Throwing Rocks and Mud Slinging?
Maybe its Spring? A warm weekend, some rain helps bring things out...
Mom has been really sick she relapsed and I spent Thursday night in the ER with her...but I refused to have her admitted to the hospital...Older people go into hospitals and come out feet first... got some good drugs for her and brought her home to recover in her own bed....and she has improved..still a long way from recouped...but on the way we think. I was able to get some work done in the little sunny room I am re-doing...this little room is approx. 6 x 8. I put down the wood floor last week, it had been carpet and sub floor...
THE vent is kinda in the way since there was a built in window seat in front of these windows...I removed that. I guess I should have moved this vent..but I don't think Its going to be a problem...I wont be staining and finishing the floor until all the sheetrock is hung, mudded, sanded and the trim applied. I will sand it when I sand the floor in the adjoining room.
My sister and I have never done sheetrock, but we figure it cant be that hard!! SO we hung it...
IT was hard work, and we still have to put on tape and 3 coats of joint compound, then sand that off, and put up the trim around the windows, ceiling, baseboards, etc. The other rooms in this house have quarter round molding in the corners no tape so IM planning to do that and not try taping corners I figure Ill be doing good IF I can tape and "mud" the straight lines.
Annie is bored with all this Make Over crap!!
Another project is IM trying to evict a squirrel that is living in the screen porch attic...I set the trap UP in the attic....I really hope I catch him, cause he is chewing holes in the soffit of the porch!!!
I'll keep you posted OH and there is the Pack Rat in the old tool shed...he is NEXT!!!
HOPE your spring is moving right along!!
