Remodel

That’s my excuse in one word for not putting anything on here for a while.

Dan and I decided we needed to work on the house before Christmas.  There were several things that needed attention outside, such as painting the garage door, treating the deck,  just regular maintenance which we were able to do during the late fall.

The one room in the house that we haven’t addressed for years is our bedroom. I know we  aren’t the only ones who have remodeled a bedroom—we have before ourselves.  Maybe because we weren’t as organized going into it, but this project seemed to disrupt our lives for way too long.

Everything in the bedroom had to be moved to the living room.  All carpet torn out, closets remodeled (which meant clothes removed), ceiling and walls cleaned and painted, clean and oil furniture, put together a new bed frame….  We also learned  we aren’t as young as we used to be.  No ten hour days like back in the day.  Still, it was fun and I am so pleased with the outcome.

Then there was Christmas and all our family came home. 

So, writing my blog just seemed to be put on the bottom of the to-do list.  I am back, though.  And, I’ve got lots to write about—actually I’ve kept a list of topics.  Of course a few pictures too.  So, please stay with me.  I have two weeks to cover everything in the past and then there might be a little travel coming.

Tomorrow—my awesome new bed frame!

I've lived in this house for 28+ years, and I have STILL to paint the master bedroom.
