(I started this last Friday but, once again, time got away from me…) As I write this, a crew of three is installing new carpet up the stairs and in the loft and hallway of my house. Which meant the boys and I were pulling up old carpet and padding, pulling out about a bazillion staples and vacuuming up dust and debris last night. And that was kind of a typical day lately.
I’ll post some of the pictures of home improvement things we’ve been doing mostly ourselves, with the help of one of my brothers and sometimes my stepson and grandson.
Getting a house you’ve lived in for 27 years ready to sell takes some work. And my dear hubby was a bit of an electronic packrat, so going through all that stuff is a little daunting. At one point the boys were saying they found some stuff that they thought was to make a bomb! (That I did recognize and part was an AB controller hubby was going to use to sync the Christmas lights and another part was handheld pieces for a drinking game!) So even though it’s been a little sad, we’ve had some laughs, too.
Youngest and I are officially ensconced at JP’s house and I’m meeting with my realtor tomorrow to put my house on the market. It’s too big and kind of lonely now with just the two of us and no dogs.
The picture is from the kitchen renovation. New countertops and backsplash, original cabinets. What do you think?
