Home Improvement, II

Another day spent in the attic inhaling asbestos, soot, dust, lead paint, and fiberglass. But I've cleared out the old sheet rock and re-insulated about one third of the space. Hopefully I can get the rest insulated Friday and then sometime over the winter work on walls and flooring.

No matter how well I bundle up, with mask and goggles and gloves, I still end up itchy and coughing up gunk. I looked like a coalminer before showering this afternoon.

Now I'm back at work, and Emily is preparing to slaughter me at online Scrabble, just as Yahtzee and T. butchered me at Risk last Saturday.
