Well, this week will be filled with “housework.” Not the usual sweeping, mopping (which I now call sharking), and washing dishes; but the sheetrock hanging, deck building and plumbing variety.
My in-laws are visiting to help us with some of these projects. Yes, I have the most amazing mother and father-in-law!! I also have a pretty great little brother (in-law) now! I always wanted one growing up! The sheetrock is on hold until we can figure out some of the plumbing. Apparently you can’t just put things where you want to, even if it makes the best use of room! There is this thing called “the code” you must follow, and I am not talking morse here! Although, it makes about the same about of sense to me.
So we are building the deck outside of the new side door because it is about 6 feet off of the ground and the bank says we have to have steps or something, with a rail, outside of the door. Yesterday we got the footings dug and the frame built. Today, we hope to set the posts and maybe put up a couple of floor joists between church services. Tonight we are going to a homeless shelter an providing dinner and a message (the whole church not just me and J).
