|Happy Valentine's Day|
This is one of those times I wish my dad was younger and in better health. He was quite the handyman when he was younger. I remember him putting in the new addition to our home in New York in the mid 70's - 1200 sq. feet (plus the foundation which he dug himself) consisting of new bedrooms and a bathroom for us! Growing up in an Italian family back then you learn a few things so I am looking forward to laying some new tiles and helping out with the drywall (does that sound insane???) I really just want to get things back to normal here - we're living out of totes which really helps keep the dust out of all the clothes and everything we wanted to keep but weren't using has gone into a storage unit. 20 plus years and five people mange to accumulate a lot of crap so lots of things have gone to the poor or the trash. Even much of my paper files are gone. I tried to digitize most of the important stuff. Once all this is done I'll be ready to construct my built ins - which I plan to do myself this summer.

Time to go extract some records and catch up on emails. Loving the fact this is a long weekend here so I plan to take advantage of it!
