We have not seen the smiling face of Mr. Contractor these past couple of days. Mir thinks it might be related to something she did last week…Mir had a most unusual reaction to a suggestion from Mr. Contractor – she gave him a hug. She apologized for infringing on personal space but the deed was done and so we have not seen much of him. We now are experiencing Contractor withdrawal. Don’t get me wrong, the work continues but wethinks he may be avoiding us or at least Mir. Damn her expression of joy! But, what’s a happy homeowner to do?
