Friday, my aunt reports:
Today for lunch Jen, John, David and I had frozen pizza. Brian the Tile was invited, said he had another job, but asked to be invited again.
John did wiring--smoke and CO 2 alarms. It was very noisy. He went to the dump.
Dan and David did plastic plumbing. Dan went driving.
Jen sorted chaotic piles of stuff, and bought/picked up beer (vital) pendant lights for Rob's stairway, green tile for her bathroom and plastic plumbing bits.
Saturday I got to the house around 11:30 so wasn't wildly productive before lunch, which was quiche and salad. My parents ripped up many floorboards (my dad is determined that one area of my floor at least WILL NOT SQUEAK, DAMMIT). After lunch Jen and I put up vapour barrier in my kitchen using the cool stapler that runs off the air compressor. Also, black gunk. The black gunk was a pain in the ass, although having watched a similar operation on the 3rd floor I don't think we were using the gun correctly.
Then we made some project plans using Bristol board and Post-It notes, which nobody but us will use, but I found it helpful.
Then I helped my parents with the floorboards, which took forever.
Then I went to monkeycommando
's birthday party and was very dull company. Did I mention that it rained all day Saturday?
It went on raining all day Sunday, when I went up to the cottage with John, Dan, and pariah_ink
to put the dock away. I must say that the chest waders have been a wonderful addition to this process -- I don't mind wading around in the muck at all now, although I did nearly get stuck at one point. My parents did not come, but sent chili.
Then we drove back to the city and I had a shower and sneezed all evening. I'm not sure if it was allergies or a cold. Today will tell. Unless, of course, it's more spores. I really would have liked to stay in bed this morning, though.
