V also took down the last wall in the basement today! Hurrah!!!! Maybe we'll have to break out that bottle of sparkling wine we have in the fridge. Unfortunately (or fortunately), with the storm we had last night (LOTS of rain and wind) we discovered that we still have a few leaks in the basement that we haven't managed to stop. So that means no framing in that side of the basement until we figure that out. At least it's on the opposite side of the basement from where J14's room will be. That is the room we will frame/finish first so she will have a place to live.
My parents are coming up Saturday to help us again. My Dad will help V run the gas line for my new range and my Mom will stay at our 'town house' and help J14 with her sewing project for school. That frees me up to work on other things. I need to get a few more boxes packed to take out- I'm running out of the 'easy' stuff- although there are always books. We have LOTS of books.
And fifteen years ago today, V did something that caused the closing and evacuation of the federal reserve bank in Richmond, VA. While working on an archaeological dig at the Tredegar Iron Works, he discovered what they thought was an unexploded civil war cannon ball. The bomb squad was called and the area evacuated. It turned out that the round had been spiked long ago but the next day we had our own little bombshell.
After he got home from the events of the day, he had several drinks to calm himself down. The next morning- I got up to make coffee and had my water break. He refused to take me to the hospital until he had some coffee in him. But later that day, our lovely daughter was born. One bombshell on Saturday that was a dud and one on Sunday that has been going off ever since.
So, there will be a name change tomorrow. J14 will become J15. Wow- it seems like just yesterday. I'd better go bake a cake.
