Went over to Steph and the Old Man’s today to help them put together the last of their shelves down in the basement. Learned how to properly use a power drill. They’ve been remodeling their bathroom all week, and using my shower while theirs is out of commission. Their bathroom looks like a real Oakwood bathroom now! Not a pink-tiled monstrosity from the 1940s! It’s a miracle. Like Steph said, it looks like something out of a Pottery Barn catalogue.
It’s been fun to help them out with the occasional thing around the house, whether it’s building shelves or moving furniture or painting doors. It’s a taste of what it’ll look like if I decide to buy my own 1940s fixer-upper (tho I suspect mine would be in the 90-100K range and not the 120-130K range. Yes, I’m talking house prices. This is Ohio. House prices are the only advantage to living here).
I had some other things to say, but they popped right out of my head. Um.
So I guess I’m done.
