hit the floor
We're starting a big, messy new-floor project today. By "we" I mean Rick... He and our handy pal Peter will do all the work while I try to ignore the chaos as much as possible. Of course I know that chaos is "where great dreams begin". I have the print on my wall and the tattoo on my arm. Still... I really hate living in the midst of home renovations. It's different than construction because it first requires destruction and all the surprises that come along with it. But this is a necessary project that has to be done before we can sell the house. The kitchen, hall, and bathroom floors are simply too hideous to hide. We have cracking 70's linoleum with tape holding it together, beat up wood, and nasty, nasty carpet that just can't be cleaned again. Who in the world would put carpet in a bathroom? And why did we live with it for almost seven years? Ick!!!
Rick's on his way to Lowe's in Espanola now. I'm on my way to the studio, where I plan to hide out as much as possible while all this takes place. Wish us luck!
