all work and no play makes for a dull blog

Well, it's been over two weeks since my last post. What's been happening? Well, mostly a lot of work around the house and a lot of work at the job. I took a couple of extra days off to make it a five day labor day weekend... and proceeded to spend most of it laboring around the house.

I finished up Brian and Jason's new room to the point where that have now moved partially in. We still need to get a new carpet in there, so I haven't moved most of their stuff into the new room yet. But, we are letting them sleep together in the spare double bed we have in that room until such time as we get a chance to get another twin bed (we already have one in storage)

Dad came up and helped put in a new sliding glass door in our family room. Jason and Brian are so happy that they can open and close the door to get out of the house there now. The mostrosity of a door that was in there before won't be missed - and neither will the cold draft we felt all winter long.

And Mike and the guys from DBS have been making great progress finishing our basement. They are just about complete - just some final touches next week and they should be done.

Mostly I've been painting - painting Brian and Jason's new room, painting pantry doors, painting the trim around the new door in the family room, and of, course, painting the basement...

Of course, I did have some help...

Meantime, there are only eight days left until the walk. Team Teddy Bear has managed to raise over $3600. Great job, team! The Hudson Valley Walk for PKD as a whole is now over $38,000. It's not too late to make a donation, so please feel free to head on over and support the cause.
