This has been a busy week! We began our work this week and we are exhausted! We have a deadline to get the flooring in the living room, dining room, kitchen, and hallway by the end of this week. So, we got busy cleaning, scraping the ugly ceiling and painting. Today, we had an awesome group of friends and family come over for a "painting party". We had fun and got a lot of work done. We couldn't have done it without their help. We now have a very colorful house!! I'm trying to get adjusted to all the colors, but in the end I think I will love it. April painted a blessing on our floor, then all the girls wanted to paint their names. This will be in the house covered by our new floor. I'm glad they were able to leave their mark on the house! We still have lots of painting to do, but we should be ready to get the flooring in most of the rooms. I'll update when that's done. The house is starting to shape up. Being a homeowner is exhausting!! But well worth it!
