Another month

I just happened to notice that it has been another month gone and I have not written to much again. Things have been just as they say in the upper northeast "wicked crazy".
I received an email midweek a few weeks back that I was being activated and being deployed to Iraq. Not even a phone call just an email directing me to report. Now being an IT guy for a small company, it is pretty hard to just walk out the door from my job on a Wednesday and tell your employer that for the next 16 months you are going to be "gone". Kind of fucked up huh? Well after a flurry of phone calls and text messages "they" decided I wasn't needed, but to stand by for the next unit that is being mobilized. Work has been pretty cool about the whole thing.

What does that have to do with the house. Nothing really other than I haven't done much.
Did get some gutters on the house last week, Larry did a great job and was in and out and done in an afternoon. Had some rain, gutters worked great, basement still leaks.

Not sure if you all remember, I started to finish out the laundry room a long time back with white 1/4" melamine. I did take and tear those four panels out and started to replace the melamine with OSB and then the melamine over the top. FAIL! I hate that stuff with a vengence! so the laundry room is still half finished just a different color. I left the OSB as it is.
