So you know how last week I went to Arlington so the kids could be out of the way while our new tile floor was installed? Let me tell you about what’s been going on since then. We got home on Wednesday night. By Friday afternoon, we had a new kitchen floor, a new bathroom floor, and a new fireplace. They all look amazing! So amazing that our yucky 14 year old baseboards look terrible. So we asked our guys about painting baseboards. And if we’re going to to that, we should probably go ahead and have them paint the door frames….and the chair rails…and the built in bookshelves…and the window sills…and the bathroom cabinets…and the dining room…and the hallway…and…well, that’s it. Oh, and what about getting a new roof? Since it’s the Week of Home Improvements, a new roof would fit right in to the schedule. Two roofing crews showed up bright and early Monday morning and did the entire thing in one day. Good thing, too, since it rained Tuesday and today.
The bottom line is my house is a chaotic, crazy mess. Well, maybe it’s not that different than normal. It just smells a little more fumey.
They should be done painting on Friday, and hopefully in between soccer pictures, Logan’s birthday party, and another birthday party I’ll have time to get things put back together and post some pictures. It’s so shiny and pretty and I love my floors and fireplace, and I love home improvements. And now that I’ve tasted the sweet nectar of someone else doing all the work…well, let’s just say it might be a little harder to ever go back to doing these sorts of projects myself.
