Beautiful hardwood flooring!

The wood floors are IN! So beautiful! So glad it's over. It was very noisy and sooooooo dusty. The kitchen is open to the dining room and you can write your name on any surface in there. Fortunately I had been warned and cleared all the countertops.
They are coming back this morning to clean up and put my furniture back. Yay!
The installers were here for 12 hours. I sat in front of my computer almost the entire time. I was as tired at the end of the day as they were.
Poor Rosie is running around trying to figure out what happened. She spent yesterday hiding in a tiny space between boxes in the closet - terrified.
The appearance of the house has changed so much and it's spectacular. Photos later.
I ordered pizza delivered for the workers and had two slices myself. Had them bring me a grilled chicken salad and that was my dinner. This morning I weigh the same as before. I was afraid I'd sit here and munch but seem to have avoided that.
The wood samples I saw when I chose the color of wood looked a lot lighter. I was really worried that I had not found the right color and had chosen one too light. Now that it's in, it's a beautiful honey oak and matches my fireplace mantle and cabinest perfectly!
I'm so glad this is over! I'm so glad I had it done!
