Hay congratulations to you and the lucky couple ! Now you start baby proofing the house , slowly moving precious or dangerous objects further and further up until your top shelving is crowded out and nothing below , good times .
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.

Thanks guys. Thankfully, they bought a house last May. So mine will not get turned upside down too much. :lol:

But I will have to get up there more often now to help him finish remodeling the master bedroom and bathroom. When they moved in, the put their bedroom furniture in one of the smaller bedrooms to redo the master. But they started doing other areas of the house first like painting the living room, dining room and kitchen. Cleaning up around the house outside, etc. The bedroom they are in now will become the nursery, so we gotta get the master done and then get the nursery done. We have 6-7 months to get everything finished, but time can get away from you when you have a lot of other stuff going on too. :wink:

Grandpa... That's a serious position in life. I was raised by my Grandfather and treasure the memories. He taught me patience, how to use tools, and how to catch a fish!
