What’s up

Two weeks ago we finally decided to start our bathroom remodel project.  I think we have been talking about it for the last 5 years and finally came up with a plan that we both like.  We had our finances in line so nothing was holding us back.   I forgot to get a picture right before we started but this is about 1 hour or so into the project.  IMG_3664  Because of the project I think every room in my house is in utter chaos right now.  There are sheets, towels and blankets sitting downstairs, toothpaste and toothbrushes sitting in the kitchen, boys cloths in our room or the girls room (we had to get into the attic which is through the boys closet).  All of our storage in the garage is scattered around on the cement floor so that we could get access to the plumbing.  The list goes on.

We are getting our city electricity buried in our neighborhood so our yard is dug up and there are electric lines lying around.  There are more trenches to come in the front yard and back yard but at least through our yard is done.  We will not have power tomorrow for an hour while they hook up our house to the underground wire.  As soon as the wire gets buried and we can get rid of the wire that comes through our roof, we will patch up our roof and get it completely reroofed to fix all of the hail damage caused in a storm last year. IMG_3776 We also had to build a pad area for our camper to call home in our backyard.  This project is actually done but in the process I did manage to smash my finger really bad.  It happened about 2 weeks ago and now about 50% of my fingernail is detached from my finger.  It doesn’t feel good.


We started soccer practice.  Ted is the coach of about 10 players.  Although Ted was gone for work last week and I coached the kids.  All the kids seem to be having a blast, hopefully it will continue through the season.IMG_3676 To top it all off, a drunk driver took out our only vehicle that fit all of us the weekend we started our remodeling project~2 weekends ago.  So we have been car shopping along with sink shopping.  Not so hot on the budget this month.  And yes, if you look at the picture below, we did have it parked correctly on the road.  Our van got pushed that much.  And if you look at the front tire, that is actually the other cars whole bumper complete with licence plate stuck underneath our car and partially in our front door.
