A Day of Service

Today was the National Day of Service and I would like to heartily thank my parents {we’re basically a nonprofit, after all}. The three of us had off and spent the ENTIRE day working on house stuff.

Dad & I worked on getting the electric & plumbing ran for our dishwasher {coming tomorrow!}. If you looked at my before and after pics, you’d think it took us 15 minutes but there was so much behind the scenes drywall work that had to be done sorting out the ridiculous wiring we found. Like this tiny gauge wire used as a jumper for the ground –

“Oy” is pretty much the only way to describe it. It’s now up to code, not a fire-hazard, and – MOST IMPORTANTLY – ready for a dishwasher. Yay!

Mom helped get our closet & bedroom organized, then started hemming our curtains.

She’s so good at organizing & sewing and actually really enjoys it {thankfully!}. Everything looks 8 million times better. Walking into the bedroom this evening was like walking into a real home! What a boost.

I’m exhausted, I’m sure they are too but we GOT.SO.MUCH.DONE. Tomorrows going to be a busy day at work, so it’ll be another late post.

We’re getting there, folks. We are getting there. Progress is being made.

So much to blog about. Stay tuned.

  1. I think I need a “Day of Service” every week just to keep from getting buried in all of the house projects. I’m voting for eight day weeks! I may even do my laundry then.

    Wow! A lot accomplished in a short day (that patch wire looks like telephone wire. It’s so thin I almost missed it) ! Great job!
