French renovations, Day 46: Hello chimney!

10,415 steps

I did more visa paperwork in the morning, finalizing my cover letter and a few other items. We will be mailing the application off next week after a final look-through with our immigration counselor.

A short afternoon of work for Eric and me: opening up the rest of the chimney. Because the right side of the chimney becomes increasingly shallow, we decided not to open more up on that side. We'll cover that part back up and keep just the tall parallel area open for bookshelves or cupboards.

Also: isn't it ridiculous that 2 hours of work looks so fast and easy???

Also: I ❤️ the Bosch jackhammer

At the bottom was a big round pipe that we had to break up. At some point it was a chimney pipe from the downstairs apartment but obviously no longer functional.

I'm not sure how we'll clean all that soot off: sandblasting? scrubbing with soap and water? But that's for another day...

We have a plumber coming on Monday at take a look at replacing the main water shutoff and to give us an estimate for connecting into the cast-iron sewer lines. Crossing my fingers that it's doable. I don't dare touch the main sewer lines, since they serve the entire apartment building. This will be one of the few things that we pay a professional to help us with.

Today I was so thankful that Eric likes to take the kids out to the park whenever possible. They went out for lunch and again after school. In our house, the saying "Dad is fun, mom is functional" is very true!

Dinner: ratatouille on couscous, peach ice cream floats for dessert

  1. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him. That was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made a promise that anybody I know that has a relationship problem, I would be of help to such a person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem.
