Poka went to the Farm with Dad, so that when the drywall guy came on Thursday, she didn't have the torture of someone else in the house while she was locked up. The drywall guy managed to tape up the remaining sections and have them mudded by dinner time. We'll have to do a light sanding, and likely some touch up (as he didn't have the lightest of hands), but for what we paid, we'll manage. So, the near half of the drywall taped. One thing less to do.
On Sunday morning we hopped on the road again and went into Toronto to see War Horse on the stage. I cannot express how amazing the show was. I was in tears a couple times, not out of sadness, but first out of admiration and wonder (yup, I'm like that) at the puppetry skills, and then the second time as a result of the storyline. What a great show. I'd go again.
We found ourselves somewhere to go for dinner on the cold and windy night, and then hunkered down at the Radission by the Harbourfront Centre. It was nice there, and although breakfast wasn't included, it had underground parking (incl) and a 12pm check-out time. We actually were able to even keep our parking spot the next day while we toddled around T.O. We ate lunch at one of my favourite restaurants, Everest, and after the amazing Indian delight, we went to Chapters to amble around before settling ourselves into Boston Pizza with about 100+ other Jays fans to await the 7pm game time.
Alas, despite a full house, and some nifty National anthem flag trickery, the Jays didn't come out on top after being tied until the 9th. Silly Jays... still a great game though! I don't think I'll want to sit where we did this time for a future game, as we couldn't see the Jumbo-tron. You'd be amazed at how much it feels part of the game, especially when you can't see it. Oh well, now we know. OH - and I finally got a Blue Jays jersey. Treat to me! Unfortunately Glenn's "treat" store wasn't open, but next time we're downtown, I'm sure we can swing into the CBC Store for a visit :)
Next up - closet installation, putting up a wall, priming, sanding, patching, painting . . . then carpet? Who cares, because after painting, I can put our clothes upstairs!!!
