We had our first backyard party in our new house due to Covid-19. It was not a big party. Our daughter, her husband and their twin daughters and our friends we met in our neighborhood, which consist of Christina and her 8 year old daughter, Maria.
It was a beautiful day in York, Pennsylvania. We spent the day in the backyard watching the girls play.
Maria has been giving the girls toys she has outgrown like the little tyke car and trailer.
I have 5 wonderful children who will do anything that they are capable of doing for their Mother, me. I am very lucky this way.
My oldest son, Jared, was in Florida working and visiting friends. I asked him if I bought his plane ticket home, for which I used miles so it was very cheap, and a train ticket from Florida would he come and level my floor upstairs. It was the only thing I didn’t know how to fix. Of course, he told me yes.
After he got here and looked at our attic conversion. He told us it wasn’t wired that just the power was brought upstairs. He also found that the plumbing wasn’t right either. This was done before we bought the house but it was never finished. It took him a lot longer than he thought but he got the upstairs plumbed, wired and the floor leveled. He also enlarged the area we plan to put our bed in.
He found that the downstairs bathroom was vented into the upstairs. It is now vented outside. Also, the upstairs bathroom vent is in now too. We can actually put a toilet in now. Yeah!
While on the roof installing the vents he noticed that he could see light around the chimney. He fixed that too.
He also put up a new mantel for the fireplace. We just need to finish it out.
Thank you so much, Jared! I am so lucky to have such wonderful children.
