Renovations

What’s making me tired today.

I've been a little bit frazzled lately. Why?

Well, this is what my family room looks like right now.

That silver duct work used to be hidden in a wall between my kitchen and family room. The big wood beam at the top of the picture is new. We put it there so the upstair's bedrooms didn't end up in the kitchen. Smart, eh?

This next shot is of my back hall.  This used to be my kitchen pantry and a bathroom. It's now becoming a big mud room. That's a pocket door on the right that's being roughed in; I will pull that closed to hide all my kid's stuff. The thought of being able to hide all their crap stuff makes me very happy.

Finally we have a picture of my back staircase which is being opened up.

All of this work is supposed to be done by December 17th. Yep, the week before Christmas.

How am I handling all of this? Okay, I guess. But you know what? Even though all I have to do is answer questions and pick out colours, while someone else actually does all the work, this renovation stuff makes Tired Mama tired – very tired.

Basically? I'm counting the days until we're done.

  2. Renovation is frustrating (and something you never really recover from). Just keep telling yourself, “It will be awesome when it is finished,” over and over again. Good luck and I completely feel your pain.
