Not Cute: sharing his cold today.
But anyways - despite my fever, stuffy nose and insane tiredness, life must go on. And go on it did! Tommy has been making up for my lack of energy with a double dose of his own. This last week he cranked out the rest of the wall boards for Jack's bedroom remodel and *drumroll please* he installed carpet this morning! He sent me to the hardware store bright and early to rent a carpet stretcher while he was putting down tack strips and carpet padding. By 11 am he was done!
The room isn't completely finished - we still need to add baseboards and trim around the window and door. But it's come a long ways from a room with no insulation, cracked plaster walls, no outlets and a pull cord for one lonely ceiling light.
We have multiple outlets now! A lightswitch! Soft flooring! So exciting :) We removed the closet to make more space (it's about 9 x 14 now) and I have no idea where I'm going to hide everything I had stuffed in there. Time to throw some crap out!
Anywhoo... I should go attack the monstrous pile of dishes now, or maybe convince Jack to watch a movie with me on the couch. We'll see.
