Trenchy takes a wife

If you're wondering, we've been kicked out of the house again while the foundation guys get to work...work that includes ripping up YET ANOTHER room of my house. Last Friday we had to give up our master bedroom/bathroom so they could pull up the carpet and install interior piers. This means digging more holes in the middle of our house. So far there are three. So, if you're counting, we are living in two bedrooms, one bathroom and one kitchen. And there are six of us. Yes, that math seems odd to me as well.

And while I am annoyed to be living in such circumstances, I can finally see the light at the end of (this) tunnel. Monday the plumbers come back to fill in Trenchy and he will be no more. Wednesday Melton the Carpet Guy comes back to lay our carpet, and we'll have it cleaned. Thursday I will make my cleaning appliances and a few boxes of Mr. Clean magic erasers wish they had never been born.

So, for now I'm feeling good. Like, really good. Talk to me in another six months when it's time to PULL DOWN OUR LIVING ROOM CEILING AND REHANG IT. (and put in new floors, and patch up the drywall, and repaint, and, and, and...)

There's no place like home. Right Dorothy?

lI think you need to be recommended for sainthood!

Although I seem to remember Dorothy's house was also ripped apart...

That's all I got.

Living with "remodeling" is tough tough tough. Tough. When we had no flooring, appliances or bathrooms on our first floor, it was hard but a) our math is easier since we only have 4; b) it was our choice; and c) (and this is a big one) we couldn't see China from our livingroom floor. Also too, ours was all cosmetic, so I'm just having a heck of a time wrapping my brain around all that's happening down/over there. And I have to say, what I can fathom I don't like even one little bit. :(

Hang in there! (Literally in some rooms)

Perhaps, building a house from scratch would be easier?

I don't even know what to say. After just the tiniest (and I do mean tiniest) glimpse of living in a construction zone my heart is bleeding for you. You have a much better attitude about it than I would!
