Ryan decided he would rather ski than lay floors, so we are letting our heart pine age another week in the cabin before he finishes off the den. However, Mr. Seals, in spite of suffering an abscessed tooth, has been diligently showing up at the cabin. Most recently, he completed cutting and fitting all the pine for the stairs. While he waits for Ryan to fasten everything down upon his return, Mr. Seals is using antibiotics and pain medications to manage his tooth. The pain is upsetting his normally sweet disposition.
