When life gives you lemons....

You squeeze them for stress relief...and then try to save the juice, in order to make spiked lemonade to put in your coffee mug at work (no one will notice). Well, not exactly, but you get the gist. This remodeling thing can really take it's toll...I'm about ready to become a renter again.

So this week we made some great discoveries that I thought I'd share with you in my "remodeling is the pits" segment...


That good idea we had to keep the ugly brown carpet in, to protect the hardwood from our painting...turns out the previous owners didn't care as much as we did!


This is our most recent form of communication...we graffiti our own walls :) Well, not exactly...just the fireplace, which turns out is all brick in case you wondered...thanks hun!


And then cause I've lost the will to care, I almost walked out of the house like this...But, I still think I could have worked it!

**Yup, that's really me...Joni, this pic's for you girl :)**

I feel your pain on the renovation front. We were told there was wood underneath the marmoleum in the kitchen. Turns out the wood only went halfway across the room. So we have a delay while the mill is running a batch of wood to match the rest of the house. Good luck with everything! I would love to see more pictures. I hope it all turns out the way you want it.

How funny! I was just trying to read your blog and my son saw your photo. He said "Stop looking at pictures of people brushing their teeth." Ok! I'll stop now, I'll come back later! This was funny!
