problem. Thank goodness for friends who have water-pumping equipment and know how to use it. One brand new sump pump later, and I’m still trying to convince my husband that he wants to spend three days down in the crawl space with our teenager so they can seal the space up with an all-new vapor barrier to protect us from future water damage….
Let’s just say the convincing isn’t going all that well.
Maybe I should try to bribe him with grilled hamburgers. Or his favorite ice cream. I’m sure I could come up with a creative way to make him think he wants to be down there with the spiders and who-knows-what-else.
The more I think about it, the less appealing I keep making the job sound. Maybe I should stop while I’m ahead. What do you think?
So what are your plans for the 4th of July weekend? Any grand home improvement projects that you’re trying to trick, bribe, or cajole someone into doing for you? If so, share your tips! If you haven’t already noticed, I could use a few pointers. :)
If, however, crawling around in the dirt during the heat of the day (or getting someone else to do it for ou) isn’t your idea of a fantastic holiday, tell me what is. Anything special planned? Family recipes that’ll be getting a workout?
Have a marvelous and safe holiday!
Remember – our July blab is coming up on July 5th! We’re looking forward to chatting about new releases with Valerie Comer and you! 8:30 p.m Eastern — and if you haven’t subscribed to the July blab — please do!
