A high-heel loving gal and her trusty sidekick…
Saturday, June 29, 2013


It hasn't felt like it, but we are slowly but surely making progress on the house... Currently wrapping up a 10 hour day, where we got LR ceilings sanded, spackled, primered; drywall up in the 2 basements rooms and ready for mudding; lights up in dining room and kitchen; a bit of paint up in kitchen (including ceilings done); a trip to Lowes... Hopefully tomorrow will be as productive!

Why MY mom is the best...

Sorry to say it folks, but clearly my mom is the best one ever. 

She does things like get on her hands and knees to scrape horribly bits of linoleum off the floor (burning her leg with the heat gun in the process):

She tackles any job with enthusiasm, including ripping out drywall and insulation:

She helps me do horrible jobs like ripping out appliances and loading dumpsters:

There is no task too small, too tedious (even spraying ceilings so we can scrape down popcorn):

Or taping fireplaces off:

Yes, folks, this gal is the BEST! She has been at the job site every day with me. She is always up for another trip to Home Depot or Lowes or the lighting store or a flooring store. She is always on the lookout for the best deals on flooring. She risks life and limb (and all her joints on an alternating basis) every day. 

Thanks Lavs!  You're the best!

Man, is my signing arm tired!

Yes, folks, I finally signed on the new house today!


Although, mother, I am a little upset right now about the insanely long name you gave me...

That I had to sign a million times.
