A quick update...
I haven't posted in 5 days and it's due to this!
(removing old tub)
Yes, it's that bad! New subfloor needed, but my shower arrived today, those are pieces of it in the back.
Unfortunately, it's already 8 pm and I still have to sketch out my cabinet layout since I am leaving at 6 am for IKEA in D.C. to get all my cabinets and faucet, lights, etc. I get to go by myself so I will actually get accomplished what I set out to do without whiny kids! I have been waiting for the weather to hold out, but can't wait any longer, hubby will have the floor and toilet installed tomorrow and will be ready for the cabinets. We have rain here, but I hear they will get snow there, but hopefully the roads will be ok. I-95 should be fine and I drive a Subaru, but what worries me are all the Florida plates up and down the interstate, lol! Kind of like Seattle people fear the AZ plates in the rain :)!
I have had a request from Mama Pea of A Homegrown Journal for an update on my "learning to knit" progress. Remember, you asked for it (cringe!)
What is it? It's a "needle case"!!
With my type A/OCD personality, I figured I simply could not learn to knit without proper organization. My husband thinks I'm crazy...
And speaking of crazy, how cool is it that my husband is learning to crochet?! It's not that foreign to him since he is a whiz with nautical knotwork, making hammocks, etc, so he is progressing quicker than I.
Pillow hubby crocheted
Dogs taking ownership of pillow. Marley likes it when he is out to sea, I think it's like her "woobie", smells like her daddy's hands! Dumb little Sprocket doesn't care about anything other than Marley being next to her, she's her "mommy".
Story about husband's fascination with knotwork: During our "honeymoon", we stayed at a cabin near a lake in Western Virginia. There was a communal dock everyone at the resort could tie up at. One evening, we walked down to the dock to check on our kayak and watch the sun set, and he bent down next to each cleat on that dock and tidied up and properly "flemished" everyones guy lines and coiled them neatly on the dock. I wish now I would have taken a picture of it, and better yet, seen the other peoples' faces the next morning when they went down to the dock!
I still need to go take car seats out of my car and make room for IKEA stuff, but just wanted to let you all know... I'm still here, and reading your blogs is my only sanity every morning as I step over tools, flooring, plywood, and all that has invaded my home over the last week!
