It’s been quite a lot of work, and has taken all the patience I’ve ever had — okay, so maybe not counting pregnancy — but the work on our house is done.
For the past week, I’ve been fixing and cleaning and enjoying the new look just long enough to put off that not only did I need to sort through the mountain of stuff in the garage, but also pull out all the holiday trappings.
My sister and her family are coming to spend the holidays with us this year, so I’ve also had to venture into my son’s area and sort of detox. Good thing there’s new carpet and paint, right?
So welcome to our home and Happy Holidays!
Ahhh…no more barf stains from the cat. Nice.
And then there’s that area that the pets used to love to deposit their *ahem* on. It was beyond gross. But no more. Bwahahahahha!
And then there’s the powder room down there. Just a tad different…
So nice not to have the carpet. Love the wood. Love it. And there’s still a rug for the ani-mules to lay on when the sun shines through the skylight.
Not missing the ugly fireplace at all. Can’t imagine why.
And I’m loving the new dark, dark red wall in the family room and my kitchen — and a freshly painted ceiling with no remnants of where I started to paint three years ago and then pooped out.
Not quite a perfect reason for not writing here, but nearly. I can blame the rest of my time on that food blog. I definitely have to get my priorities in order for the new year so that I can get back to writing about something other than food. For those of you who stop by and still read, I appreciate it quite a bit.
Thanks for not giving up on me — yet.
Here’s to you and yours. Have a lovely holiday.
