Out of the Blue

Our plan to move drags on, and I recently ratted out MrsBlue for obstructing the process. But there have been complications along the way as well. We recently got some water in our basement, something that's only happened a few times since we've lived here. This coincidentally came after we removed some ratty old paneling down there which exposed a crack in the foundation. This probably sounds worse than it is, but it did require a repair involving digging up the earth around the crack on the outside and patching it up with cement and a layer of tar. The good news is that the mason who's doing this actually had nothing but good things to say about the brickwork on our 90 year-old house, pointing out that brick houses tend to have relatively harmless cracks from settling around the windows, and we have nothing at all like that here. The bad news is they are working on this right now, and I never would have imagined how distracting and aggravating the clamor of their work would be. It basically seems like someone has been hitting the side of the house with a sledgehammer every few seconds, and it's starting to drive me crazy (okay, crazier). Hopefully they'll be done soon.
