In all my spare time….

Actually in all the spare time that I do not have, I have not been able to blog away. Annabelle is 6 weeks old and although things are settling down slightly, I am still very busy with all the children. We are anxiously awaiting spring. My mind dreams of the glorious garden I have intentions…

So if the carpet removal in four rooms and the hallways took about an hour, how long will it take to get the 30 year old linoleum out of the kitchen? Actually this is two layers of linoleum – and don’t forget we laid a nice new parquet wood floor over the top of both…

It’s seems that I forgot one other “minor” project we completed when the floor was done. We built in a bunk bed over the new stairs, once they were moved. In order to salvage the use of the bedroom and double the use of the space, we built the bunk directly over the stairs. This…
