So what happened to December?
We’re done with the renovation! Well, except for some landscaping in the spring, which is why the excavator is parked in our front yard…
But – we’re done, we’re done!
And it’s awesome.
Now… we have to put all the stuff away. And get rid of more stuff. And throw out more stuff. I still can’t park in the garage and that’s not a good thing. But we’ll get there.
I’m trying to sell the piano. Anyone want to buy a piano?
The last chore was getting the wood floors in the kitchen and the “porch” refinished. The contractor’s guys helped with hanging plastic and moving the fridge and the stove. We lived with no kitchen for four days – just before Christmas. It wasn’t fun. But the floors look wonderful.
We got the tree up that weekend – sort of decorated it (it’s pre-lit, thank God). Chris and Kyle arrived on Christmas Eve and the holiday was begun!
Loved having both of the sons here. They’re fun and you know, we like them!
Chris was able to get tickets to the Redskins/Dallas game in DC. So, all three guys left on a very snowy morning for the airport. Chris and Moffett went to DC. Kyle went back to KC. The Redskins won! Moffett last saw Redskins and Dallas in 1979, in Dallas, with Jim Barr, a Dallas fan… Redskins lost. Moffett had a great time and arrived home for New Year’s (which of course, we slept through).
We sort of miss the building guys. We’ve had them around since last December.
We don’t miss the noise, the trucks parked in the driveway and – the bills.
Ice was doing great on the lake earlier – but not so great this week. So, as much as I hate to say it, it needs to be colder. There’s Pond Hockey and the Ice Fishing Derby coming up and… they need ice. I saw today that it’s supposed to be 77 degrees in Richmond tomorrow. Good grief!
