Postings might be a little less frequent for a few days. We're pulling up tile in the guest house and then will be laying new flooring (that laminate wood-look stuff). We also hope to have the plumbers out Friday to put in a new toilet, sink, and faucet. Instead of replacing the countertop, which we discovered is actually a piece of kitchen countertop because of its measurements, I'm going to paint the existing formica. There's still a long list of things to do, including hanging new blinds, finishing the trimwork, and painting.
It's times like these that I wish we had a bunch of friends that would exchange back-breaking labor for steaks on the grill and beer. It's just Alan and I right now, and I'm proud to report that we haven't thrown a hammer or putty knife at each other yet. Yet.
