My house is so quiet!

Well, it's been a very eventful week! The Souza's came up from Tennessee to help us get the basement ready for Nana Sue. Dan and Peter worked non-stop to get the basement ready, but I'm afraid, I totally underestimated the amount of work involved in this endeavor. Dan says the only part of his body that doesn't hurt is his eyelids.

PopPop and Mir came down from Pennsylvania for a few days to help. While we got a LOT done, we are by no means finished. Nana Sue comes in 4 weeks. I'm hoping we'll be ready.

We still need to finish tiling the shower and bathroom, set the toilet and vanity, install the shower head and sink faucets, finish mudding and taping the drywall, wire and install the stair well light. Install the utility sink, connect the dryer vent, prime and paint the walls and stairwell, add the closet fixtures , hang 2 regular doors, one bi-fold door, and one accordion door, install 2 door knobs, paint the security grill, assemble the shelving for the storage area, nail up the shoe molding, fix the stair railing and shampoo the carpeting. There's probably a few tasks I've forgotten.

Then we get to go to Tennessee and pack up Nana Sue and move her up.

(And somewhere in there, I need to go to my family reunion in Illinois)

I think I'm going to bed now... I'm tired... :)
