Things settling down a bit. (copied from old weblog)
The house is finally tolerable, though I am still disappointed. Chuck is coming over with his drill (I wouldn't trust me alone with portable power tools either) to help me install the rest of the cabinet locks since my elbow grease has been no match for the laminate-surfaced cupboards here. Things in general are looking a little better than when I got home last week, but it remains to be seen what will happen so I can only say that I'll post more when I have more to share.
Dates for traveling to/from Colorado are set at 14 July and 2 August. Prepare for the best; expect the worst.
