We certainly have been busy around here. Trying to complete projects before the craziness of soccer season starts. The kitchen is completed minus a few touch ups. Pictures coming soon. Eric worked on tiling the backsplash 2 weekends ago and last week. This weekend his project was painting some nifty garage flooring stuff with speckles in it and reorganizing our junk. Boy did he work! He is so proud of his garage that I've found him standing in it and just looking it over. In fact, he said he thought about pulling a sleeping bag out and sleeping in it.
He took these pics himself and told me yesterday that he couldn't believe that Ally's birthday trumped his garage makeover. So, dear, here are visuals of all your hard work. Your family appreciates it!
Those darn wheeled toys are always in the way no matter where you put them. Maybe I can find something (other than the hanging) for them.
Funny story: Eric is pretty good at fixing things around here. We don't always get to it right away, but he does get to it. Dad is always great about helping us fix whatever we haven't had the time to get to as well. Last year, Eric decided to put in a different faucet in my bathtub. He installed one with a handheld shower sprayer. Now, Eric doesn't really do plumbing and this project was going to require the plumbing torch and sweating copper pipes and drilling holes in the bathtub, removing tile, replacing tile....you get the idea. I found him in the bathroom with the laptop on the toilet playing a how-to video of sweating pipes while he was laying on his back underneath the tub with flaming pipe in hand. Gotta love it!
