Floor Update: Getting My Living Room Back

Stop the Presses!

This is a special report. Last night, Bruce and N. got the living room floor done.
Since Rosh Hashanah, we have had living room furniture in the dining room and in our bedroom and sitting room.

Tonight, with the aid of Bruce's long-suffering friend from work, the massive entertainment center will be put back--right where Bruce is sitting in this picture. He is working on the plate to cover the area where speaker wires will be coming from the wall.

I am really, really happy that we will have the living room back for Thanksgiving and Hannukah--which starts in two weeks.

I think the guys did a wonderful job, but it has all taken quite a bit longer than we expected. Much of that was due to the fall holidays.

We still have two offices and N.'s bedroom to do. However, we have decided to take a break until after Hannukah and the UNM semester's end before we start moving furniture for the next room. We really need a few weeks with an intact house and some free weekends.

Putting in our own floor is true sweat equity!

Congrats on getting the floor done - My hubby has finished the front of our house, BUT still needs to get working on the bedrooms!

HSB? Can't keep my alphabet straight, but I meant the Homeschool Blog Awards.
