Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says, "Oh shit! She's up!"

It's coming along!

The floor guy was here last week and confirmed what I'd told Dean before, that he has to refinish the entire floor on the main level, not just "patch in" the new floor. That means we have to empty the main floor living area (living room and dining room). We had been considering selling our huge sectional, but now that we have to clear out everything and don't really have a place to store it, it's a good time to sell! Gotta love craigslist when you need to get rid of stuff quickly! We also sold our range and dishwasher.

So, the agenda today is to get the main floor packed up, which is a good time to throw stuff out that we shouldn't be hanging onto in the first place!

The sheetrock is up, so that just needs taping/sanding. When that's done the floor guy is ready to do his thing, which includes patching kitchen floor, sanding entire main level then poly it all. When that's done???? THE CABINETS GO IN! Not excited at all. No...not at all.

Somehow, on some level, I know that when I pack up all this stuff, it's gonna take until June to get it all put back.

WOW! That's what i call progress! Are you gonna hold a yard sale?

NO yard sales! I go to them once in awhile, but I detest having them. That's what craigslist is for, so I don't have to. LOL We made $500 this weekend on stuff we had listed on craigslist. Good enough for me!
