Knotty, Knotty

Woo hoo! The floors in the house are finally finished!

It's been about 6 hours since they finished, so theoretically the polyurethane is dry but I plan to wait until tomorrow to actually walk on them. The cats may be tempted to put it to the test sooner but the fumes are still a bit overpowering.

Added bonus? The surly attitude from the sub-contractor has all but disappeared and I think we even bonded over tales of horse riding and calf castrating. Scoob was rather enamored when the sub mentioned his wife does all the dishes around the house and now Scoob is entertaining a more traditionally Southern division of household labor.

Well, he was until I pointed out that the sub's wife probably doesn't have a full-time job (seasonal CPA) and then listed all the "man" jobs he'd have to add to his chore list. He was joking anyhow. Or so he said.

Anyhow, I think we may have turned an initially bad first encounter into a fledgling friendship. So, Yea!
