In our remodel I have been mostly involved in the tearing out of the old and needing to be replaced. At first it was fun. A month of this. however, has worn on me. I am tired of deconstruction. I want to put together and make new. Yet I still have more nails to pull, flooring and a bathtub to remove. sigh

I watched from behind my safety glasses and respirator mask, my husband, build stairs and rewire the house. He lovingly recognized my need to create and puts me on wall framing for the day.

The damn little framing nails and I did not get along for a good half hour at the start of this new venture. I was reduced to tears before I could get one to drive in properly.

If you can't tell. this week I am overwhelmed. I need a new outlook or less pressure.

want me to have a talk with those nails? they shouldn't be acting that way.

would you? and while your at it, we need to track down the person who built the house in 1940 and ask him why straight walls and even flooring was not a priority.
