Dusty and I are redoing our kitchen. We figured, while we're at it, let's go ahead and put down the hardwood floors we've been talking about. Great for resale value, since we're planning on putting our house on the market, right?
Right. I hope.
So we've been living on the top floor and the kids in the basement for about a week now. We have a hard rule of no computers in the kids' rooms. We need them to sleep in there, and we prefer having them where we can see what they're looking at. Unfortunately, that's not going to be the case until we're done the renovations, so we're all living with it for now.
I keep thinking it's too quiet, though. I send Dusty to check on them. I just know they're plotting world domination or something. Especially since the eight year old loves to sing Brand New Day.
Dusty is now working out of the spare bedroom, and I'm in our bedroom. Thank goodness I work on a laptop, or this would have been far less comfortable.
As much of a pain as it is, I think it's going to be worth it. From what I've seen so far, the hardwoods we picked (a pretty bamboo that looks gorgeous just sitting in the box) is going to really set everything off.
This is what things look like this week:
And I even have my furbabies keeping me company. Sort of.
Okay, it's not so much company as "Let me lie here and look cute while you work."
I'll post more pics as things progress. I can't wait to see it done.
P.S.: I'm about a quarter of the way through Stripped Bear, and I'm expecting edits on Morgan's Fate soon. So the renovations haven't disrupted my work too much, thank goodness.
