Things are never dull around here: We discovered the upstairs tub is leaking into the library. The people who built the house, put a shower in a jacuzzi tub. Why is this an issue you ask? I'm told that "real tubs" have a flange on them to keep the water where it belongs, inside the tub. This tub does not have a flange on it. When one stands in the tub, the caulk gives slightly allowing the water to seep under the shower wall to the floor/ceiling below. We had the caulk replaced, but it didn't help. We can't afford to have the library ruined, SO, we get to put a new tub in our upstairs bath. Of course this means one needs a new floor and who knows what else. Hopefully the contractor we are using for the downstairs bath can also do the upstairs. He's on vacation this week, so we have to wait until Monday to talk to him. We are now using the downstairs bath. Fortunately, we have four full baths!

Master bath: Things are moving, albeit slowly. The glass people came Monday to do their final measurements. I'm told it'll be ready three weeks after it is ordered. Who knows when it'll get ordered! I'm guessing it'll be the end of July before we can move back into our room. Trey says the sooner the better!

Anniversary: Tom and I are celebrating our 22nd anniversary Friday, June 22. We are planning to go to Beau Rivage, a casino hotel in Biloxi, for the weekend. Should be fun.

How am I feeling: Doing better every day.
