Sorry I've been so quiet lately. I've been renovating my home.

It's amazing... I've had such a great time doing it. I never thought I'd actually enjoy working. And it is - it's a LOT of work. Laying hardwood floors, repainting, knocking out railings and such. We've had the materials for a while, but we've only now began doing the actual work.

One thing I've discovered throughout this little endeavour - house-building contractors are sloppy, lazy motherfuckers. We pulled up the old carpeting in our hallway upstaris, and underneath the foam padding was a layer of SAND.


I live in the middle of Georgia. There's not a beach for several hundred miles in any direction. And yet, there was SAND under the carpeting of my home.

That's just... I don't know what it is, but it's something that is synonomous with "bad."

Anyway, there's the update. Wahoo.
