March (and the first of April) has been quite a memorable time for us!
The first fiasco was the upstairs bathroom pipe busting and creating a HUGE mess in our kitchen.
The second disaster was when the stomach bug (from you know where) hit our entire family, sparing only me. I must have a stomach of steel!
I thought about doing a post about how absolutely insane those 5 days of my life were, but I thought I might gross ya’ll out, and I would lose half my followers.
Believe me…I barely made it out alive!
Now back to the kitchen…
While our ceiling was drying out, and we were waiting to hang the sheet rock, we lived with our furniture pushed up against one wall.
And our kitchen table was covered in a mess and pushed into our kitchen.
Unfortunately, it made cooking very difficult. (hee.hee.) So we had to eat out a lot. Or we had picnic meals in our den!
My very talented husband finally hung the sheet rock and mudded it, and it looked like this for about a week. This step was messy, but it wasn’t the bad part.
The bad part was the sanding.
Oh, the sanding!!!
It was maddening!!!
(Insert scary movie music here.)
Dust covers everything!
In the entire house.
It doesn’t matter how much you try to stop it, the dust gets it’s sticky little paws on everything.
I was on the brink of insanity at this point.
I seriously wanted to cry.
But I dug real deep, girls, and I got to cleaning.
The thing about dust is you have to clean it two or three times to get it off.
The first time just makes the dust angry and smears it around.
The second time, it starts to come off, but it doesn’t let you off that easy.
If you can persevere, the third time is usually the charm.
I did it, ladies!!
I have my kitchen back!
And my ceiling back!
And my drop cloth curtains back!
Can I get a “Halleluiah?!”
It’s the best feeling ever to have my whole kitchen back.
Now maybe I can add some spring touches.
Or should I just move on to summer? :)
Anyway, I just had to share my good news with you.
