Ding Dong The Floors Are Done!

When my wife and I built our house one of the things I really wanted was hardwood floors. I hate carpet and I think dining rooms that have carpet is extremely dumb. Well, it was hella expensive to do them at the time so we decided to wait.

Three years later we finally were able to get them. Last week I share they were about to be installed and how my wife and I spent the great portion of our night backing and moving things off the floor. It was a nightmare. I was so sore on Friday morning when I woke up that I almost did not make it through my morning workout.

Now as you read yesterday, we were at the beach all weekend. We came home and found our house in total disarray. The couches were moved to the side, the table was blocking the back door and everything and I mean EVERYTHING was covered in dust.

We spent about 2 to 3 hours after getting home from the beach arranging furniture and dusting off all the surfaces. All the cups and dishes that were left on the counters had to be washed again. It was crazy. I was tired after being on gone all weekend.

There is a plus to every story and that is that I LOVE my new floors and I think they make my house look amazing.

Before and After

Renovation Hell

Sorry that today’s post is late. My wife and I are in the process of finishing our renovation project in the house. We are in the beginning phases of getting hardwood installed on our first floor, up the stairs and the second floor landing.

Why has this been a nightmare. Shortly after agreeing with the contractor last night we were told that we had to remove all the stuff off the floor of our pantry, hall closet, and dining room. The only problem is that the pantry is overstocked, the hall closet is more of a junk closet, and the dining room is more of a playroom with a ton of toys in it. It is a little embarrassing to talk about but even Monica Geller had a secret junk closet.

This would be an easy task to accomplish if we did not have appointments on Thursday and Friday night and if we were not planning to leave for the beach on Friday. This is the problem. Last night my wife and I tackled the hall closet and dumped most of it to a temporary home in the garage/home gym. Tonight I am riding solo as the wife is getting her hair done and I have the kids all to myself. My task that I was given was to finish the rest by myself.

This is going to make for a fun evening. Happy Thursday! I think I need more of this…
