Did I mention I'm glad we hired it done?

I've been packing all week and have made good progress despite a sick cat that took up an entire day with a vet visit (punctured foot, abscess, fighting mad, sedation, lion haircut, enough said). Woke up at 4AM and decided to get started on my day - and finished packing the massive hall closet. Woot!

We're making daily trips to the house to drop off boxes and to stoke the fire so the drywall mud will dry properly. The drywaller is on his third coat and expects to be done sanding by Monday. Everything is a mess up there and I'm extremely happy that we're not the ones who had to do all of this. As to the mess, he'll do a preliminary clean-out but our experience with drywall dust is that it lasts forever. We've got plans for a dust blowing system that will be cobbled together using shop vacs and Chris's sawdust collection system. Then we'll move on to mopping, more blowing, more mopping, and if we're lucky some initial painting before finishing the move out of Troy. Too aggressive? Maybe! But we're gonna try.

In the meantime, here is a picture of poor T'BD feeling very sorry for herself. Since she's normally long-haired, this new do is definitely on the chilly side. Fortunately for her, she has to be kept inside for a week. Unfortunately for me, I have to try to keep her inside. Glad the pain meds make her drowsy.

Not a happy cat
