Safety First

I couldn’t get a sense of anything else around this sign, that might warrant a safety reminder. It just seemed to have been planted in the middle of nowhere, akin to a sign that someone might put next to the sidewalk that says “Eat Your Vegetables.”

Nothing Found

When I tried to use the camera itself, something was off – as it wasn’t quite working properly. I got it to beep a few times, but mostly it seemed to tell me there was nothing on any of the memory cards.

Last Plywood and Visqueen in the Back Basement

The whole Visqueen process was way, way easier than I thought it would be. Though it took a while for us to get the plywood installed officially, the Visqueen part went by super quick.

I’m now much less daunted about applying Visqueen and dry wall across the entire basement. I think with a full day, Liz and I could likely power through the rest of the basement.

The Big Storage Unit Move

Today was our big move, getting lots of our boxed items transferred from our second floor over to a storage unit. Our goal is clear out our second floor as much as we possibly can, so that we can start to do more significant work on the floor and walls in the master bedroom, guest bedroom, and (eventually) our front office.

The Night Before the Storage Unit Move

Tomorrow morning, we have a crew of movers coming over to relocate all our boxes into a storage unit.

At work lately, I still feel like I’m trying to get my sea legs. Some days are better than others, but of late work has taken the larger part of my hours. If the blog goes unattended for a few days, that’d be the reason.

Basement Supply Run

Given how sick I’ve been, these last few days – I haven’t had time to go back and finish up the plywood in the back basement. As soon as that’s done, we’ll have drywall to work with – and can hopefully finish up that back area.

Double Macbooks

I’m really digging my newer Macbook Pro, particularly given how much lighter it is. The Touch Bar is… ok. I absolutely love the ability use Touch ID, but still miss the ESC key from time to time, along with the other function keys. It’s just not the same.

Sick Day and Evening

The day started off with a stuffy nose, which possibly could have been due to allergies. By mid-afternoon, I was sniffling non-stop, and was pretty convinced I had caught the bug that’s been going around.
