A Week Off And I Missed My Blogiversary

I've been MIA lately since my in-laws were in town.  I decided to take a little break from all things that plug in and just enjoy the weather and the company.  That and I was obsessively reading The Hunger Games series.  Anyone out there read it?  I finally succumbed as I needed something to occupy me while I was waiting for my car to get fixed.  I have to say that overall I really enjoyed it.  There were parts that lagged, but that didn't stop me from giving everyone I know the Heisman until I finished it.

So since then I've been trying to catch up on my favorite blog reads.  I also realized that I missed my blogiversary.  I can't believe I've been doing this a year and still don't have a finished room...exasperated sigh.  I have to say though that despite my being a sucky blogger, I've really enjoyed becoming a part of this whole other world that I didn't know existed until last year.  "Meeting" new people and reading about their amazing talents had been so much fun for me.  I think I've learned a thing or two along the way which is  a huge bonus.  

Anyway, before I get too mushy, things are moving along in the house. The upstairs laundry room and bathroom have walls which is a plus.  And this arrived last week.

This is the vanity that's going in my daughter's bathroom.  Lucky girl right?  We got it for a great price so I'm pretty happy.  The tile work is starting this week.  I have a feeling it won't be done until next week though since some things need to be prepped first.  

Lots of work starting this week which is music to my ears.  The dining room floor has been refinished and they're starting on the formal living room this week.  Our master bedroom is getting some carpentry work done, and the outside porch is going to be worked on.  All these things = getting us very close to moving out of the mouse palace and into the house.  It really can't come soon enough.  Three people and a cat cannot live together for an extended period of time in a small room without wanting to kill each other at least once a day.  Actually we've done quite well together, but enough is enough.  I'm hoping for some really good progress to report in the next few days.

Oh, and I figured out the tv placement, but left my camera in my car and am way too lazy to go get it so it will have to wait for another day.  Thanks for all the input.  It really does help/validate my concerns.


  1. I love that vanity...and can't believe it is going in you daughter's bathroom! VERY lucky girl. I am looking forward to the updates. That is the best part of a reno...progress.

  3. Congratulations on your blogiversary. So glad to have found your blog and follow along this beautiful renovation. So what if it is taking a while? It is a process and in the end you'll be happy that you took your time to do it right instead of rushing to make hasty decisions :)
