I think I love Patch Cement

Perhaps I have mental problems, but I really enjoyed patching various holes in the basement with patch cement tonight!

The basement is all scraped down, in preparation for the big paint tomorrow. Dave is a madmen, there's no stopping him! We went and bought fancy epoxy for the basement walls/floor, no water or critters will ever find their way in when we're done, man. [Bringing total # trips to the home store to 6]. Eh....we might drop dead from the fumes....but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

OH, hilarious - stuck up between the joists and the wall at the edge of the basement ceiling were old underwear and shirts! I hope Dave or Adrian has a picture of this, it is super funny. Our house perhaps lodged some sort of perve, there was a least one pair of ladies underwear stuffed up there. Hahahha. I suppose that was what one did before spray-foam?

"Well, I don't need these underwear anymore."
"Here, let me plug a draft in the basement with them."
"Good thinking!"

I also did a wee bit more spackling in the living room, probably need to do a wee bit more after some dry time and some sanding.

you mean that isn't what you are supposed to do with old underwear?
