Oh and yes they sneaked in some of my leftover birthday cake! LOL
Yes....the basement was a bit messy again but they were down there most of the day.
They used tables, fitted sheets, sheets and blankets! :-)
Their favorite animals of course were also there! I did pack emergency bags for all of us just in case.
We found this cot for Kathleen at a yard sale for $3.00! It has been one of our best investments! It's great when we travel too!
Hayley thought it was pretty cool to put her computer in the cubby of the shelving.
I am just very thankful we made it through and my family and friends are safe. My heart goes out to all facing the devastation and destruction.
Since it was still rainy and windy today, Jerry decided to start putting the insulation in our attic. We've lived here for 6 years and have been wanting to do this to save on heating/cooling costs. Our attic is ready to be finished. We came across brand new insulation at a yard sale and the guy sold several rolls to us for $120.00 You can't beat that! Jerry is definitely a handyman/jack of all trades. Which really comes in handy saving $$.
Here's some pics of the before and some afters of the installation.
Can't forget the tool container with just some of the things he needed. Yet he was still running back and forth for more!
The yellow in the back is for interior walls that was given to us, the pink is the new we were installing.
Just overlook our items in storage :-) LOL
If installing yourself be sure to keep a few things in mind:
1) Wear a jumpsuit to protect skin
2) Wear a face mask!!
3) Properly ventilate the area you are working in
4) If you have gloves, use them!
We did our house in NC years ago and did the recycled blown insulation. That stuff is great! Expensive but worth it if you can afford it. We have remodeled many houses/things, lol. I'll have to add those posts sometime.
Jerry getting ready to start....
I would also recommend eye protection as well. One time I went up to take him coffee and get these pics. and I couldn't even breathe! Insulation is not a home improvement area I take part in. :-)
So we're not completely done, but we do have big plans! I'll keep you posted as we go along.
Now I have a question for you....especially my gardeners out there....WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THIS BUG?????
As you can see they are quite happy in my garden!
We don't like using chemical solutions....anyone know how we can get rid of them??
So after a long day of working upstairs and the girls watched t.v. and played while I reorganized things, did laundry and prepared their things for school.....Jerry fired up the grill for dinner.
Now there's a story to this grill.....
We found it at a yard sale for $90.00. Gotta love those yard sales! :-)
Of and it was brand new too! The only thing was it was missing a few knobs, which we ordered. Why he didn't put them all on yet I'm not sure? LOL But needless to say...he loves his new grill.
Have a great evening!!
