You'd think I'd want to spend my last couple days of freedom relaxing.  Instead I thought it would be good fun to spend 14 hours working on my house.  Unfortunately, there's not a whole lot to show for those 14 hours of work...  Not yet, at least! 

I got started at 7am finishing up some sanding that's been an ongoing project for about three days.  Making things uglier rather than prettier is not very motivating, and it took a LONG time to finish that particular stage of the project.  After the sanding was done, I had quite the mess on my hands.  Like, dust in various rooms and on all surfaces so of a mess.  It took me close to 2 hours to clean it up enough to move onto the next step in project: kitchen.

After a trip to Lowe's for a couple things, I started painting.  It was all detail work, which took FOREVER!  And I can't even tell how it looks because it was dark by the time I finished, so the lighting was all bad.  And it looks pretty sloppy right now because I have a whole lot more paint to add to the room. 

BUT, I got over the sanding hurdle, and things are looking better rather than worse!  I've stalled in my unpacking because I need places to put things, so hopefully when the painting is done and the rooms are all reassembled, I'll be able to unpack and actually settle in!  All before July 1...

Doesn't really sound like progress, does it?  Well it is!  Stay tuned for pictures of the results.  I just thought I'd let you know I'm actually making progress, even though I'm not posting pictures!  I'll have a few rooms read to show you soon!

Tomorrow maybe...
