Moving Lights, Cleanup

Today, I felt better – but I could still tell I was a bit off. That said, I did some small bit of work around the house. While Bob was working on setting up a furnace on our second floor, I did a bit of light demo, cleaned up a lot of trash around the house, and relocated the lights from the bedroom to the hallway.

Jimmy John’s, Round 2

Found another example of my name misspelled, from over the weekend. The funny thing is that for very long while now, I’ve been ordering JJ’s exclusively via their mobile app. And for each sandwich that I have saved, I have the name of the person added as well.

A Not Quick Sick Day, Part 2

I could feel myself getting less useful, the longer I sat. And though there’s a part of me that feels like I should still be working, I knew I couldn’t work another full day. So I climbed in bed, put on a movie, and napped off and on.

A Not Quite Sick Day

Stayed home today because I started to get sick at work yesterday… and it just got progressively worse and worse. My goal was to attend a few meetings in the morning remotely, then take a sick day.

Monitors Everywhere

More Drywall

At the close of the day, I realized I had more work to do – and continued cleaning out the closet area (and filling in the gaps in the wall with foam). Though to my credit, I did decide to use gloves this time. He can be taught!

Street Concrete Work

Yesterday, right as Bob was here with a truck full of drywall… wouldn’t you know it, the crew was just starting to pour the cement for our driveway apron. We had scheduled some help with Dolly, and had two helpers scheduled for the morning.

Insulating the Stairway Walls, Continued

Got another good house night in today, after work. With some serious cold temps coming soon, I wanted to get more insulation on the walls by the stairs (every little bit helps). The main challenge here is that a scaffold is required, to be able to reach the high angle of the ceiling, near the base of the stairs.

Insulating the Stairway Walls

Put some time in after work, and threw in some Great Stuff foam along the stairway walls. I had to get the scaffold in place to reach everywhere, but I’ve found I’ve gotten much faster with the setup and breakdown of that guy.
