The week finally ground to a close, somewhat.
Early Friday evening, though, my sister called me up and told me that she had come in the house and apparently there was a skunk under the house that--as Ambrose Bierce so artfully stated-- had "uttered the inaudible discord of its race."
Anyway, Sis & BIL have been in major spruce-up mode in preparation for putting their house on the market.
Anyone have tips on skunk odor remediation in a 100+ year old wooden house? I'm guessing dipping it in tomato sauce is not going to be an option... There MUST be something can be done?
Friday afternoon, Holly so graciously drove into Dallas and brought me a favorite dish from a favorite restaurant I haven't visited in years. Thanks, Hols - you're a peach! Anyway, it was nice to sit in the office, chatting laughing with her, as I've done sore little laughing in that room lately. Today was a three-fer, as someone brought me a goody basket/thank you thingie, someone sent flowers AND then I get to see Holly on top of all that? Bonus round!
I hope to get some rest this weekend and to be better at pinching off work next week - I'm still not 100% myself, and I feel in danger of getting sick again. Going to laze about this weekend, and we'll see how I feel next week. I may need to take an extra day off or some such.
Anyhoo - anyone with suggestions on the skunky deal, please don't be shy.
