like sanding through the hour glass

Monday, 8 pm, rented random orbital sander from Menards.

Began sanding.
Realized I needed Edger.
9:45 pm, rented edger from Menards.
Continued sanding until 4:42 am.
Swept floors and cleaned up rental equipment to avoid $25 charge.
Went to basement apt. where we are staying and showered.
Returned equipment at 7 am.
Took Tuesday off from work.
Went back to house to stain floors.
8 am to 1:20 pm stained floors.
Came home and laid on rug in living room.
Slept until 3 pm.
Got up and showered.
Stain dried.
I ate dinner and went to my softball game.
We lost.
Again.
Was sweaty already and headed over to house at 10:30 and put on first coat of polyurethane.
Got home at midnight.
Showered.
Went to bed.
Got up at 4:45 am.
Went over to house and put on second and final coat of polyurethane.
Came home.
Showered.

Drove to work.

Roughly 36 hrs total.
BANG!
New floors.
