|Happy SPAM day all-
Grunt- Way to make Mommy proud. Good work both of you. No tearing out of walls here. Just proper painting and some restoration to the things we can,but all will be well done.
Thor- Enjoy the SPAM and the dividends. Snowing and sunny here so due to meds I am unable to do much at this point,it is difficult to sand drywall with sunglasses.
Flika- Yes,I am well aware of how it is. That is why I can only send good thoughts and hope the worst of the pain passes quickly. House was built in 1925,wish they had left more of 1925 and much less of bad 1970's updates. My issue with it is before we invested in it and moved in in 2006 it had been a rental property for many years and the owners obviously did not bother to check on anyone they hired to do anything or the quality of work done. Roof was supposed to have been a complete tear-off and replacement in 1989,instead roofer may have charged for that but simply added 3rd layer of shingle. Now we will have to do it properly wether we stay or decide to sell.Other work done is the same quality,paint just slapped up to cover everything,beautiful hardwood trim painted over that can not be restored properly,beautiful leaded glass removed even in places it could and should have stayed,makes me want to cry. At least we will be going with more traditional colors,found a paint that matches the black cherry stain still left on some of the doors and wood perfectly,more traditional ceiling fan,paint colors,and the like,and we do have all of the original door knobs the cut glass and brass that look like gems,so all will be well when we finish.
Bunny- for the new wheels. What make and model?
Hoping everyone has a great day.
Mika and Kai have officially lodged a protest about the remodel. They do not like the furniture being out of place,the unusual noises and odd activities,or the disruption to their normal routine.Mika gets stressed when we change out the snow shovel for the broom,this is driving her crazy,and Kai is sick of missing his afternoon nap on the bed,he wants all activity to come to a halt so he can enjoy his typical afternoon nap.
The little people are coming to spend the day tomorrow. Mommy has been told that they must leave all of their little germs and viruses at home as we no longer wish to be sick with so much work to do.
