Crazy Busy!!

Man Oh Days!!!!!  You know how people sometimes say "I need to go back to work so I can get some rest"?  Well, I need Art to go back to work so I can get some rest!!


We have been insanely busy around here.  After Tropical Storm Lee came and did his damage, we've had to re-do three rooms:  the master bedroom, the little office attached and the accompanying bathroom.  Art has refinished all the plaster walls and the sheetrocked walls.  Actually he's not done yet in the bedroom.  The office and bathroom have been painted.  My job is the trim, or woodwork.  Between the three rooms, there are seven windows, six doors, six door frames, miles of baseboard and three shelves.  (Our windows are six over six.  That means that the top portion of the window has six panes and the bottom portion has six panes.  They take forever to paint!!  Just thought I'd throw that in!)


I still have two doors and three windows and about a half of mile of baseboard left to do.


In between, we've been cleaning out anything which doesn't move....the summer kitchen (yes, MORE), the barn, the attic.  And, we've been re-stacking fire wood so it's prettier, so to speak.  Hauling stuff out of the attic.


The roofers come tomorrow to start putting a new roof on the house.  So, we need to go up and cover everything that's in the attic.  Which isn't really that much, thank goodness.


As soon as the roof is done, we'll have new carpet installed the three rooms mentioned above.  Then the house can go on the market.  Yay!!  Although I DREAD (yes, in capital letters) the thought of having to keep the house sparkling and shiny, I am truly done.  I've had enough of restoring, remodeling, painting, stacking, carrying fire wood, building fires, stripping, sanding, etc.


I'm ready for a NEW house!!  With a thermostat instead of a woodstove.  With central air.  With a modern kitchen.  With real closets.  You get the picture!

 Art goes back to work Tuesday.  While I'll still be painting, I will no longer have to keep up with his crazy pace.  I can work at MY pace.  For a couple of days, I may even work at a pace even slower than my pace.  Just cuz!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

P.S.  Jewelry can be found here!
