And On My Homeowner's Woes...

I've now talked to the contractor, and I should have shiny new gutters in place next week. Yay! He also said that, yeah, he could see that I had bad drainage in the front yard -- it slopes for a foot or two, and then for a while it just doesn't. He seemed to think that even just getting that taken care of should help a lot, and, you know... that much, I'm pretty sure I can afford. So, assuming new gutters fix my immediate problem, which they should, I'll look into that next. And then I can start saving up for whatever else needs to be done. Now, hopefully my brain will just stop stressing out over it all. Right, brain?

Not that life doesn't keep hitting me with more annoyances, though. I just got a message on my answering machine saying there's been a recall on my car. Apparently it just needs some software updated -- and how 21st-century is that? -- so it shouldn't be too big of a deal, but that still means I'll have to make time to get it into the dealer. Oh, well, maybe I'll get the oil changed while I'm at it...


  1. Yay, a step forward! And, yay, another data point (datum?) to analyze your options instead of fretting!

    1. Yes, and analysis is much more productive, and much less stressful, than fretting. :)
