Demolition Derby

My parents arrived yesterday to take their vacation by helping us fix up, paint, prepare and move into our new house. Or, now, paint and rent the other unit. Or something.

Today, while I was at work, Tessa and my father removed a couple of walls from the kitchen. The reasoning was it is better to do that now than later, although discovering unexpected big pipes complicates matters a little. But the kitchen is much bigger.

We also discovered that, while they claimed to have removed the wallpaper... they had not, not in the back room (my room) nor the kitchen. Just painted over it. *Sigh*

Lots of work, but worth it. We are getting a lot of interest in the apartment. And this will be fun for me for a while, I expect. There is a nice feeling to doing work on stuff you own (or quasi-own).

    Thought of the day: how long will it be before 9-11 is turned into a formal or informal holiday, in the sense of "Happy September 11th"?
