A while back we started in on a fairly quick and fairly simple home improvement project.
Simple. Ha. Quick. Ha ha.
This simple project of replacing all the flooring in our home was expected to take four or five months. Approximately 15 months later we are finished. When putting the flooring in we figured we would get at least a years worth of enjoyment out of the new tile and Brazilian redwood floors throughout our house before moving. You see the plan was always to put our house on the market in the spring of 2012.
With the impending arrival of a sweet little baby this summer we decided to push the sale of our house up a few months and we planned to list it February 1. The surprise came when over two weeks before even listing our house we had a request for a showing. From that lone showing came an offer which we have accepted. We’ve also managed to find a home we love. So now we’re also under contract to buy a home as well. All of this is wonderful, especially since we’ll have plenty of time to move and get settled before the baby is born. Except for that whole having time to enjoy our beautiful floors and organized home.
In the mean time it means craziness, not getting to enjoy all the time and effort we put into installing wood and tile floors in this house and driving around with a wedding dress in my car. Okay actually I don’t need to be driving around with it in my car any longer. I took it out of the closet in our extra room so the closet wouldn’t look so small with my big and puffy wedding dress hanging in it for our one and only showing. It just so happens that I have repeatedly forgotten to take it out of the car and bring it back inside.
Maybe I should just take it out of the back of the car already. Or maybe I should just leave it there. We’ll be moving in a month anyway.
