I know I say it just about every year, but this year is the year that we’re going to finish our renovations. I think the problem the other years is that I was the one saying it, but my husband wasn’t the least bit into doing it.
This year I think he might actually be starting to get the idea of just how fed up I’m feeling. Plus, hey … I tend to do more than half the work anyway … so what’s he worried about?
Just to prove that he’s starting to get the picture he actually tried giving his brother in law a phone call to see if he could come and help us one weekend. Our brother in law was on the computer looking for new hot tub cover at BeyondNice.com when my husband reached him … I swear he lives in his hot tub – honest, that can’t be good for you to be in it as much as he is!
We need to finish renovating our living room dining room. That means finishing our ceiling – which could mean putting up those tin ceiling tiles that I bought and prepped … oh … 10 years ago! We also need to finish one part of the flooring, plus add molding and quarter round. We also doing have a wall at the basement opening … yeah … big gap. and I’ve been living this way for years! I hate it and I can’t stand when we have quests or if anyone just “drops in”. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it. So I want our renovations finished this summer … even if it means putting up a dry wall ceiling instead of the very expensive tin ceiling I purchased. If that’s what it takes to finish the job that’s what it takes.
You might remember that about a month ago or so I wrote a post complaining about how much noise my neighbors were making and how I was seriously thinking of selling our house as a result of how totally exhausted they were making me … well finally finishing or renovations would accomplish a few things … one – it would give us a little noise revenge for neighbors on both sides of us actually, and two if things did get bad enough noise wise that we do decide to sell we’ll have a finished house to sell … the way things are right now we could sell but we wouldn’t get quite as much as we would if we finished the living room dining room the way I’d like to finish them.
