The Rankins are
finally at their Wit's End.
()Monday May 27, 2002 - I guess we are officially in the
house now. We moved more stuff today. Clayton was helping today
by pushing stuff to the back of the trailer, which is on a slope,
which had a refrigerator, which has wheels, which rolled off the
trailer and crashed into the rocks. After seeing that he was not
under the thing and getting my heart going again, Wink and I got
the rest of the stuff in the house.
()Tuesday May 28, 2002 - We spent more time getting set
up at the new house. I hooked up the washing machine and moved more
()Wednesday May 29, 2002 - I met with two water guys today
and they both want me to pay them almost $4000 to clean up my water.
Verizon hooked up our phone line today and the septic guys waited
about two hours before they cut it. They were working on the sewer
line from the house and cut through both phone lines. I spent the
next 4 hours getting that fixed. I had to tear out a wall in the
utility room and run a new wire and add a junction box outside.
They managed to get the pipe back together so we could flush a toilet.
We have received about three inches of rain this week so they haven't
been able to spread any more dirt. They can't get the final inspection
done until they add more dirt to the field. Then they can fill in
the septic tank hole.
()Thursday May 30, 2002 - Due to rain, there was no septic
()Friday May 31, 2002 - Still no septic work -- Well it
did rain this week.
()Saturday June 1, 2002 - We are getting settled into the
house. There are still boxes everywhere. I would post some pictures
but I lost my camera cable in the move.
()Sunday June 2, 2002 - We are now starting to hang stuff
on the walls.
