Waking up around 11, I stumbled outside to begin tearing off old siding (but remember, save the styrofoam!) that had been warped by our neighbor's garage when it had caught fire. Scaffolding soon went up and my brother joined us in nailing up the new siding, bottom to top. Fast-forward to the last row, where the new siding meets the old. The siding is eight inches tall and the gap is 8.5 inches. Pulling and renailing ensues until we manage to slide piece upon piece to complete the last row.
And during all this, I'd only had a banana beforehand. We picked up some pizza and I ate way too much of it way too quickly, I even had the nerve to throw in an apple and a cup of milk to top it all off. I felt like I was going to puke for a few minutes after I finished the apple and milk. No regrets.
Potentially bad news: My council isn't really getting any Philmont sign-ups (minimum crew members is seven) and it seems only my dad, brother, and I have signed up (though we haven't sent in our applications, apparently). I'll be infinitely disappointed if they cancel the trip.
Tomorrow will be filled with reading chapter upon chapter for US History and minor English homework. All blah-work, but at least I finished my book tonight.
