7th month reno-versary

It has been a big week at the old house. We have painted walls, the kitchen cabinets are being installed, the ceilings are being repaired and painted and the new stairs are being built. It is unbelievable how much as been accomplished just in the last few weeks.

We are tired.

7 months of working almost every evening

7 month of working almost every weekend

People ask….is it worth it.

Ummmmmmmmm yep. It’s worth every minute. Now don’t get me wrong. There have been many tears. Tears from me of course. Tears of tiredness. Tears of wondering how we are we  ever get it all done. Tears from time demands.

Steve and I never fight. Argue, Yes. Disagree, Yes.  House renovation is stressful on the best of marriages. Thank goodness he really loves me.
