Catch up  
 So, last week I had some weird bug/food poisoning thing, pretty much all week.  Totally sucked, yesterday was my first day back to feeling/eating normally.  Thank goodness that's over.  Yesterday, I also had my appointment w/the ear-nose-throat specialist.  Turns out, I have nasal polyps.  Doc wants a CAT scan to see what's behind them, and it's definitely surgery, tentatively scheduled for August 18th.  Good news: my constant congestion will soon be a thing of the past!  Bad news: surgery.  *shudders*  It's outpatient, and supposedly very simple.  We'll know more after the CAT.  He also tested me for allergies.  Nope, not allergic to any pollens or pet dander.  Just a mild allergy to dust mites, that shouldn't bother me much post-surgery.

This past weekend saw kistha and dthon visiting.  I roped them into helping me make a duct tape dress form, to better photograph my sewing projects, most particularly the steampunk pirate gown.  I was very dissatisfied with mirror shots.  I'm almost done with the overskirt, so expect some photos soon. :)

On another note, we made the local news, or our rentals did, with the huge fire that took out two of our units last night.  See that photo, with the fireman on the roof?  Yeah, the firemen ripped the roof up, and that gout of flame came out.  The fire was started because one of our tenants let her cigarette can she keeps outside overflow, and apparently it caught fire and went right up the duplex and across the whole back, into the eaves and from there into the attic.  My f-in-l is being super calm.  This is why we have insurance, after all.  He feels bad for both of the families being displaced, and of course, he's not super happy with the cause, but what can you do?  It's not like she had any idea her cigarette can was going to catch fire.  *le sigh*  This means my husband's summer break has vanished into lots of construction work with his Dad.  He is, as you might imagine, less than thrilled.

I'm glad everyone got out OK. Bummer about the rest of M's summer break being trashed. They still going to hike or is it canceled now? Shitty. Well, much loves to you all.

Still hiking. Jim has to wait to do anything until the insurance company inspects, and he also has to apply for permits, or something.

Yeah, it's a relief everyone, even the pets, got out safely. As I suspected, it made the front page of last night's paper, big gouts of flame and all.
