Not a Lot to Show

It was a lovely, relaxing, long weekend.  Would I like it as much if it was a permanent thing and I didn't have a job to go to?  I would like to find out.  I feel like I squandered away too much of it even though I went out to work on the mobile home Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  I only stayed 4 or 5 hours each day because it was hot and dirty work.  I managed to cut a new piece of paneling to cover the wall where the water was leaking in.  I'm going to be honest.  It isn't getting painted any time soon.  Let's just call it an "accent" wall.  I have more important chores to do.

Do I dare add trim around the door?
I put up a pull-up bar in the doorway of the bathroom for my nephew.  He didn't ask for it, I just put it there to make exercise convenient.  Maybe if he hits his head on it, it will remind him to do a few pull ups.

After that, I started tackling the shower plumbing.  I decided on a configuration for the pipes and then went home, thought about it, and changed things around.  Then I bought plumbing connectors and started working only to realize that my plan would not work.  I left frustrated and bought more plumbing parts.  I would call that job only 10% complete.  It will have to be my main focus on Friday if I am going to get it done before my nephew comes back on Saturday.  I did not work on snake proofing the dogs' fence or making the cat area more secure or fixing up the kitchen.  There's just too much to do.  At least the weather should be in the 80's this week.  That will help my productivity for a while until it gets cold and I want to just stay in bed and nap with the dogs.
