Preparing for the parental visit

So, I am $254 less rich, but now have a non-leaky toilet and a clean house ($189 of that was to the plumber). The plumber replaced everything in my toilet tank except the flush lever and the flush valve that I'd previously replaced. I have a new fill valve, intake line, overflow line, tank to bowl gasket, and new tank bolts. It's worth the cash, especially considering that my mom and step-mom are coming into town Thursday.

And the house should be clean by the time I get home. The cleaner was supposed to come tomorrow, but they got the time wrong; good thing I decided to straighten up my papers last night instead of sleep early. She was also supposed to speak English, as this is the English speaking Polish lady deal, but she doesn't. But, she was doing an excellent job by the time I left, so we'll see how it goes. This house cleaning deal could be very addictive.

And tonight is week 3 of doggie class; hopefully it won't rain. I haven't done much work with the puppo this week, what with the rain and impending parental doomvisit, so we'll see how it goes. At least he already has 'sit' down.
