Family and home issues are distracting me from managing my diabetes. I am doing my best to be vegetarian/vegan this weekend to help manage my cholesterol, but I don't know how well I'm doing. Also, I drink WAY too much booze.
It's really lovely how MEN get together and combine their testosteronal powers to scare ignorant home-owner ladies like me. I had three Eastern European gentlemen who work for the City of Toronto's Downspout Program (www.toronto.ca\water) come to scare me first, ten minutes early. Then official Toronto Downspout Man Bill came (exactly on time) to scare me some more. Then the Large Toronto Roofing company professional Toby (in gorgeous clean black bib-alls) came to scare me even more. I'm glad it was a nice sunny, though chilly, day. I got rid of most of my wine hangover by going out in a t-shirt and light pants and clearing off the back patio in 0C weather so that the Men with Ladders and t-squares could climb up and tell me how really really desperate my roof situation is.
My original good honest roofer called me back today and said, yep, they're scaring you. He's been in the business for decades and had given me good info (but I'd really like to know what's up there). The Large Toronto Roofing company professional Toby will be back on Monday morning to tell me all about it. I gotta call my insurance company about this pretty soon...
