Today has been really boring and it is driving me crazy. I haven’t really had anything to do here at work. I am not able to order anything new until the beginning of the next month, so I’m sort of stuck. To make it all a bit better/worse I have a dentist appointment at 2pm. So yes, I get out of work and end the boring work day, but at the same time I have to get two cavities filled! Gah, not good. I should be out of there by 3pm, which is when I will have to go pick up my son. With a numb face. *facepalm* I m really not lookinf forward to going to the dentist, or paying the bill.
Yesterday, towards the end of the day, a co-worker of mine dropped a Lowes gift card on my desk. It was for helping his son build a computer, and troubleshooting the issue they were having. It was $50 which is better than the $0 I had before. I decided that I would put it to good use after work. I went home and swapped vehicles with my dad, because I needed a truck. I headed to Lowes where I bought a 6′ ladder and a pack? container? thingy? of R-13 batt insulation for my garage. My framing is 2′ on center and the batt insulation was the only kind that was wide enough to fill those gaps.
Over the next few weeks I want to start on getting the insulation up, and bought. This will be a bit tricky on the ceiling and behind my work bench. I have to detach my bench from the wall that is currently boarded up and move it. Afterwards I have to take the existing plywood off and install the insulation. I won’t be able to put the bench back until the sides are complete since it stick out about 2′ from the back wall. Other than those two parts the rest of the walls should be fairly easy. I will try my best not to get fiberglass in my eye and hurt myself in anyway. I can’t guarantee anything though!
Well that is all for me. Depending on how I feel when I get home I may change out of my work clothes and start insulating. I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀
