Snowed a little last night – maybe a inch and it’s very cold. Still no men here to cut holes in the walls or floor. Plumber has not arrived. The three year old woke up at 3am and played till 5am.(she’s now sleeping peacefully) I’ve been up since 3am. It’s not a pretty sight, especially after 2 hours of edits.

Why am I still on the same chapter? Maybe I need an easier profession – I hear there are openings for peacekeepers in the Congo.
