Chicken Little: “Oh, help! The sky is falling!”
Henny Penny: “How do you know?”
Chicken Little: “I saw it with my own eyes, and heard it with my own ears, and part of it fell on my head!”
If Chicken Little thought the world was coming to an end after a little acorn landed on his head, he and Henny Penny would have lost their minds in our house this weekend! Saturday’s major task was knocking the plaster off the ceilings. And yes, a lot of it fell on our heads.
It’s bad enough to have the plaster falling in your face, but we got the added surprise of loose insulation raining down upon us. There’s no way to spin it, this was a dirty, itchy, no good, very bad job. However, unlike Chicken Little, we know this isn’t a sign that the world is coming to an end, but more like a beacon of hope to know this dirtiest of jobs done and behind us!
We were again lucky to have lots of volunteers for demo day number two—Matthew’s sister Rebecca, my parents, my sister Emily, and our friend Skyler all came to help. Plus, we hired a local handyman named Doug to help with the really tough stuff.
Here’s a recap of all our dusty, dirty fun:
Matthew makin’ it rain.
Loose insulation everywhere!
It’s a dirty, dusty job, but somebody’s gotta do it!
Wheelbarrow load after wheelbarrow load to fill up Big Red…again!
We haven’t scared Rebecca away yet!
Even though my mom was down a hand, she went to town pulling nails out of the studs. A broken arm can’t slow her down!
My dad, the forester, came to help with a special wood project. 😉
My sister, Emily, is stylish as always with sassy purple earplugs to coordinate with her sweatshirt.
Sisters that demo together, stay together. (We missed you, Rebecca!!)

Skyler joins the demo party!
Hammer down! (This actually happened twice!!!)
Another busy day… another full dumpster.
