    What did you do today?

    So many industrious people. I've been working off and on, putting up my crystal Christmas tree. The lights change, or can stay either white or multi color. It's just me here, so no one else is bothered that it is not a conventional tree. (I'll probably keep it up.)

    Porch repaint and ceiling fan

    What a wonderful porch and parking area. I would put the fan between the lights and on a separate switch from the lights. I don't know for sure about the scraping.

    Improper plumbing & trying to remodel bathroom/laundry

    I really like your idea of the shower curtain tension bar across the back to hang things from. You're a smart cookie.

    Garage rot.... things look bad, and worse, and worse!

    Also, local churches often have outreaches that help the community. My mom had the end of her double wide home redone at their expense and labor. It was an outreach group from a church my friend was a member of. Mom and I were not a member of the church. So, that's is another option.
