I did it! I finished the first half of the basement ceiling and it looks darn good. Heather went out for dinner with her playgroup (girl’s night out) so Ethan and I hung out for some guy time (hockey, of course. Sens vs Blues…I love DirecTV CenterIce!) We had some fun playing in the basement while watching the game and then he tuckered out. I had him in bed and asleep by 9:30 and I went to work on the ceiling.
I only had two rows left, but I needed to cut a lot of tiles to fit around the fireplace. Only screwed up once, needed some trimming, but finally got it all done around 12:30…yes, AM…ouch. I just couldn’t stop when I was so close to completion.
My tail is dragging today, but I’m still pumped to have completed a big project. Of course the other half of the basement is calling to me with its exposed joists, pipes, wires, and dangling bare bulbs. I plan to get started this weekend.
