School was keeping me really busy until about a week ago. I was clearly sleep deprived when I decided I would use the three week break until summer classes to refinish our basement. In the last couple of weeks we've ripped out carpet, ripped out built-in speakers and a built in entertainment center, patched drywall and installed an outlet. Tommorow will be priming and painting walls, followed by painting the ceiling in anticipation of new carpet that should be installed soon. Here are a few lunch notes from the last couple of months.Did I mention we had an earthquake here?
