Construction begins...

We filed last week for our permit to refinish our basement and this week we were approved. It cost $800 - yikes! (And that doesn't include the 4 inspections that we'll need at about $150 each!) It's a really good thing we're going to do most of the work ourselves! Today we are headed to the "Depot" to pick up STUDS! How exciting! I can't remember how many we need, but it's over 100 I think! I'll either be good and strong at the end of the day or sore and exhausted! I'm guessing the latter! I sure hope Tom is around when he's ready for the dry wall!!!

I don't think we'll go skiing this weekend, although Stupid-bowl Sunday is usually a great day to go because no one is there! Back to the slopes next weekend though - the snow is probably wonderful - they got dumped on this past week!

I learned this week that my bus to Denver (FREX) may either have their service reduced or eliminated all together. If this happens it could mean early retirement for me until I can find an "at-home" job or something in Castle Rock. I'm going to the hearing on Wednesday. There are a LOT of us who ride daily and even the drivers are really pushing attendance at the meeting, so hopefully we'll manage to keep the service or some version of it. I'm trying not to stress too much yet. But I'll be happy to take any prayers you can give to keep my link to the city running!

Off to move furniture and carry those "STUDS"!!! Happy Saturday!

First of all, what are you going to do to the basement? Anything craft related? And secondly good luck with the bus service, hopefully a good turn out will show a great need.
