I don't have much to say lately.

My life has been consumed with flooring, saw dust, dogs in bandannas, business stuff, allergies and more saw dust.

It took five days to finish the flooring in the hall. Five days, people. Lots of trial and error. Heavy on the error. But it looks pretty and we're now about 1/2 done with the nursery, and maybe 1/5 done with the master. After that, we have all the closets and the office. Then I can breathe again.

Sometime this month, I might finally get to schedule our homestudy interviews. I'm a little annoyed that they have not been scheduled yet, but also a little relieved since "ooooh hiiii... please ignore all the sawdust... it's not a danger to a baby... really..." probably isn't a good way to introduce myself to the person conducting the interview.

The dogs slip and slide on the new floor. It's quite funny. Dustin loves to scare Molly and watch her run in place, trying to get away from him. He's so mean. No wonder the dog has issues.

I've been talking to a few shop owners who may be interested in carrying some of our product line. I'm really hoping this works out. A few wholesale accounts would really help to grow our business in good ways.

I'm trying to dry socks but the dryer just turned itself off after being on for only a few minutes. The door is broken and pops open at random intervals. It's quite annoying and I want to throw it out the window. But I don't think it would fit.

I think I might become a "please remove your shoes at the door" person. Don't hate me because my floor is beautiful.

I'm pondering the idea of a chair rail in the nursery. Maybe white bead board. Maybe that would be a little too "kountry with a k".

I've had a table saw in my kitchen (not being used in there, just stored in there at night and when it rains) for over a week. I think I might be a redneck.

That is all. Good night!

everyone in ontario removes shoes. It's like an unspoken rule.
I still remove my shoes in almost every home I go to. Unless the floors look scary to walk on. Then I keep my shoes on.
I'd remove my shoes - and not think you a freak - if I came to your house :)

I want to see pictures of this flooring! I can't wait to own a house and then feel like putting money into it :) There is so much that could be done to improve this home, but we're renting. So putting money into it doesn't make much sense.

I hope some stores will take your jewelry! That would be awesome!

I actually have found that there are less marks on our pergo when I wear shoes than when I don't. Weird, huh?

I like chair rails. They are hard to put up, but look really great.

Have fun.

I think beadboard is lovely, and I'm not a "kountry"-style person at all. I like the way it looks, and I bet it would be easier to wipe little fingerprints off of than paint would be!

You're going to love your floors when they're all finished! We've got wood floors and I love them! :)

Wow, you're laying new floor in the whole house? You have much more patience than me. I'd have to move out just to keep my sanity.

Beadboard is very popular around here in expensive homes. I don't consider it "kountry" :) Hubby wants to put it in practically every room. Like we have time for that right now! Chair rails are quick, easy, and inexpensive though.
