When Charlie left at noon on Friday, the den was finished, the sun porch was finished, and the bedroom looked like a hurricane had spun through and dropped a paint cloud in its wake. I almost cried. Not only did we have to get the bedroom finished, but Ted’s bathroom had not even been begun! Ted worked all afternoon in the bedroom, while I cleaned windows in preparation for the hanging of the new blinds. Blake arrived Friday night, and on Saturday morning he and Ted both started again on the bedroom. Blake had to leave to go to a cousin’s wedding Saturday afternoon, and Ted worked on until dark, then rose early Sunday morning and finished the bedroom while Blake and I went to church.
It’s going to be a busy few days, but I’ll get one more blog in this week before Thanksgiving – probably on Wednesday. I have to be in Albany all day tomorrow – Bear and I both have to get our hair “done”. Dawn is going with me, and we plan on just having a girls’ day out after I drop off the Bearster and before my appointment at 2:30. Blake has to spend the day at the car repair shop – he’s got a window that’s stuck in the down position (bad news when it rains). Ted is going to be working on his bathroom all day while we’re gone. He thinks by Tuesday everything will be done – including getting all the blinds hung. I have to give him five stars for all the work he’s done since the contractor left.
Have a great week, and see you before Thanksgiving!
P.S. I posted a new update over on the Mackinac Island blog. You can see it at http://bree1972.wordpress.com.
