Change arises from destruction, or, I am doing better today [Sep. 27th, 2010|03:54 pm]
Zoethe
Week Two of household chaos is upon us, but I am less wigged out than I was at the end of Week One. I think a lot of the Week One wigging arose from two things:

1.) Allergies

2.) Needing to find a place to put all the crap while this home improvement project is underway.

Well, allergies got better over the weekend - though I expect there will be a return of them when the sanding and refinishing starts. And the needing to find places to store stuff has sort of come to an end - the only thing left are really large items, like couches and beds, and they will just have to go be in the way of something else. For instance, the top of my dining room table is blocking off all the lower cupboards in front of my sink.

Oh well, I can't do anything about that for a couple days.

In other words, I've reached Resignation.

We've managed to cobble together enough room to work in the basement, though not terribly efficiently. But we have the printer working and I can get to my files without moving too many things around. I can get through another week of this.

So Monday is okay. We'll see how the rest of the week goes....

It will all be worth it in the end. The paint is looking fabulous and you will love your new floors. I was never much of a hardwood floor person myself until our new house... I can't remember what it was like to have to vacuum constantly! Sweeping up and running the shop vac once in awhile keeps it all clean :)

Right now everything is in even more uproar as they move stuff around to make room to pull up carpet, and my bedroom is covered in a fine dusting of sanded paint. I am back to hiding in the basement.

Watch some episodes of Hoarders. They'll make you feel like you have the most uncluttered and neat home on the planet by comparison! ;-D

Was. The evening is pressing close. But I will survive.
