Mom and Dad got a beautiful new chandelier for the entry, and we were able to get it all installed, thanks to Dad's handiwork (although we were up past 1:00AM getting it done). Hopefully these pics will help you to appreciate the intricacies of his home-made scaffolding.
Just in case things didn't hold up, we covered the entry floor with every pillow we could find upstairs. I think there were about 5,280.
Sarah-Dawn managed to convince her boss to let her take a load of cars to Boise, and on her way back to CA she stopped for the night in Poky. (Did everyone know she's a car hauler? She's keeping a journal of experiences and is probably going to publish a book about it when she's done. It's going to be hysterical.) She may have kept me up later than I should have been, but I'm pretty sure she helped with my recovery by just being around.
(In case you need proof, here's her truck.)
All in all, I'm having a great time being at home. Fortunately for me, mom has been around to force me to rest and remind me that I just barely had surgery. She even put off a Nirtz tournament so I could go to bed. (Now that is love.) We'll save that one for after Colin and Lori arrive.
