Mondays are bad but a Monday after an unexpected long weekend is even worse. I’m riding shotgun on the struggle bus today for sure, anyone else? We got hit with some nice wintry weather Thursday night which lasted into Saturday thanks to winter storm Jonas. I guess I didn’t technically get a long weekend but I got to work from home on Friday so it felt like a long weekend. Bravo to Mother Nature for that but the pretty white stuff also ruined our plan of going to Charlotte on Saturday so it wasn’t all great.
This is the one time of year that the murder shed actually looks kind of cute.
Since we couldn’t actually leave the house on Saturday, we decided to get some work done on the house instead. I wish I could tell you we did the living room floors but we didn’t have enough underlayment (I just checked the tracking and it should be here today) so instead we decided to rip up the parquet in the entry and put new floors there instead. You’re not crazy, by the way, the entry floors weren’t in the original scope of work but neither was the carpet in the study and that didn’t stop us from ripping it out and putting down laminate last weekend.
We’re in pretty good shape in the living room. I finished up the last little bit of painting yesterday and Kyle switched out the old almond colored outlets with new white ones. We’ll start ripping the carpets up this week and once the new floors are in, we’ll just need to put in baseboards and move everything back in. Here’s a little teaser photo I put on instagram about a week ago.
Here’s to hoping we can wrap this up by the end of the month!
