I really worked today!

Now that I did work all day, I have little or nothing to report about it.  Working all day just doesn't make for a good blog.  But I have to get going here because the contractor dude, has plans to get the dry wall hanger folks here by next week.

So with that deadline swarming about in my mind, I was up and at it fairly early.  But hanging insulation is a nasty business.  The fiberglass gives off a dust, that seems to work its way thru all the protective clothing you are wearing, and the very same clothing makes you perspire, which makes the dust stick to you all the more.  Can you see me digging away at all those itchy places?

So when I went after more rolls of insulation at the local Lowes store, I was certain that I was nuts.  But when I returned home, the contractor dude was here building the last side of the shower walls and finishing his part of the deal.

At some point the plumber has to come back, and it is rumored that it will be tomorrow, but we will have to wait and see if that comes true.   Without the plumber and myself getting done, the drywall will have to be rescheduled.  I am determined that it will not be me that causes problems.

As of tonight I am about two thirds done, and I am hopeful to knock  out the rest in the next couple of days.  But for now, I turned the lights off at about 5 PM tonight and went for that extended scooter ride!  Remember, I had a full tank of gas!

  1. Well, the Scooter ride definately sounded like the best part of your day alright.

  2. I agree with Al - the scooter ride was definitely the funniest part of your day. The rest was just necessary.

  3. Sounds like the basement project is moving right along. If I haven't mentioned it before, I really like your header picture.

  4. Glad to hear the project is still moving along nicely but you've still got time for scooter rides.
