We've been going through the basement - cleaning out accumulated 'stuff'. After all, we've been in this house for more than 20 years - and we're all pack rats.
I had no idea I has so much computer stuff down there. Stuff that now is totally useless. Like a Hayes 14.4 Modem. Fer reals.
There was a box of Borland Paradox. And the original Microsoft Office. And a remnant from when I used to do databases - Clarion Professional Developer.
Grannie's new room is coming along apace. The wall is framed out for the new door and soon the dining room will be her bedroom. Annie finds out, today, when Grannie comes home.
A number of years ago, we had someone finish our basement. Yesterday, As Mark and I were taking down some ceiling tiles in order to figure out how to move a vent, we discovered some REALLY shoddy wiring work which was hidden by the ceiling tiles the contractor installed. Which just goes to show you - you can't trust people to work without supervision - sometimes. I hate to think what could have happened if we had tried to hang a fixture, for example, from that ceiling.
I hope everyone survived the weekend with all extremities intact. I did. Now, if I could just find my sanity.
