half caff

The week gets calmer as our Boulder, now Ukrainian guest departs today, along with the rest of my family bound for Seattle. I'll have a few tranquil days before the typical 22 month-old antics resume. I'll get some miles into my legs... that's the plan anyway. Another goal is to chuck in the skylights before they return as a surprise. The problem I have is that it gets harder and harder to impress Amy as I continually complete tasks in less time than one usually might take. If I manage to install some drywall then THAT will be impressive given I have no car available. Bike+Trailer+4'x8' sheet of drywall... I'm always up for a challenge but ... actually it wouldn't be that hard as I visualize how it would work. I'm not ready for the drywall phase anyway so while it would be fun to watch Amy's face, it would introduce difficulty working in such a cramped space. That reminds me, I need to talk to a plumber.

Since you wrote it down, you gotta get the sheetrock in. I can't wait to see the skylights. - Chris
