9 days to go and starting to panic....

So over the weekend we got the texture done to the walls. On Sunday, Kirk's dad and mom were putting up some of the siding while we were at work. We get a call right before we leave saying that his parents were on the way to the emergency room, Kirk's dad got shot in the knee with the nail gun. Thankfully it didn't hit any bones, but he is out of commission for a while. Now that means our major worker for the house is down and Kirk and I can't get any time off between now and the time we HAVE to be done; in fact, next week I don't have my regular days off and my second day off isn't until the 1st, the day after everything needs to be done. We did buy a crap load of paint, and I have done a second layer of primer on half of the porch and the master bath has gotten primer for everything but the corners and ceiling. This texture is a pain to paint over. I was really hoping to have at least all of the addition done before work this week, but only got one room. It sucks. Kirk did get the corner pieces up of the siding and all the windows have been framed out, so that's a good thing. We are (crossing my fingers) no longer doing the tile work, we called my uncle (he has his own tile company) to see if his guys can come do it in such short notice. There is no way that Kirk and I can do the rest of this on our own. We still have to put the primer on the rest of the addition, all the new walls and the other half of the porch, finish siding the house, paint all of the interior, paint all of the exterior (we have someone coming out to do that), tile the kitchen and bathroom, put in the kitchen cabinets and appliances, and finish the bathroom. I really hope we can get this done in time....
