Well I said I would try to keep enough strength to get on here and let you know I didn’t kill myself…….. I didn’t, but I sure took a whoopin‘. WOW…… I’m trying to stick to the mantra, “Don’t let the old man in” ….. but after today I thought about it for a little bit. Holy Toledo……. I didn’t realize just how far and badly out of shape I am. Today erased any questions……. It’s been a hot minute since I did this kind of work and frankly, would like to think I won’t ever have to do it again….. but that is letting the old man in….. and I ain’t ready for that yet. So I’m gonna get me a hot shower to hopefully ease the throbbing in my back and then stretch out on the couch and/or bed and try to rest up for tomorrow. For reasons entirely to lengthy to go into here, I decided not to take up the old tile. A decision that I feel got better with every tile I laid. Had a host of other issues trying to get the job started. I should have known and expected that- but I was trying to be hopeful. Bottom line…. we have a brand new floor in our kitchen now. Tomorrow I’m gonna do the grout and Friday I should be able to put the appliances back in. For now though…… I have kept the old man at bay one more day….. tomorrow is another (hopefully easier) day.
I did find out we have a Wine Pairing scheduled for tomorrow evening and the boss would like me to shoot it…. so hopefully I’ll get the floor grouted early enough to be able to get a shower and get on the boat for the Wine cruise. At least it is out on our end of the island this time, so we should have a spectacular sunset for it.
Good Night Y’all . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Thankx for stopping in~!
