House Update: cured slab

I had lots of plans for this week while the slab cured. Moving our shower into the well shed. Cleaning out the chicken coops. Rearranging flocks and coops. Stripping the forms off the slab. Etc, etc, etc.

But my body had other plans. I mentioned in passing in the slab pour post that I got sick the day after the slab was poured. Sad to say that I’ve basically lived on the couch ever since.

(An actual representation of how my week has gone -when I’m not hacking up a lung.)

Here it’s been an entire week and the only things I’ve done are things that I can do with little effort. Except for Flower Girl’s birthday party. Sick or not, my baby turned 5, so, you know.

But, Pajii and Princess Girl have been life savers.

Princess Girl helped us begin the dismantling process on the forms.

When the danger of freezing nights was over, she and Pajii got out on the slab and folded up all the concrete blankets.

When we had a windstorm that nearly blew away all our plastic off the slab, they got out there and fixed it.

And today, Pajii worked on stripping the rest of the forms off the sides of the cured slab.

I’m so thankful to them both for doing the work that needs to be done while I can’t do it.

Hopefully I’ll kick this thing soon and we’ll be off and running again. Hopefully while the weather is still nice.

For now, I sleep.
