We are back after a long holiday weekend. I can’t say that I’m happy to come back to work but it is time to get going with everything.
Saturday we installed a couple of air conditioners for the second floor and attic. Later that evening my wife had a photo shoot. A girl that I went to college with and worked with for a while came down from about an hour and a half away to get her pictures taken. It was a couple field settings, in the late evening. They turned out great, from what I can tell! 😀 I was watching Everett while the whole thing was going on.
He was having a pretty good time in the weeds.The girl who came down had her son with her for the shoot, and the two of them got to interact a little bit which was nice.
Sunday we did indeed go to the cabin. My dad, brother, cousin, and brother’s friend came out for helping purposes. My wife, mother, and son came for the outdoors. Everett was only there with my wife for a little bit because it was calling for thunderstorms. It did rain for a bit but that was about it, so I was sad to see them go over that. Everett fell in the dirt a few times and didn’t really like that. Here he is with me in the cabin. 😀
My dad is seen here cutting another sheet of plywood for the ceiling. They were able to put up another four sheets.
My cousin and I took the four wheeler and went up and down the hill clearing the debris along the way.
We were able to get five or so trees cut and out of the way as well as maintain some other trails. We came back and hung out for about two hours around the campfire, it was a really nice day.
Monday was a bit rough for me personally because nothing was going my way. We went and got a gate for the attic to allow Everett to have a play room on the other side, and it is the worst gate I have ever seen. It didn’t help that the studs were impossible to find in the wall. I also bought expanding foam to fill the cracks in the other room to keep the bugs out. That is all well and good except the one main gap was way too big and now I need to cut all the foam to look good. It is hot up there and it was a huge pain in the ass. Some of it made its way onto the floor, which was about impossible to get off. After that crap that took way too long, I gave up on the day. I played video games, ate bad food, and made no further progress haha. 😀 After that the rest of the night went OK after that.
That brings us to the lazy Tuesday. I don’t have much going on today and hope it stays that way. I really don’t feel like doing much. I did get a hold of a retired electrician to come look at my lights, I just have to find a date and time that works for us. If I can get the light in and the house looking back to normal I’ll be OK again.
That is it for me! I hope you have a great Labor Day weekend! I’ll see you again tomorrow!
