Fall back an hour this morning...an extra hour of sleeping in, but seriously, I'm still awake at the usual time!
It was a busy day for me yesterday. I got all my floors washed, and I do them the old fashion way...on my hands and knees. I never feel like my floors are really clean unless I do get down to do them. Laundry all done, then I found a bunch more of my son's that he had left in the bedroom closet. That's done now too. My cold store room is finally all organized. I even put out a couple of my snowmen decorations.
I headed out to the registry office to renew my driver's license, only to find out that their computer system was down all across Alberta and they had no idea when it would come back up. I'll have to try again next week.
Today we are heading out to the flooring store to price out what it is going to cost us to replace the carpet in the bedrooms, hallway and stairs and to buy some additional hardwood to match the left over we have and do the family room. I was really pushing for hardwood everywhere, but the stairs are a real issue and Garry really wants to keep them carpeted, so we will. He is still in Reno mode and raring to go, so maybe we will get these projects completed over the winter months. We are going to try to get the rest of the painting done while we can still open up windows temporarily to air the house. Not much left to do, the stairwell, hall, master bedroom and bath. We would like to at least get the horrible old carpets pulled up in the bedrooms before Christmas, even if I have to paint the plywood underneath so it is clean looking over Christmas that will work for me. The carpets are in bad shape and really not worth cleaning again.
Still some fun times ahead. *grin*
A hubby who is willing to take on the reno projects with my help. Certainly cuts costs considerably.
No snow as yet.
Extra hour to my day today.
Moving ahead with getting some pricing for things relating to yet more renos.
Life...it is just plain wonderful to be alive.
Have a wonderfully blessed day,
