I'm so tired....
I have a lot going on right now.
we are having a new furnace put in....or something! We currently have a gas furnace....which I love. Because gas heat....mmmm....keeps you some kind of warm in the winter. But it's 18 years old, we need a new one. So Johnny boy wants this heat pump thing with the gas back up heat. I guess the gas kicks in when it gets a certain temp outside....or something. I don't know. Everyone seems to recommend it so we'll see. All I know is I better stay warm this winter. Oh wait...I have hot flashes to keep me warm!
Anyway, they are installing that on Monday. So between right now and Monday, we have a section of the garage that needs to be cleaned out.
Then the following week we are having the hard wood floors re-finished......finally! But this also means a lot of work. We have to totally empty out the living room, dining room and foyer. I have already finished emptying the china cabinet.....and the bookshelves in the living room. But then I was thinking....I need to paint the living room and it's probably better to paint that before they do the floors. So yes, I am some sort of painting martyr and I'm going to try and get that done this weekend. BUT.......I had to strip the wallpaper border first. And that's the pic......I'm trying to strip wallpaper but Maddox is climbing up on the step stool with me and hanging onto my legs. whew.....I almost finished and my sweet son finished the rest for me. Oh wait........he did that because he wanted some money. Oh well, it got done!!
and on top of all of this chaos.......we are leaving for vacation in something like 10 days!
but just think how nice it's all going to look for the holidays!
