Taking a break...

Sorry, but there will be no pictures in this post, so some of you may want to pass on this one.

I'm just sitting at the computer, procrastinating. So I figure I'll be some what productive and update the ol' blog. Bob and I are in the middle of re-organizing the house. This is a project we've been talking about for months, but now we're finally getting the time to do it. Bob had a couple of extra days off of work so it's worked out nicely. Claire has been more than cooperative, so we've been able to get a bunch done. Well... at least it seems like a ton. But we still have a ton to do. I was explaining the process to Sara and I said that yesterday we were like.. 25% done. Today, we're like... 27%.

We decided to switch up the layout of quite a few rooms. The 'bonus room' is now our office/workspace, the old dinningroom/livingroom is now just a big livingroom, the familyroom/breakfast nook, is now a dinning room/sitting area, and the old office is now a play room for Claire. The only thing that looks partway done is the play room, and that's because - for the most part - it's empty. Currently we're working on finding a place for everything that was in the office. Which is actually a HUGE job considering you could barely walk into the room before all this started. Bob has been doing a ton of filing, and I'm finally organizing all my scrapbook paper. (but I still have all my ribbon, so I think I have my work cut out for me)

Our goal is to have this all done by Monday morning when the installer comes to take the CARPET OUT OF ALL THE BATHROOMS! I'll be so glad when we have NORMAL floors in there. We're skipping the tile option (too expensive) and we're doing lenolium. (not sure how to spell that) Its nice stuff, really hardy, 'tear proof' or something like that, but it's also a really good price. The next project will be getting the bathrooms either re-painted, or wallpapered, or something. But that's for another time... no rush on that.

Well, Miss Claire woke up and its now time for her to eat dinner, so I shall bring this post to a close. When everything gets finished and filed away, I'll post a few pictures. If it's not up by Monday, then you know we didn't reach our goal.
