A Memorable Day!!

How was your Memorial Weekend?? I think ours should be renamed as our Memorable Day/ Weekend. Nothing overly interesting, just busy. Busy Stuff and the usual...

Running errands all day Saturday; Attending Sunday Service and then to my Mom's for lunch afterwards; Monday - busily trying to finish settling the house.

We were trying to finish out the 3rd bedroom for this coming weekend when Grandma Susie comes to town, for Caleb's second birthday. (She'll be here for a few days!)

So, we asked my brother, Justin, who is a trim carpenter, to come on over in the morning (we fed him breakfast) to "help me" with hanging several items -along with a few other things-throughout the house while Scott would work on setting up a bunk bed (hand built by my Dad for my sister and I), that we inherited, for our (3rd bedroom/sewing/office) spare room. We also had HUGE intentions to sort through the remaining boxes and take some to the attic, and "rearrange" the room enough so that it would start to resemble a sewing/guest room.

You see, little did we know that by tackling this "simple project", in setting up a bunk bed first thing in the morning (a long story but which basically took all morning), would, later, serve us in the day for the other project that was looming large. That being to install 3 different air conditioner's. Ugh! Poor Scott. Thankfully we just happened to buy a table saw from the friends who used to live here, and it just so was that for some reason the pieces that we inherited with the bunk bed were not correct or not all were given, or we don't know.... but what appeared to be the bottom frame/support was not correct and so that needed to get sawed down to fit in order to support the mattress. That being said, it was enough wood cut off to create shims and other supports for the 3 different air conditioners and their issues in and around the windows.
And believe me, there were issues!!

At the end of the day, it really felt good to have things, out of boxes, "up on walls" and more in order, all the while I was basically running the washer all day and loving the wash line, baking and doing other normal household stuff. We had the best, weather, too!!

I think we finally ended up eating dinner, around 8pm. Needless to say, we were all pooped. But Grandma's got a room ready and waiting...

What a Memorable Day!!
