Yes, we have them. No, they’re not up yet.
With six guys in and out of our apartment just before the wedding celebration, taking the only space not claimed by boxes, the space that belonged to a few out-of-town guests, we, um, didn’t get the slideshows quite as “neat” as we wanted. We’ll post ‘em as soon as we get to that point on the to-do list. : )
So why were there six guys in our apartment? Well it all started on our honeymoon, when Chris mentioned a wet spot on the ceiling…
if it looks like a wet spot…
One day later: One person, one ladder. Climbs ladder, pokes at ceiling. “Yep, that’s a water leak alright. I’ll be back sometime tomorrow.” Looks at Astara, who’s sitting in her crate. “Does she bite?”
Day 3: Two people, one ladder. Debate whether it’s the sprinkler system or regular plumbing. Promise not to get the piano dirty. Make two holes in the ceiling. Realize don’t have flashlight. Crystal gives them a flashlight. Call in third maintenance man. “I think we’re going to have to call a plumber.”
Day 5: Three maintenance men, three plumbers, two ladders, two flashlights, two holes in the ceiling, one tarp. Cut extra hole in the ceiling. (The dust didn’t quite cover the kitchen, living room, and piano.) Smile at tenant and four out-of-town guests standing in the 3′ x 3′ foyer. Use smelly pipe sealant. Promise to patch and paint the holes.
Today: Three ceiling patches, still a little residual dust, and no complaints about the lack of paint because it means no maintenance men! : )
Note: We like the maintenance men fine; we just don’t like the showing up whenever part! ; )
