Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. I checked it out on a Monday and returned it on Wednesday! I'm sure I've mentioned before that I'm generally a slow reader but this one kept my attention and it was a surprisingly clean read.
Of course I had to go get the movie at the Redbox once I was finished but I must say that I found the movie disappointing. It was just okay and the book was great.
Update: I wouldn't say that this book is as good as the first one. It is written in Darcy's view instead of Rachel's and apparently she's a little more graphic. Just a little.

Yesterday my dad and I cleared the room, swept, mopped up the dust, cleaned the windows and I put the globe on the wall above the stairs. That one doesn't need to be fancy for now and it is actually only meant to light up the stairs. It is on the same circuit as the room that Max is sitting in. Can you see him? He has never really been allowed in this room and since we had the puppy gate up the entire time we have been working in here he has gotten used to the idea that he is not allowed in. So far so good. He's happy (see him smiling?) to just sit there and watch and if he happens to step in I chase him right out. No dogs allowed. We'll see how long that lasts but it is my hope to keep this rule applied for as long as possible.
I have plans to put all of the cover plates on the plugs and switches. They'll need some slight adjustments to fit flush like I want and how they should be. Did you know that I installed all of those plugs and lights? You don't have to pay the electrician to do anything more than you want him to. I had him set the boxes and then I did the rest by myself.
I want to get some Quickrete concrete cleaner and etcher. I'm back to my decision to just stain the concrete but this time with less protection (no super epoxy coat). After all, I'm not driving a car on it, just a rolly chair.

Here's the short list of things to finish:
Install lighting fixtures
Install my desk
It looks like it will be a few more weeks until I can move in.

New window, new door siding replaced with better pieces so there are no cracks! The lighting fixture is not up yet since we finished this last night and it appears I am missing a bracket. I consider it done.
