If you have been following my blog any time at all, you know that we are deep in the middle of a building an addition on to our ranch home.
We are doing this in full DIY fashion, so we have been at it for almost a year now.
My unplanned “ceiling to floor” kitchen renovation last October set us back a little in our building plan.
You may recall that when we renovated our kitchen, we installed new hard wood floors…
Which led us to installing hard wood floors in our living room as well…
It was a crazy time! And right before Christmas! Yowza!
Well, here’s what I am a little embarrassed to tell you.
We are ripping up the hard wood floors we put down last November to install new ones. (covering eyes with hands)
It’s a loooooong story, but basically, we are not thrilled with the way our pine floors turned out, and we have decided to cover the whole downstairs in the same utility grade oak that we used in our new master bedroom.
So this is what our living room looks like now…
We will be installing the old pine flooring on the upstairs ceiling in the addition, which I love!
So, it’s a total mess here again. Hey, what’s new?!!
On a much more happy and fun note, my whole family ran in a 5k race this morning!
It was his very first 5k race at 5 years old! And he finished under 40 minutes!
He was so very excited!!!
And Adam won another medal! He won first place in his age category and ran it in a little over 26 minutes.
I love being able to run together as a family.
You have to understand, we were NOT a running family until about 3 years ago. My husband caught the running “bug” 3 years ago, and it has rubbed off on me and my boys. Now it is something we love to do together, and I think the boys will do for a long time.
Sooooo, we (okay, Cy and Jonathan) will be working on the floors all weekend, and I will give you an other update next week.
How crazy do you think we are for ripping up the floor again? (Don’t answer that.)
I hope you have a great rest of the weekend!
