Work week - Qualified Perceptions

Work week
Last night, harrock and I took the carpet out of the entry hall in the new house. tirinian helped a little, but there's only so much grunge work one can ask of someone wearing a suit.

Most of the wood looks good. The front door is a little ratty - I think there were issues with rain coming under the door, soaking into the draft-blocking-snake and from thence into the carpet by the door. Probably better to deal with now (and get a taller door, perhaps) than to have not noticed, and left it to molder. I think it'll look okay to have the entry way uncarpeted and the living room carpeted, though we may have to have ilhander over for an official consult.

However, today I'm low-grade sore all over, especially in the plier-crunching muscles in my hand. Ah well - if I alternate work days and play days, perhaps it will go okay.

I've been playing phone tag loop with a contractor (at least he called back! Even if it was my work number at 8pm, I find that promising...) - I think I'll be a little less fretful if the contractor-requiring work can either be nailed down and scheduled, or we determine that one can't actually get a contractor inside of a month. :)

This is just the sort of thing that I want to be roped into!

Tonight and tomorrow night will likely involve Steam Cleaning and Cabinet Inside Painting and Shelf-Papering, if you want to be roped into those. :)

(And pondering whether doing the lazy thing and touching up chipped paint on sills is sufficient)
