Good morning.

Day two in a row of sleeping in past 9AM. I woke to find my wife was already up and well into the day, hanging Christmas lights. I should feel guilty, but...:rolleyes:

Thanks. Yes, it's a heat bulb. We rarely use it. My wife prefers to have a portable space heater that up until now had to be placed on the countertop.

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's going to be a quiet one here. My wife is making a mini turkey for me to take over to Justin. Due to COVID we can't visit today so I'm going to have to pass it to his...

I got the toilet hooked up and started putting the door trim back up. The color palette is starting to grow on me.

Good morning,

I'm feeling run down today after hauling the toilet and vanity upstairs. My wife helped but you know how it is taking things upstairs. I wasn't going to have my wife below a 200...

Good morning,

Our house is a wreck, but the tile floors are done in my wife's bathroom. I can't rest on my laurels though. I kinda sorta promised to put the toilet back in.

Good morning,

Nope. Just Monday. At least we get Thursday "off" - until the kitchen is a wreck and we have to clean up the messes the home chefs have made. Luckily, the only football game I'm...

We're still seeing lots of assignments not being turned in, so my wife took away his personal laptop and scheduled an IEP with the principle next Wednesday. The child is not happy. It's not fair,...

Our county went from "moderate risk" to "high risk" for COVID diagnosis rates this week after we had a couple of days of over 500 diagnoses. In our school districts, we would get reports almost daily...

Good morning.

My wife is moaning that her bathroom isn't done and that her knees hurt from bicycling - which was weeks ago. I'm holding my tongue but trying to find a way to recruit her to help...

My wife wants one too but I'm resisting because there is just no room...

It's a little warmer here. Since it doesn't look like going out in public is an even worse idea and the tile cutting and mortar mixing is all done I can clear out the garage. I...

Good morning,

It's slightly warmer and dryer today. Schooling for my 13yo has gone virtual until December 8th. We're waiting to see if our 16yo's autism school will follow suit.

We had a little snow shower. Nothing's laid but it's not a good day for raking leaves or working in the driveway. It's not supposed to get over 40 and with the precipitation I don't...

It was bound to happen: one tile didn't set. It's best that it happened before I laid the grout. The "fix" is to actually break the tile and without grout connecting the tiles and it being so big if...

I worked until about 9pm last night finishing laying the tile. My hands and back hurt - mostly because of working in some tight spaces. I'm sure there's lippage somewhere but I'll need to kick out...

Good morning,

That trick you told me about remixing the thinset paid off well, GBDad. I was able to finish laying the tile using my last bag of mortar. I'm paying the price today though so I did...

I'm building up my nerve. The weather is cooler but clear so I'm going to go for a quick walk to get the cobwebs blown out from between my ears then get the tile saw set up.

I appreciate that. I'm halfway through though, so I'm loathe to switch the game plan at this point. I just don't want to have to take a crowbar and chisel to what I've done.

Will it be terrific? Will it be stupendous? Will it be "yuge?"
