Yes yes... Merry Christmas and all that to everyone. I can't wait until this is over myself. OH I know be of good cheer and all that. Well fine. I try every year but the last minute Christmas rush always put's me in a super bad mood no matter how much I try and be prepared for it it's always rush, rush, rush we got to go by this time on Christmas eve and nothing puts me in a fouler mood than being rushed.
I think my Dad has the best Christmas plan of all. He does absolutely nothing except stay at home and wait for us to stop by on the way to the other side of the family get together so he can dish out presents to all the grand kids and get his from us. He sits in his big easy chair watching the Sci-Fi channel all night with a huge smile on his face.
Personally I long for Thanksgiving where the food is just as good, if not better, and there aren't 100 million little things to remember, get ready, wrap, etc.
I did get one lucky break today though. I finally figured out what was going wrong with the flooring and it can't really be fixed easily so we are abandoning it and going with another plan. Turns out the floor is slightly off level just enough to make that super thin floor veneer keep popping out of the groove. I figured that with a small building of that design getting the floor absolutely level was going to be a problem and I was right. It looks like it has sunk on the pad maybe 1/16th of an inch on one edge. Which makes sense as thats where most of the weights comes down on it. So We need to try something a bit more forgiving and I have a few ideas. It will also allow me to put a bit of an insulation lining down like I wanted to do to begin with.
So Merry Christmas everyone. It's been raining, drizzling, snowing or overcast here for almost an entire month now and although not real cold it is starting to have an effect on my nerves. The sun has abandoned us for good I think.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
