Catching Up

Got to having so much fun catching up on all the stuff we couldn't get to over dial-up, we forgot to blog. Not much to report anyway, other than more of what we've been reporting for the last few months. Neither of us has a paying job yet, although hints and vague "maybe's" continue to trickle in. As much as I hate to think about it, we may end up being here for the winter and that nasty snow stuff ya'll seem to enjoy so much. Other than that, we continue to plug away on the basement project. The last of the drywall is painted as of a couple hours ago. We still have the block walls that have been prep'ed and primed, but not painted yet, but those will go pretty fast once we get at it. All our stuff is blocking the way right now, so that will wait until everything else is done. In the meantime, we will finish up insulating one small area, then that will get primed and painted, then we start hanging doors and trimming out windows. That will likely keep us busy for the rest of the time we are here.

One of the things I've been busy with that's not basement related, is uploading all the photos we've taken over the last three months to our Flickr page:

Pictures from a couple of Ashton's football games.
A few of Debbie's mom's yard.
Some pictures of my parents yard.
The annual Frost reunion.
Dave's birthday cake (Dave managed to avoid the camera).
Birch Run Homecoming.
Fall colors around Birch Run.
Fall colors around northern Michigan.
And last but not least, photos of the progress on the basement project.

At a glance, here is a "before" picture which was actually after we had taken down the old paneling, filled a 30-yard dumpster, and sprayed, scrubbed and squeegee'ed the floor:


and this is the same area of the basement now:



So, progress of a sorts.

I have a bunch of stuff to link to, but I'll put it into a separate post to make it easy on those who would rather skip the ranting.
