No more home improvement. Ever. Again. (that's a total lie)
We got a new furnace and water heater installed today. I went 2 days without hot water. One of those days (yesterday) was filled with ripping out old drywall, hanging new drywall, installing new flooring, and lots and lots of joint compound. 4 hours of sleep last night. The next day was filled with early waking, supervising, problem solving, and no sleep. It's 11pm. Why am I still awake? Well, the plumber just left 30 minutes ago and I refuse to sleep without a hot shower. 10 more minutes.
We've agreed to a one month moratorium on home improvement. This will be after we finish painting so we can reinstall the washing machine, that is. I can only let it sit in my kitchen for so long.
