Jeez. Has it really been that long? Over a month ago?
Well, I'm here to apologize to those who still read my blog and haven't given up on me completely.
We're here, doing mostly fine, suffering through remodeling our house:
In the past 6 weeks we've had the entire second floor refloored (except for the tile in the bathrooms which I'm wondering if they'll EVER get done), the exterior and interior repainted, new countertops and faucets in the bathrooms, new mirrors and light fixtures in the bathrooms, new high-efficiency heating and air conditioning units (this was actually done twice - the first time they installed the wrong units and scratched up my new flooring), new closet doors hung in the kids' bedrooms, re-plumbed sprinklers in the front yard, and moved the girls back into the same room again so I could make Makena's tiny former bedroom into my tiny sewing room. I'm still waiting for my stairs to be re-carpeted (supposed to be happening tomorrow) and my bathroom floors to be retiled (been waiting over two weeks just for a bid on that job). And my brother is supposed to start building a cover for our back patio next week.
Remodeling really sucks. But my new genuine simulated processed wood product floors upstairs are mighty pretty. And I really love the new exterior color in our house. Exactly what I wanted.
I do hereby declare that once my house is back in order and relative normalcy has returned that I'll be a better blogger. In the meantime, pray that I don't throttle our flooring contractor if we fails to show up again for the third time again tomorrow.
And as always, praying for Haiti. And Chile.
