“Oh shit,” I say, and drop the phone without erasing it.
At midnight tonight we're pulling 'the witch's hut' from the market.
...so, of course, I just got a showing request for 12:30pm today (must get to cleaning)
I've spent the last 2 days in the rain pulling ivy (which was fun, no really, I do like working in the rain)
Yesterday afternoon I had a pond-guy in to look at the dilapidated pool and give me his thoughts on turning it into a reflecting pond with plants/fish.
...due to his suggestions, I set 4 old hoses to siphon out the water overnight and now it's nearly empty!
(and looking even more like a cesspool)
Also, while we were in Seattle, 1/2 the lid on the septic tank collapsed in. Yeah. Perfect timing, eh? Gotta call someone about that...
So I'd say the witch's hut is in tip-top-witchy-viewing-condition for the showing today.
After the viewing, I figure the pool will be completely empty and I'll be able to get in there with the power washer, a big broom, and a shovel to clean out all the muck.
Yes, and maybe get some more writing done tonight ;)
(I'm feeling pretty good!)
