It's been a hard days night . . .

Well, I feel the need to clarify and then apologize. Clearly I had no idea how bad things could get when I ranted about sawdust over a month ago, but now I know. And honey, it ain't a pretty picture!!! Sawdust don't got nothing on insulation! I do believe that stuff is of the devil, sent straight from the HOT PLACE!
We've kicked the "remodel" project into high gear and have been at the house as much as possible including weekends. My body truly aches in places that are completely unimaginable. But with the aches and pains comes a sense of pride and accomplishment. It is getting done and WE are the ones doing it. Plumbing and electrical have been completed and today the last of the insulation was reinstalled. Let me tell you that stuff is nasty. After taking an extra long shower, I still feel as though I have tiny shards of glass stuck in my face, hands, arms and neck. It's even oozing out from my eyeballs, which are still burning 9 hours later. The sheet rock should be going up the middle of next week. I'm hoping to get some sort of painting done before us 4 girls take off for the "big city", even if it is just primer. We'll see though.
Well, I'm off - I should be sleeping like a log (or was that dog?).

Let me save you from a mistake I made, the insulation is not cotton candy....it does not taste good

Thanks for looking out for me! I think all the dead ant carcasses and mouse poop encrusted on the insulation saved me from wanting to actually put it in my mouth to test the whole cotton candy theory.
