Well, The Mr. did the fun stuff. I was given light switch and outlet cover removal duty and spent the remainder of my day pulling nails and screws out of the lumber that we are going to reuse. I may not have been given a hammer, but now I ‘m pretty darn good atΒ using the reverse setting on a drill.
