Me gyproc queen!

Well, don't believe everything you read. Yes, I'm patching up some gyproc but following Vic's lead is no easy feat. He makes it look pretty easy.

Actually, my official title this week is Stucco Girl. I'm to fix up the ceiling patches where stucco went missing when the old valances located above the windows were taken down.

Vic was Cable Guy and Bonnie was his assistant today. They relocated my exsisting cable line to another wall so I could stop tripping over the ever annoying cord. Digging into still exsisting plywood floors proved to be a very cool way to do just that!

Jeremy even snuck in for a few to check on Vic.

Lots of dust kicked up today. That may be because I got tired of hand sanding my crappy gyproc patching so I plugged in my hand sander thing instead. Yikes... snow inside a house. Interesting concept. I'll be eating that stuff forever I think. Let me put it this way. I was in front of the picture window sanding a patch of ceiling and cody was in front of the tv mere feet away from me and I lost sight of him. Once the swirling fog somewhat cleared, he slowly reappeared with his hands all over his face. Can't figure out why...

But we are moving along! After the ceilings, then it's onto painting all the upstairs walls! Already!! I love this stuff. I wish I could take a few months off work and just play on the house. That would be crazy delirious kinda fun.

It seems like it takes me forever to get something started on the house. So many things pulling me away at the same time. But once I'm plugged in, try and stop me!

There have been a series of shorter evening visits by Pete, Vic, and Rich, all in an effort to get things done. I sure appreciate how everyone working together is making such a big difference. Today I glanced at my new wall switch plates and had to smile. Something so 'normal' is so so beautiful!

Thanks everyone, for making everything come together, a day at a time.
