Usually the weekends fly by, but this weekend has felt a week long. Perhaps because we crammed so much house-related work into such a short span of time ...
Friday night, I met Josh up at the house, and we tore out all the old interior doors, door jams, and framing. They were so disgusting. Most of the doors had holes kicked in them and were filthy. The jams were worn down and barely functioning. Jackie and PJ met us up at the house in the evening, and we managed to hang two of the four doors. We decided to call it quits about 2am.
Saturday morning, I judged a moot court competition and then met Josh and co. up at the house. The paint crew started, and by the time I got there around noon, they had stripped out all the popcorn ceilings and repaired some of the holes in the walls! With the help of Frank, our new friend and handyman, we finished with the rest of the doors. Jackie, PJ, Josh, and I grabbed a bite to eat at Josh's favorite chain restaurant close-by and then headed back to our apartment. I was so exhausted last night, I crashed at 10pm!
I had planned on working this morning, but I seem to have caught whatever ugly bug is floating around. So, I ended up sleeping in, hoping I can shake it before the week starts. My dad very graciously offered to buy us some appliances for the new pad, so we quickly met up with him to pick out what we liked and then grabbed some dinner.
Jackie was smart and brought her camera along this weekend, and I will post pics of the house progress as soon as she emails them to me. For now, I think I am going to hit the sack and try and shake this bug before the week starts!
