I'm Here!

But I am buried under a thin, annoying layer of dry wall dust. :)

The remodel project has continued to go well but I think you would be terribly bored with pictures of walls with dry wall sheets and now textured walls.

We met with the contractor today and Dave and I will paint the two rooms tonight and tomorrow and then Dave will lay the Bruce hardwood laminate over the weekend.This is the one we picked.












The contractor will come back on Tuesday to finish the baseboards, door casings, crown moulding and put the bathroom together: vanity, mirrors, counter tops, sinks, faucets,lights and casings.

My main computer has been unplugged. It was hilarious. The dry wall guy asked me to move it out of the way so he could spray the texture. I just started pulling every plug I could get my hands on and a few days later James asked me why I pulled ALL the plugs. "Um, cuz, I just did? I was in a hurry and I didn't know what to do." James quickly turned on enough equipment to get our remote lap tops running. I'm so glad the kids are smarter than I am.

I should be able to post some pictures of the newly painted rooms in a few days and then by next week I'll post pictures of the new floors.

All else is well but I would appreciate prayers on my behalf, not relating to remodeling but much bigger issues that are heavy on my heart.

Well, Janet, *I* wouldn't be bored with your drywall pictures. I just posted some of my own.
You are nearly finished, aren't you?
It has been a while since I visited, so I'll have to go back in your archives and see your remodel right from the beginning.

Drywall dust is my nemesis. You will be finding it on ledges and in cracks and crevices for months. It is relentless.

NICE laminate- I love the rich color.

I'll pray. I wish bigger issues could be fixed with a bit of drywall and paint. God's solutions are infinitely better but not always as immediately apparent. (I think I grew up reading too many little homilies, now they seem to sprout out of my fingertips!)
