twist and shout

Because I just never shut up

Putting Humpty Back Together Again February 19, 2010

Filed under: life — kathy @ 3:23 pm

I ran into a pal today who was out walking her cute little dog. She asked me, “So, is the remodel getting to you, yet?”

My answer was, surprising even to me: “Not really.” But honesty, the thing that’s getting me through it is the thought that at the end of all this dust is something that’ll be (I hope) pretty cool. Here’s a peek or two at where the project is so far.

The view from the door...

They’re working on the limestone floors right now. Counters and finishing the bathroom next week. I hope.

...another angle.

Actually, the only thing that’s making me a little insane is the dust. I was warned that it would get everywhere, and whoever told me that was not kidding. But even little dust piles on the cereal boxes and the Progresso soup cans inside my makeshift guest room pantry won’t last forever. Does dust have any nutritional value? Hmm.

And another distraction… just 7 days until Stitches West. Well, actually 6 days. Since I’m registered for a couple of classes, I get to go on Thursday evening for a preview of the Market. That could be a little dangerous, in fact. 🙂
