A Few Things Left to Do

Or so I’ve promised my crew, which has expanded to include not only Grandpa but also my brother Matthew, who found himself repaying an old IOU last spring by installing my wrought-iron fence. I even persuaded our younger brother, Nathan, to help me tile the kitchen backsplash.

I moved in a little over two years ago, and it does feel like home—although there are a few things left on my ­to-do list. For one, even after all this time, the master bath needs new tilework. Maybe Dad will have some free time over the holidays. I’ll make a note to ask him.
