Last of the Sheetrock

It’s been a while so I thought you might want an update. Friday David worked more on removing sheetrock – he worked on finishing the entry and then worked his way up the stairs and worked more on that on Saturday. It was a challenge to get to it all, he had to be innovative in order to get his extension ladder up there and then around the high, small space to get all the sheetrock down.

The concrete guys did more digging and they actually got all the trenches dug out and ready for the concrete but the rain has played havoc with that and it will be a small miracle if they can pour the rest of it later in the week.

Saturday morning I went over to Linda’s house to see her newly renovated bathrooms and new doors. It is always nice once all the renovations are done and one gets to enjoy it. Afterwards we drove to Alvin to an estate sale and it just happened to be in an Antique Mall. It took us a while to work through all those goodies, but we had a great time. Thank you Linda for giving up your morning to go antique shopping with me.

Later in the afternoon we got a special visit from my sister, Penny and her husband, Steve. They came into town to visit a dear friend of ours and then we met up with them for lunch and gave them a tour of the retreat house. We later went to dinner at Opus in Clear Lake Shores. We had a great dinner and it was great to be able to spend time with them and visit.

My oldest son, Josh celebrated his 33rd birthday. It is hard to believe that I have a son 33; they had a big bash so I agreed to watch Wyatt and Kynlee while they went to the party. Unfortunately I didn’t get to go but it was fun watching the kids and it was nice that Penny and Steve got to visit with them before they headed home.

The kids were great and it was nice to be able to play with them – they are growing up too fast!

This morning was a very slow paced day; we just spend time with the kids. It was nice to not have any deadlines and to enjoy them and the rain. Later David went over to the house to finish all of the sheetrock demo in the hall upstairs. It sure looks different and he removed the door jams at the top of the stairs. It sure made a big difference taking that out – much better!

I decided that I would begin working on stripping all of the paint off of the old doors. For some reason some of the paint just peels off, so I agreed to do work to the doors. I’m not too sure how many layers of paint are on the doors, but I counted at least 4.

In the master bath there are 2 doors for entry (one from the bedroom and one from the back porch) we decided that it would be best if we removed the extra door and only had one, so David took the door down and the door facings. We have to get things all lined out for the sheetrock person to come this week.

I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
