I'm done.

Just. Done.

No more home improvement. Ever. Again. (that's a total lie)

We got a new furnace and water heater installed today. I went 2 days without hot water. One of those days (yesterday) was filled with ripping out old drywall, hanging new drywall, installing new flooring, and lots and lots of joint compound. 4 hours of sleep last night. The next day was filled with early waking, supervising, problem solving, and no sleep. It's 11pm. Why am I still awake? Well, the plumber just left 30 minutes ago and I refuse to sleep without a hot shower. 10 more minutes.

We've agreed to a one month moratorium on home improvement. This will be after we finish painting so we can reinstall the washing machine, that is. I can only let it sit in my kitchen for so long.


  1. Just a month? Shauna's saying we're done for the year once this kitchen is done...

  2. Your kitchen looks awesome! We still have unfinished cosmetic work that needs to be, well, finished. *sigh* So much for the kitchen remodel. I just don't think I could handle it. :)

  3. Next time give me a call. I'll help you as much as I can. I'm a master mudder on drywall. :-)
