Today is an exciting day at our cottage, not that I’m currently there to experience it.  For now, I’m stranded at a local hotel.  Why?  Today, BeachBoy is putting the finish on the floors!

Here is what they looked like when I left this morning.  I escaped just before he broke out the fumes. (He looked adorable in his mask, by the way, and I’m certain he was playing DarthVader.)

(It’s worth noting that this is the first time the breakfast room window has ever (no, really….ever) been opened.  BeachBoy broke out the crow bar because he was so desperate for ventilation.  I’m pretty sure it’s ruined, but it’s as old as the house, so…..)

(This isn’t where the fridge will stay, but it’s the best he could move it on his own.  (I’m of no help at the moment.)  For now, he’ll finish all around it.  Once the floors cure, he’ll move it and finish that area.  Classy.  But, we’re in a pinch.  The fridge actually goes on the left hand wall.)

For me, this has been the most exciting step so far.  I think it’s because I know that once the floors have cured, we can start putting in CABINETS.  Oh, happy day!

I’ve braced myself for the fact that the details themselves won’t be done.  For now, I’ll just be thrilled to have doorless cabinets in the room.  That’s so much more than this momma could ever have imagined.

34+ weeks….time is running short, and there’s a house to reclaim and a nursery to start!  Really, who needs cabinet doors and trim?? Not me!

This is life.

Oh, admit it. You know you’re totally jealous that my whole house is crammed into two rooms.  I mean, really, why wouldn’t you be?  😉

I’ll be back soon with the fun house photos I promised.  Until then, I’ll be sweeping and dusting, and dusting and sweeping, and…
