Well, on top of starting a new job, getting settled in the new house, painting all of the downstairs, faux painting a bathroom, getting new fixtures, installing hardwood floors we FINALLY got our tree up.
We opted to do the hardwoods ourselves being the so very 'handy' people that we are. There was some dated hardwood already in the entry way and with the EXTREME help of Danny's brothers we thought we could pull the glued down hardwood up in a couple of hours and get going with the rest of the downstairs. Umm, try over EIGHT hours later we put down our first board!!! That stuff did NOT want to come up. We ended up getting an electric chisel jackhammer contraption to help. I didn't have a go at it, but it looked PAINFUL.
Please lie and tell me I am not the only one so tardy in getting Christmas out?
It's kind of hard to "deck the halls" when your deck isn't even there. :(
