How was everyone’s week? It was a lot better than last week for me I can definitely say that much. My mom is here visiting for the first time since February right before Covid lockdown (she was able to quarantine and then get a rapid test). It has been so helpful having her here I’ve been able to get so much work done and also just feel like I have a minute to breathe. Craig is per usual making a ton of progress up in Vermont working on the bathrooms this week. I’ll share more progress early next week when I head up there again. Honestly I can’t believe it’s already mid-November this month is FLYING.
