So, knowing that, explain to me why we decided to have our carpeted steps to the second floor replaced with wood steps this week? This process requires us to move most of the living room furniture into the family room. We can't use the stairs for 8 hours a day so we have to bring downstairs anything we might need for the day, including different clothes, wallets, books...anything that we would possibly need all day. The project covers things with dust and creates very strong odors.
While that is going on Betty is in the middle of sanding and re-staining all the cabinets in the upstairs guest bath and re-designing her office, also upstairs. Plus, she is working on a major project for the church that has half the garage filled with wood, cement, tools, fabric, and other odds and ends.
Also I should mention because it is spring in Phoenix that means major backyard cleanups, replanting, and trimming are underway. It means removing a broken fountain and fixing a potting bench, plus trips to the garden center for more pots and plants for the porch and Ramada.
As I write this we are restricted to a couch in the family room, half the dinette table, and the backyard. I am going bonkers. It is my worst nightmare in triplicate. It is the perfect storm of domestic upheaval. Wait, there's more. My wife just informed me her eyeglasses snapped in half!
The joys of home ownership come with its constant upkeep and remodeling. A condo is starting to look pretty good. Someone else can fix and upgrade and repair. Someone else can replant and prune, re-roof and repaint.
Oh, I have to go. The lawn service apparently cut the head off a sprinkler and part of the yard is flooding.
