Twas the night before Thanksgiving....


Oh how our plans change... Our son only had school for one day this week as the parent-teacher conferences are going on (by the way, ours went great - a great brainstorming session too) so I scheduled his time off with many activities....mostly playdates. Unfortunately, today's playdate with his best friend had to be canceled due to illnesses. So we have snapped into action to help his disappointment turn to productivity and we are gung ho today. As you know we are living in a house of constant remodel...as many older homes are... and we are doing much of the work ourselves. Our current project is the laundry room/mud room. This has been going on since September and we are finally reaching a great stopping point. We got the remaining cabinets put in this past weekend and part of the new subfloor. So today I just got the last of the new subfloor installed (we'll do the new floor in the spring) and we are defrosting the freezer before we move that into the room. N is having a great time scraping the ice off the inside and seeing it drop to the bottom with a crash - who knew that would be exciting? Next, we'll move the freezer in, make a pecan pie for tomorrow, return everything to the storage room, clear out the family room to ready it for paint and a new ceiling fan (this weekend's project), and get out our Advent calendar. All of this comes in anticipation of N's birthday party (and Grandma's visit). So we're taking today's change/bummer as feul for action.....moving forward and having fun doing it.

I gotta tell you. I'm jealous of that front loading washing machine. LOL

Our old ones were over 14 years old and really shaky so we decided we really needed an update. I love them!

It's fabulous! After seeing your laundry room I told K about my cabinet envy, and I think we'll go for it next year. I could put in a serious amount and it would be life changing! I wonder if I could bribe your hubby into helping....is there enough beer and pizza in the world to make him want to hang cabinets ever again?!?
