drywall

so, while my parents are on spring break in florida with all the whoozies and whatsits, we are sleeping in their wonderfully plumbed house. . . as ours is in a bit of a disarray, no plumbing and currently, no floor at all in the bathroom. I am spending the week with josh and we are building a new floor, putting in a new toilet and new sink, and light fixtures. I have drywalled a tiny closet, having the 'mud' on my pants forever will help me remember my role in this project...
i have realized that it is not quite a match for me, this level of 'do it yourself'... i would LOVE to make my own curtains, I'm not so certain of the need to measure something 18 times before cutting and the wild investigative journey of pulling up flooring in a hundred year old house. We were going to demolish the tile, but what was underneath caused Josh to go get his mask and to lose his normally chipper disposition... so we stopped with the whole 'its probably asbestos' thing... and the 'rebuilding' of the floor began.
ANYHOW. it is good to know i will not be a contractor in my future. one down...
ask me tomorrow if I want to be a plumber...

Are you kidding me? Are you really doing this? I am terribly impressed. Do you feel like you are learning stuff? Is it fun? Please show pictures. I am really proud of you. I hope this gives you a sense of coolness, because I think you are wicked cool.
