Ok, so a few updates. Our floors are done and they are beautiful. I love them more and more everyday I see them. (I will post pics soon but the last week i have been sick and have not done one thing besides sleep). After a week of living with my mom we moved back into the house last Sunday. I am not sure how healthy it was moving back in with all the fumes but I am still here so I guess it was ok.
We really didn’t move back in any of the furniture for a few reasons. One i came down with a cold on the Sunday we moved in and two we have a lot of painting and work to do before we start putting stuff back into the house. So this week nothing got done as I was sick at home in bed for two days and now finally feel better and can function.
I am ready to start getting some stuff done now and priority one is getting our drapes back up in our bedroom. I know the neighbors will be disappointed to have their nightly peep show taken away but its time! We have a huge list and only two weeks to get it done as I have a houseguest coming in town for the weekend and as of right now the guest room is bare.
The house seems like a weekly battle lately and I know things could aways be worse. The drama this week….the stove finally went out on us yesterday. Dead as a doornail. I know Cary will start going through chili withdrawal soon if it doesn’t get fixed so I had to place a call into our home owners insurance policy. We will see what actually gets covered. Second drama is we had an injury. No not me, Cary. He fell into the air vent hole in the master bedroom and decided he first broke his wrist and then it was his elbow. I told him he was lucky as it was his left arm and he is right-handed so he can still paint. BTW, nothing is broken. Also, yesterday Cary tried to set our house on fire by microwaving a wedge of laughing cow cheese with the foil wrapper still on. I came into the kitchen for a glass of water to find paper towels in the microwave ablaze.
So all of this and at the end of the day my husband says to me….”after we get done painting these rooms I am done working on the house for a while”. Heartbreaking.
