First, Happy New Year...a little late.
You see, I'm on vacation.
I did suggest this year,
since neither of us needed any new toys and the Puppy has plenty,
that instead of Christmas gifts for each other,
we go ahead and replace our 20 year old carpet with vinyl flooring.
That means the Dining Room and Hall get a facelift and
my sinuses will not miss having carpet.
It seemed like a good idea at the time.
After moving two rooms of furniture into "other" places in the house,
Hubby and I pulled up the carpet and padding...
and made the requisite trip to the dump.
Then while he pried those danged spiked carpet strips up,
I sat on the floor removing staples from what appears to be 1930s linoleum.
That was week one.
Today, after waiting for 4 days, the Flooring guys are here.
So currently there are pieces of furniture stacked all over the house,
including all the contents of a china hutch, pie safe, and 2 bookcases.
I'm "secluded" in my office because I have no access
to the "middle" of my house...
if I want something from the kitchen, it's out the front door,
around the house to the kitchen door. Then repeat.
I'll share the photos when we're done.
Because Mr. Fix-it Hubby has decided that WE will
do the molding trim work instead of the flooring guys.
That means I'll have just enough vacation left to
get the furniture and it's contents back in place
before I return to work on Jan. 9th.
That is if Ponita keeps the door shut in Canada.
It's been like Spring here all week but Friday, a cold
front approaches with a chance of snow.
I don't know about you
but Mother Nature has been a little grumpy lately.
After a 1000 year flood in 2015 and 2 hurricanes in 2016,
I'm not sure I want any "snow flurries".....
she's liable to bury us in 3 feet of snow.
Remember, this is the South.
3 inches of snow can bring us to an abrupt halt.
Thinking good thoughts....
and sending them your way.
