Day 39 - May 9th
It's work on the house day! We have another house in Tulsa. It's Russell's old house. He had renters living there that failed to mention there was a leak. Long story short...the foundation sunk in 6-8inches in the very center of the 2-story house. Like a sink hole. He had to gut the house, raise the walls back up, and is now rebuilding it himself. With the wonderful help from his mother, myself, and Ginger. And from the pictures I've seen, he's had a scattering of very dedicated friends come and help with some very huge projects. They had to re-lay the foundation inside the house, with the walls still up!! It's been a big mess. But now we're down to the final stages. Today I spent 4 hours mowing the yard of it's first season mow after 3 weeks of rain. Yeah...I'm sore. Russell, Elain (Russ' mom/Nana) and Ginger hung a whole wall of sheet rock, complete with an arch cut out. Ginger made sure the wall was covered in her artwork, stories, and tic-tac-toe. We were all exhausted by the end of the day, but we got a lot done!
