I know it has been a long time,I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful New Year’s. I know I did. We had my Great-Niece, Fiona (“Wee Fee”) blessed on Dec. 30th. They are only here for another week and I am trying to squeeze in as much baby time as possible. For our New Year’s Eve party we went over to Bridgy’s and had a mellow gathering with a bunch of friends. Jon really got into the spirit of things.
While I do have resolutions in mind, my ONLY focus is going on getting my house DONE DONE DONE! I have had so little time and even less energy that I have seriously neglected this little blog of mine. I doubt I will have any readers at all after I’m done renovation. It has been hell.on.earth.
We have painted the front room, painted the inside of my antique corner cupboard, packed and moved tons of boxes, reorganized my cabinents and have taken off every baseboard in the house to be replaced with new ones.
There is so much to do and the list keeps growing.
I have a quasi-functional bathroom. Since we only have ONE and I am in the suck of the female burden of all time (i.e-The Period from HELL), this is a VERY happy development. The moldy subfloor and sheetrock are gone, the gross and tiny vanity is replaced and we also have a new toilet. The old one was only two years old, but Jonathan shattered it with the sledgehammer while he was breaking apart our cast iron tub, so we had to get a new one. We still have a LOT to do in there, but it is going much faster than I thought it would.
We also have all the linoleum laid down in our kitchen, washroom and pantry. The contractors were slated for three days of work, but it all got done yesterday. This gives me some time to move boxes and furniture into the kitchen before they come to start replacing all the carpeting on Friday.
I am really pleased with the way the flooring turned out. While I am not a huge fan of linoleum, I really like what we picked and it is cheaper and more practical than the material that would have been my first picks. I’ll see how I like it. ANYTHING is better than the grody white flooring we used to have.
Now that my flooring is in, the cabinets (Which I have always hated) look even worse to me, so we’re going to paint those as well. I am so tired and it feels so good to have a new floor that I just want to lay here and chase cars.
Feel free to join me if you like.
