The last of the builder's blokes walked out of here at 8pm on Dec. 18th. I was much relieved to see the back end of them. I can't believe though that for all the hard work it's still not over. We found our 1st external leak in the 2nd last lot of rain we had (it's been dry for so long now) & my hubby refused to call the builder. We had some more heavy rain a week ago & the same leak returned but this time it went internally as well. I've pleaded with my hubby to call the builder back before all is ruined but I think that he's actually embarrassed to do it (also in case of a confrontation occurring) & is cranky about it after all the time, money & effort involved in getting it to where we are now. The extension part is completely finished now except for polishing the floors & painting outside (next year's project). My hubby is now up to attacking the ceiling in the old kitchen (now new study) & then he'll paint the room before fixing the dining room which was also affected by the extension. Once those 2 rooms are finished he'll polish the new floors & the two old affected rooms so they're all the same & then we'll get the girls' wardrobes. I suppose it's not much to speak of but with full & part-time work, 2 kids & a masters degree going between us it'll take another eternity yet. At least we can live in it while the mess goes on.
Gab's reflux isn't fixed yet. She's progressed to 2mL Zantac 3x daily & we've had a barium meal which, thankfully, showed all was normal. We now see the paed. just after her 1st birthday & hopefully we'll have weaned her off the medication, or at least reduced it, before then. She still vomits 7-8 times a day & now that she's an avid crawler, I find she vomits & then crawls through it leaving little 'snail-trails' all about the house. I'm finding that I just can't keep the floors clean anymore. Other than that the girls are just marvellous & they adore one another completely.
How's Caleb going now? Has he moved up rooms at pre-school with the biting kid or has the child moved on to a new pre-school? How's the diet going too?
