Day 16: The clock never stops
Today I drove up to Maine to drop off my dog with my youngest daughter and her children. While I was away, the power fans were heavy at work for there was a lot of sanding of the crown and sanding of all the patches of the ceiling. Then the ceiling and crown molding were primed. These are the days of the renovation that you REALLY appreciate the power fans and barricades! The crown molding has a new coat of trim paint…yippee!
I prepared the crock-pot again before I left. I put a meat and couple of veggies in. The slow cook was not too slow, for it seemed over cooked when I arrived home much later in the evening. So the meal tonight was not so good….ugh. But the positive was that two new baby goats were born at my daughter’s farm today that I was able to see—so cute!
I was able to break Brett free for the afternoon and he finished sanding, caulking, and priming the crown molding. Wendy and I both went our separate ways and we were gone all day, I returned home just after 8pm and the last thing I wanted to do was break out the tools and work in the kitchen. But I feel like a failure if I don’t accomplish ‘something’. At least this is one emotion that our clients shouldn’t have to experience.
With Wendy needing for me to get some office paperwork done, clients looking for proposals, our employees waiting for their work instructions... there just aren’t enough hours in the day. The kitchen is going to need to take a backseat. Oh no!!! Is this how my home projects don’t get accomplished in a timely fashion? I am sensing a pattern. CRAP! A renewed push will be in order once we return from Miami.
Wendy didn’t get home until 9:30 so dinner was a ‘eat what you can find’ kind of night. This is starting to get old. I can’t remember what having a kitchen was like…
