Taping and Bedding Drywall in the Murphy Money Pit

Taping and Bedding Drywall is not something that I am good at. I have watched numerous YouTube “How To” videos to get tips on technique. It looks SO much easier in the videos! I even bought a new tool called a “Hawk” because the guy that used the Hawk tool was very quick and efficient. Well, the Hawk was not the miracle worker I had hoped it would be. I am still just as bad at taping and bedding as I was before the Hawk. I have been doing it for a couple of days now, so I think I am improving, but improvement from what I was doing before is not saying a lot. I keep telling myself that when it is sanded, it will look better. But, as I stand back and look at what I have accomplished so far, (from a distance) it looks great! There is still so much more to do, and it is piece meal at best since we don’t have much time to work on this project that I have named, “The Murphy Money Pit”. I am going to keep at it as long as I can and hopefully the next time I come and am able to work on it, it will look even better! Oh, to win a lottery and be able to just hire people to do it all!

About Moqqi

I was born in the Midwest but I have actually lived more of my life on the West Coast. I am looking forward to that day when I once again am living in the Midwest. Hopefully that will mean that I am retired and getting to live life at a bit of a slower pace! I've been married to the same guy for 36 years! We met when he was working for a semi-pro hockey team and I was selling tickets to the games. He also played hockey at an amateur and college level and I think I fell instantly in love when we went ice skating together and he saved me from crashing when someone behind me fell (I was skating backwards, he was skating forward, so we were facing each other.) and he reached out with his big, strong arms and grabbed both of my upper arms and just stopped me dead in my tracks to make sure I didn't fall over the person. My Hercules! I have two children, a son and a daughter. My son is an Registered Nurse and works in an ICU. He is married to a wonderful girl that I couldn't have hand picked better. They have produced the absolute, most cute and adorable Grandchildren that anyone could ask for! My daughter is now a Fifth Grade teacher. She has a joy and passion for teaching and loving her students that is not seen in many teachers these days. She truly found her calling. I have this blog because I thought it would be nice to have a place that I could share what is going on in our lives and I also just love to tell stories. I'm not a writer per se, but I do love a good story. Even if it's just a short little quip!
