1) The Serbians are gone! Our house the last two weeks had the highest population of Serbians outside of Belgrade, but as of 9:00 this morning, the renovation was finished. Our upstairs bath is now lovely (except for the wallpaper that I have to strip), our shower and tub faucet actually work, and we can include "new plumbing throughout" when we sell the house someday. Also, the guest room no longer threatens to drop plaster on unsuspecting sleeping guests, so if you plan on staying with us in the future, sorry, no adventure for you.
2) It's Opening Day!!! I celebrated with the ritual listening of "A Dying Cub Fan's Last Request". Also: the Tribune is being sold, and the Cubs will likely be sold off separately. Anybody want to buy a baseball team?
