Juggling home improvement with a full time job aint easy, and I commend everyone who makes it look that way. Don't be fooled. After a fifteen hour day at work yesterday, I found myself laughing on my drive home, which quickly turned into sobs. Sometimes you just gotta cry it out.
The door doesn't work. The frame is level, the door frame fits, but the doors are warped in such a way that they only close if both sides are open and close at the same time -like cabinets that have one too many layers of paint on them (another experience I'm all too familiar with). On top of that, we didn't take into account the pile of the carpet we are installing in the living room and will have to tile a "mud area" around the door so that it can open correctly. In a way, this will be good, because we can have an area for a mat and shoes.
Mark is my rock and I couldn't do this without him. He knows just how to calm me down and get me to realize that it will all work out just fine. He will be renting a truck and exchanging the door today. He wins MVP for this project for sure.
