More Projects...

We are getting there. The wood floor has a few hours of work left. I spent all day Thursday and some of Friday morning laying the tile in our bathroom. I broke 5 pieces along the way which set me back in the supply category so I had to buy another box. Darn it. I was doing so well too. Actually I think I miscalculated from the get-go and then breaking 5 meant I was definitely cutting it way too close so I feel better with a little extra. My super special tile arrived yesterday, it is special because it was such a dilemma trying to get it, I ordered it over a month ago and then they told me they couldn't do it, I had a minor melt-down and passed the problem to Mr. Fix-It, that would be our contractor, he made the calls set the people straight and 2 weeks later, I have my tile. I am a very happy person now if I can just get it up on the walls the way I want it, life will be good. I have designed a wonderful concept but now making it reality is the tricky part. I'm hoping Ben is done with the floor in time to really help me with this part of tiling. Although I feel confident with the tile saw I am not so sure about putting tile on a vertical surface.
Other projects for the upcoming days are painting doors, concrete countertops (grinding two that are done and building forms and pouring another one), ordering light fixtures (just been putting off spending the money), and keeping kids happy (that is an on-going project).
The boys are taking a shower, Anna is reading all the words she knows and naming letters as I type. While it is kind of neat to hear her say I, my, and the as we go the moving of the mouse all over the screen while she does it makes it hard to stay focused. So on that note I will sign off and wish you all a wonderful Saturday. I can't wait to share our home with you all.

I am not personally very proud and excited that my daughter is not only a great mother, extremely smart, and a very pretty Irish Lass, but she can lay tile, paint door ways, juggle many schedules and keep up her blog so we can all enjoy her triumphs and mishaps.
Love you babe
