Since it is a holiday, Columbus Day. Who decided to go in and who decided not to?

Nothing to do with the day, but I'm home because drywallers are hanging today.

Promised a client I would come in so I could be there while the countertop was getting templated in case there were questions. Was there for an hour and half of it was blabbing to her.

It's Canadian Thanksgiving. I'm pulling a half day, just some insulation and sound board. Maybe frame in a closet.

Wife's sick, so daddy daycare today. Otherwise I'd be battling it out with horse hair plaster and lathe.

Working on designs and bids.

Later today, in honor of Columbus, I intend to walk into someone else's house, discover it and make it my own. I sure hope they're neater than I am.

I'm not only working, I'm pissed the mail hasn't come yet. I've got a NetFlix movie that needs picking up.

Good Luck
