Early Morning

The wallboard folks asked if they could come early this morning. 7:30 or so. We were up and ready to go before 7:00.

Jen is trying to figure out why the Roomba stops working before it finishes. I just put a big tarp over the washer and the dryer before the sanding starts today. I’m also trying to sneak in Iron Man 2. I started watching it last night but didn’t get far.

The weekend is so close I can almost smell it. It’s been a tough week. I need a break. Jen and I are both getting to the point where we are feeling the remodeling fatigue. The construction blues. Whatever you want to call it. We just want it to be over. We still have a couple of weeks to go though. They are going to start taping and mudding and sanding the drywall today (are those the correct terms?). It will likely carry over to the beginning of next week. Then paint, then hopefully around the same time the painting wraps up the new flooring will be delivered and that can start. Once that’s done it’s on to the finishing work. Baseboards and things like that. Then we bring in some furniture. Maybe a nice rug. Homey the place up, you know? Then I move my desk downstairs, and then we take a nice long break from construction while I get my insides rewired.

Oh yeah. That. The surgery is 26 days away.
