After much deliberation, we decided it was in our best interest to replace the insulation on the main level of the house. So last weekend, after hitting up our new hangout, Home Depot, Matt put me to work helping him install our new insulation. Contrary to popular belief, I am quickly realizing that I am capable of doing a multitude of construction-related tasks, installing insulation being one of them. It's not all that tricky, but it is extremely unpleasant to the senses. Dust masks are a must, but I am not convinced that hours of breathing in one of those things is good for you either. Also, I failed to cover my forearms at first and managed to rub them up against some insulation early on in the night--not a good move. They were still itching the next day!
