It's a floor!

Look it's maple! My favorite flavor!  Now of course, I need a painter, and I am fretting about where the furniture should go. I had a painter, but things are so bad that he layed off his guys, and he's painting a house by himself right now.  So, not available to work.. So I will look more, and he did give me an estimate so that I knew where the ballpark was.  The new sump pump guy was supposed to drop off a quote tonight, but maybe he meant tomorrow?  No, the homeowners insurance did not cover it.  I am a wee bit stressed myself, but I will get a maple flavored room out of it.

It has been like an ant farm here, all day.  The kids and I have been carrying things down 2 flights to the maple room, from the former bedroom, and then carrying things from the garage up two flights from  the former-bedroom-future-TV-room.  When DH got home from work he and my son carried the dressers down the stairs.  Amazing, I have a son old enough to carry furniture.

Once I get over the dust bunny shame- every time we move a piece of furniture there is a whole herd of dust bunnies- and I get over the panic of figuring out where the new furniture goes- and I get over the exhaustion of all the carrying and climbing- well, then it will be real nice. I'm grateful that this is the dilemma, don't get me wrong, but it is a little nerve wracking!

Tomorrow I fold fabric and put it on shelves. That will be fun!

Moving is exhausting if it is from overseas or one floor...folding fabric is great therapy though! (BTW the floor looks wonderful!)

One of those awful blessings where things come out so much better in the end. (I guess your boys aren't in strollers anymore...)

It's lovely and LEVEL which is the really important part. What color are you going to paint the room?

What a pretty floor! What a lot of work! It's going to feel so good when it's all done :- )

Your blue shelter quilt turned out great. Those circle/flowers make wonderful sashing!
