Sorry to have made you wait for this post, especially since so many of you have commented about how much you enjoy them. Believe me when I say I miss blogging. We seem to be using up every single one of our 24 hours and still its not enough.
We are losing touch with the "real world" and slipping into our own reality. Its for a set amount of time and the gratification of hard work and the unity of a common purpose, watching a dream unfold is rewarding.
Even though we're not doing what most would consider to be fun, it is. We both like to work hard, and we are definitely doing that. :) We spend much of our days in the same breathing space and sometimes we get minutes here and there of uninterrupted time to talk. A little flirting may or may not be going on throughout the days as well.
STILL the electrician is doing wire stuff. It makes things seem like they are going slow, but its a perfect time to be dealing with it, while we can easily open up walls and floors and ceilings.
I felt awful doing it, but I asked Shaun to move a wall he had just built, in the spot I had asked him to put it. See the two skylights? When the room was open it made sense to me to put the wall right between the two. But when the wall was up, the window to the right (in the girls' bedroom) was too close to the new wall (duh!) and our master closet was too big. Without much grumbling, he moved the wall over to the left eight-ish inches. Much better!
I guess I've spent some time thinking about the dining room this week on Pinterest.
We have to do something different with the mantel in that room. Thinking I might like to have a non-painted wood mantel, doesn't need to be too fancy, but bulkier than whats there.
