We are still alive. I’ll update you with what’s going on here and intersperse it with some updated photos of our bedroom.
The Hubs does have a job again. It’s local, but it’s a temporary one, and that’s fine with us. We are still expecting to put the house up for sale when he finds a new job. (Thank you all for your thoughts and nice notes!)
We’ve been working on lots of things. From big things like replacing parts of the roof, to little things like caulking baseboards, and patching and repainting walls. We’re currently working on replacing the kitchen and mud room flooring, but that’s taking a while because we have to stop and fix a partially rotten sub-floor. None of it has been pretty enough to share, nor would it be particularly helpful information for you.
We’ve also been traveling and taking breaks for fun things lately too.
The major motivation for renovating the house for the last (nearly) 5 years was that afterwards, we would have a house we loved living in. So staying motivated to get the work done is much harder now, knowing we won’t get to enjoy the fruits of our labor. And frankly, not even knowing if the next owners will. They may walk in like we did and make a list of all the things they’d like to change and promptly undo all of our work.
We’re getting things done though…slowly but surely. I’ll be back later in the week with more projects!
