not really, but it feels like it.

we've had to replace our windows and 1 skylight in the fam room in the back of our house. We spend 80% of our awake time in there, but the windows were crappy and 1 skylight was cracked from ice damage this past winter. We figure replacing them, while expensive, will pay for itself in improved heating bills. The windows and slider got done a few weeks ago, but the skylight was done last night. Now, only 1 skylight was broken, but wow it was screwed. 2 full width cracks, plus the glass had shifted. leaking barely describes it. Home depot said that while we could replace just one skylight, since the other 2 were fine, we had agree to let them reflash and reshingle the other 2 skylights. I wasnt thrilled as the roof was just done 2 years ago, but I understand their logic. they dont want to have to be responsible if someone else's crappy roof job causes leaks and it cant be figured out who's work is responsible. So we agreed.
the work got done yesterday. The skylight they brought was a better one then we asked for, we wanted one that was static, they brought one that opens and is screened, but OK, we're not paying for anything extra and it was worth it for them to not have to go back and get cheaper skylight. Work is done, they leave(but I wasnt there, I was at work by then) and we settle in and admire the work. The we get a torrential rainstorm. the new skylight? Solid and dripfree. Our old, perfectly good, non leaking skylight? One is leaking like a sunnofabitch. Luckily we have not yet signed our satisfaction contract, and they're sending someone out. So glad we got a heavy rainfall last night

the Silber-Lefton family holds amazing parties open to so many people. So many of us have been there many times a year for tent pole parties that have become annual events with their own three letter acronyms even (EOS, BOS). They often open their home for other folks to host parties their own homes can't accomodate. It's time to show our appreciation and give some back. They really need new gas grills, the ones they have have been barely limping by. A really good one would be around 800$. If we can get enough for at least one that would be great, 2 even greater. if we end up somewhere in between they could use the excess for some infrastructure updating.
Some can afford more than others, but even 5$ here and there add up


Let's get this to work in time for the End of Summer party

And Adira is home, tired and loaded down with dirty laundry.

It was interesting that this year she focused on new skills. She managed to learn how to juggle clubs in 2 weeks, which was amazing. She also did rope this time, instead of silks, lyra or web. This is a new apparatus for her. Part of this, I think, is that fabric was incredibly popular this year, and rope is more unusual and had fewer people wanting to do it in performance.

We went for dinner at a microbrew pub in Lyndon that only served "gourmet" pizza that was not great. [livejournal.com profile] feste_sylvain enjoyed his beer. Adira was barely keeping her head up. Stopped for ice cream and then she slept most of the way home.

and this weekend made me realise that it just doesnt get used anymore by our kids. Is there anyone in the greater suspects crowd who would want to buy it off me for something nominal? It cost 4K new, it's Childcraft(really good) and I have the box with the installation info and can of enamel for touchups. you would have to get it out yourself. It's got a climbing wall,slide,rope climb,etc...as well as swings

Skylights are replaced by roofers, not by window replacement people. That means we need to get 2 different sets of bids
