This is what it looked like around here yesterday. Actually this is what its looked like since Friday afternoon. I haven't made dinner since a big pot of minestrone before Thanksgiving. I rather enjoy the freedom of not having to make dinner. I had announced I wouldn't be worrying about this at the get-go of the project. In fact yesterday I asked John what was for dinner when he called. That felt good. That is what he asks me everyday. It is the #1 most annoying question you can ask me.
In 3 1/2 days this is as far as I've gotten. That's working steadily 8-12 hours. Yesterday was particularly fun because I stood on that counter all day. The slope of the ceiling caused me to have to bend my head most of the time and my elbow kept hitting that other thing on my right. Grrrr. Anyway the hard part (so I think) is over. I WILL be done by Saturday. (John is not betting on it.) It looks small with me standing there but it looks big when I stand on the ground and calculate how much more time it will take. It FEELS big to the blister forming right below my thumb from the tile nippers.
