Monday Mayhem – It’s a mess ’round here

Posted on Sep 8, 2014 by Margaret Ethridge   4 Comments | Posted in Blog

Sorry I don’t have anything fun to blog about, we’ve been up to our ears in renovation. We’re finally gutting the room upstairs:


My handy hubby has been wearing his tool belt and putting this stuff to good use:


I’m his lovely assistant. My job is to hold things, help him measure, and listen to him cuss. The only thing I can tell you conclusively is that we do not have a wall in this house that is square and true. But we will have walls.



And one day soon, I’ll have a lovely new office/guest room.

In the meantime, I have dust. Lots and lots of dust.

What’s new in your world?

    *dusts you off* You know what? I bet there are very few homes out there with perfectly square walls. The important thing is that the work is getting done and you’ll have a new shrine in no time! 🙂

    Even new houses don’t have square walls. You both have gotten a LOT done already. Dream of paint colors and planning the lay out of the room while holding things. My week will be filled with hanging curtains and purchasing carpets. Which would be more fun if it were for my home. Alas, it’s not, but I don’t have to pay for any of it either. Good luck with the rest of the renovation!

    I like shades of blues or greens. You know just in case I visit and want to use the guest room. It is coming along nicely. Job well done, you two. Right now I have a quiet house as everyone is working or at school. I am prepping stuffed bell peppers for dinner and then it will be relaxing time. The birthday party was a resounding success and the ‘princess’ made out like a bandit. It’s her picture day today and she is wearing the outfit we bought her. (the kilt-y looking skirt 😉

    I’m impressed you have drywall up already! Well done! Square walls are a fable, I believe. Like unicorns.
