Day 7 was a much needed day of rest.
Today was a good start to the New Year. I slept in after staying up late to watch the ball drop then Kelly made some waffles for breakfast. My Dad came over for a framing party. We re-worked the wall that I had framed and gave us some more space for the bookcase that will hold the games. We didn't get very far before we needed to make the first trip (and actually only) trip to Menard's. We needed some Liquid Nail and decided to pick up the rest of the 2x4's as well. The kids all came along and we piled the van full of wood.
After unloading the van we went to work, only stopping for a short sandwich break around 3:15. We managed to get the longest wall (17+ feet) framed and the tricky little bookcase area pretty well framed in. We got a lot accomplished. I was very thankful for his help and enjoy spending time with my Dad.
We piled the kids in the car and van again and headed for Grandma and Grandpa's house so that I could take a look at their computers. Their Internet connection was having some issues as was my Dad's wireless card on his laptop. We got those straightened out and came home.
Kelly had a fabulous meal prepared for us and waiting on the table. We had salad, ham, sweet potatoes, wild rice, and home bread. It all tasted very good. We read scriptures and sent the girls to bed.
I finally sat down for the first time all day and got to watch the 4th quarter of the Rose Bowl, but it wasn't really much of a game at that point. I'm going to bed early tonight!
