If These Walls Could Talk

We have walls!!  The "George Team" put up the sheetrock yesterday (very quickly, I might add) and today they are putting up the joint compound.  They will do three coats of mud, over the next few days, then sand.  After that we just need to wait for the window and door to arrive.  The floor guy is coming this afternoon to see how much patching he'll have to do.  Of course, there's the gap where the knee wall used to be, and the place where the pantry used to be.  When the floor is done, it's just a matter of waiting for the cabinets.  I bought the sink the other day, and need to go pay for my granite slab.  Tile backsplash is the very last thing to think about, but I already have some ideas.

 I'm learning so much about home building and remodeling, just watching them at work.  It's amazing how all the details seem to fall into place.

We had a successful shopping trip to get dress shoes, belts, socks, etc. for the big "Dress Uniform Day" today.  Now that Quentin's in high school he has to wear a blazer and a tie, and looks very handsome!  Rats, should have taken pictures but I was in a sleep deprived state this morning.  David got in from Minnesota after 11, and of course it took him a couple of hours to wind down.  He's been gone since last Thursday, so it's good to have him home!
