Progress finally! Hallelujah!!!

Today, they tested our ceiling speaker, put the insulation back in the ceiling and patched the very large hole with sheet rock. Now for the mud to dry overnight so hopefully the wall and ceiling can be painted tomorrow, then the lights and speaker can be put back in after that dries. It is SO nice to finally have some progress. It felt pretty hopeless for a while, but now things seem to be moving forward.

Friday (11/9) the hardwood floors should come in (hopefully) so they can be put in our house to acclimate for 7 days. Then Monday (11/12) they will try and remove our counter tops and sink without breaking it- not high hopes for this according to the granite guy who came to look at it a few days ago. Will likely break, but they need to at least try and remove it per insurance company rather than just replacing it. Tuesday (11/13) they come to take out all our kitchen cabinets (all except the ones hanging from the wall). We will have to get our appliances, furniture, and kitchen cabinets out of the house - some to the garage, but I highly doubt it will all fit since now we have yard work equipment, bikes, etc, stuff we didn't have when we first remodeled our house and stored our belongings in the garage + more furniture and the kitchen cabinets too! Will definitely need a storage pod by the looks of things. I'm crossing my fingers that maybe the upstairs can start being put back together the week of Thanksgiving??? or the one right after??? Flooring, cabinets, counter tops, sink, appliances, and eventually furniture. Too bad it is a short week, probably not long enough to get it all done:(

We will be kitchen-less for a couple weeks (minus the microwave). So that should be fun. We might end up moving in to my moms for a couple weeks, but we will just see how things go. Who knows when Alexa may decide to come, but I am in no rush for the time being! I will be term this Friday, so technically she can come anytime!!! Let's hope she holds off until things get a little better/more finished around here.
