Hi Pubski. Life is good, and I am good.

On Sunday I tore all the crappy 1970's wood paneling off the walls of my bedroom/man cave downstairs, and found very little insulation between the dingy wood panels and the concrete house foundation.

So I tore it all out, and bought new insulation and wood tongue-in-groove flooring to put up on the walls. "Honey Oak" colored. Gonna be really pretty. I also got to buy a pancake compressor and set of air-powered tools, so I can get the job done quickly and easily.

That was Sunday.

Monday I got the supplies.

Tuesday I had a team dinner after work, with the rest of the team who are in from out of town. No remodeling got done.

Last night I started work, but then had to help my wife with a couple of projects. No remodeling got done.

Tonight I have my weekly dinner with my dad. No remodeling will get done.

Tomorrow night is my company Christmas party. No remodeling will get done.

Saturday I have about an hour of time, between three other commitments. No remodeling will get done.

Sunday I have our monthly rugby fan club get-together, and then am going to see the Mongolian heavy metal band, Tengger Calvary with kleinbl00 and another friend.

Monday I have a training in the evening. No remodeling will get done.

Tuesday I may have time.

Last night the temperature dropped into the 20's.

I may not have planned this project out very well. x-(

But hey... when I get to it, I get to play with new tools! Woo!

When spring time rolls around I should be about 9 months behind on my backyard project.

It's not like nothings gotten done, I've got a new covered deck, a new fence and removed a big dying tree.

These projects always take way more time than you wish they did but it's damn satisfying when you get them done.
