the flooring is here

We have several 8-foot-long bundles of wood flooring downstairs. It smells *really* nice. Now, if we can only get it put in before dinner on Friday, we don't have to move it around from place to place... :)

If you have leftover pieces after you put it in, I might want them.

spare bits
I don't think there'll be a usable quantity...I'll probably have less than 10 sq feet left over. :(

You're welcome to use Wood Floors Plus yourself, if you like. They're cheap, and they deliver...but they're in Glen Burnie, and I don't know if they'll deliver all the way to your new house.

Do you need help?
I volunteer my wife. She's very good at installing flooring. And now that she's pregnant, her lower center of gravity will make her unable to stop working and get up!

The dog also likes construction, but she's better at moral support than actual work.

And, as for me, I will take the job where I can do the least damage. I'll supervise.

Re: Do you need help?
Your wife has already declined.
Your dog has no thumbs.
Thanks, but I'm qualified at supervision myself. I think we'll be okay without your assistance. *noogie*

um, sweetheart? I don't think you can count on it being in before Friday dinner... Jim's coming TOMORROW to give a price quote and then he'll need time to clear his schedule...

I think we're just going to have to move it. Dr. Mellow and Mr. and Mrs. bodnej won't mind.

They won't mind helping us move it? Why don't we get them to help us put it in? Jon's already volunteered (in his own special way...)

I meant they wouldn't mind the wood being piled up destroying the aesthetic beauty that is our living room.

Such a simple answer to a complex problem. That's why you're the smart one.

This reminds me...
Watching the two of you use a blog to communicate reminds me of a story from "Triumph of the Nerds 2.0.1" by Bob Cringely.

Cisco, the company that invented the multi-protocol router and made much of the internet infrastructure possible, was founded by a husband and wife team. They both had email at Stanford in the 1980's, but were on different networks. They wanted to send emails to each other to check on who fed the cats, but couldn't. So the husband invented the multi-protocol router just so he could find out if his cat was fed.

So this is just like your floor. Except about cats. And you aren't getting rich off of your LiveJournals. But there are computers and married couples involved, so it's similar. And it's a good story. I rest my case.

Re: This reminds me...
That was an interesting aside. A bizarre one, but interesting nonetheless.
