Quick update and a song...

We move this weekend! Hopefully after that I'll be able to write some better posts. Or at least have time to look for guest posters. :)

After painting for 2 weeks straight, my hands hurt! They're cramped into a claw. But, the house looks and feels much better. Unfortunately, I didn't finish painting before the moving date--tomorrow. There are still 3 bathrooms and a laundry room that need painting. And lots of touch up work. Ah, well. Eventually.

Monday will see the beginning of tile work for the floors. Half of them (900+ sq. ft) are purchased and will be installed over several days next week. The kitchen cabinets (minus the island and the three pieces that had to be sent back because of damage during shipping) are ready to be picked up. Slowly we will get this house put back together.

I'm just not sure how we're going to survive without a full working kitchen. There is a stove and oven in my mom's attached apartment, but she has no counter space. Should be interesting. I see a lot of crock pot dinners in our future. And paper plates. LOTS of paper plates.

Driving back and forth (about 30 minutes) between the two houses has meant a lot of radio time. Here's one of my new favorite songs.


  1. Hopefully you'll be able to work around all your stuff. With no kitchen, I predict a lot of take out in your future.

  2. I've had kitchens without counter space. It's not easy and there's lots of running back and forth. Good luck.

  3. It's coming together. And once it's all finished it'll be worth it. Too bad you couldn't get it all done before the move in date, though. Good luck.
