It's 7pm on Monday night. The porch... my porch... the most magnificent porch ever created... is done! We worked so hard today, but we still have to power wash everything. I am covered with brown paint cause I painted the cement walls below the siding while Joe framed the lattice under the porch. Then we had to drag about 50 plastic trash bags to the curb as tomorrow is trash day. They were filled with all of the left over pieces of wood and building debris. No one bag could weigh over 50 pounds so we couldn't put much in them. Since I have to work midnight shift at the hospital tonight, I have to take a quick nap before I go in. I'll take pictures tomorrow. Without spoiling anything... let me just say that this porch was worth every minute we spent trying to get the permit, every hour Joe took to build it, and every penny it cost us! Of all the exciting and happy days that I will ever have in my entire life, this will definitely be one I'll remember.
