Friday Aug 18th –
The mom and sis were town bound, meaning I was left on little person duty for a while 😏😜
After stuffing them with butter and salt covered noodles, the miniest one went for a nap and I decided to be the awesome aunt and allow a movie for the less mini one 😜
Such a win win situation, she thinks I’m nice for letting her see a movie and I got quiet time to read/relax beside her 😏👍🏻
The guys were at our place, mudding and sanding away (where else would they be 💁🏻) but they returned when the mom and sister did, since they’d brought back Chinese food for lunch🍲
The afternoon brought Bob with it as well, as he had returned from work to spend the weekend with the fam ☺️
Saturday Aug 19th –
Mike and I got up and enjoyed coffee and stroopwafels (which are now a daily food item since our basement if full of them😉).
After Uncle Mike read a couple of books to the early rising Little, we left at 8:30 and began the process of de-dusting the house, which we knew would be no small feat 😬
Reinforcements came around 11:00 and the dust started flying.
Sanding rough spots, walls and ceilings brushed off, floors swept, vacuumed and mopped, windows, shower and plug-ins taped off and sprayer prepared.
It was a busy few hours but come 1:30, the first coat of primer was covering our upstairs and main level 👍🏻💯
Mom, Dad and the sprouts had come over somewhere in the midst of it all and Bob the logger took care of the large, drooping branch that was taking up a large chunk of the kitchen windows view 😏
Bon Bon and the sprouts assisted in loading up the remains 😉
Lunch was chicken strips, which some made into burgers and then a large pot of recovery coffee was brewed.
Mike had to go into town for supplies and the bro and I went over to the house to work on patching the last of the nicks and dents that the primer had made visible.
Finally after that, was I allowed to go home and shower and once again I had brown hair and not premature grey 😜
I planted up the mini pot I had made for Alaina, which she painted for herself, though I approve of the colors she picked 😉
The sister had made a fabulous turtle cheesecake which we all, happily dug into that evening.
