We Are Pooped!
For the last two days we old retired folks have been putting in eight hour days at our daughter Jenn's home. We are redoing the kitchen cupboards. Monday they got sanded. Today they got two coats of primer paint. Tomorrow they get two? coats of paint. Thursday we finish what hasn't gotten done and Friday we install the new hardware. Saturday I'm taking a work break. I feel like I'm on one of those decorator shows on HGTV. But I haven't seen one HGTV show that has a crawling baby and a cat under foot while a project is being done. Baby Jack Aidan seems to be taking it all in stride. He is just very curious as to what we are doing in his house. Mr. Merlin the Cat got put away in an upstairs bedroom to keep his little paws out of the paint. Our daughter Jennifer is the program manager of this operation. First comes the painting. Then the new counter tops and sink will be installed by a kitchen supply company. Then the floor people arrive to install new hardwood flooring. So you guessed it. The program manager not only has a three step program but deadlines for each step. So we need to get to bed at a decent hour to hit the road again tomorrow. So much for listening to McCain, Clinton and Obama tonight. Oh, and VA is under a tornado warning tonight! So hold on to your bedcaps, it may turn into a dark and stormy night.
