So Long for Now and What's Next?

I always sleep better when everyone is home...I noticed this after the girls had been away to college. That Christmas vacation, when they were both home...and my mom was here too...I went to bed that first night, with a feeling that our home was complete again...weird, huh? Maybe you mothers that are reading this will relate.

Anyway, it is easier to say good-bye when you can add, 'See you next month'.




It seems like everyone just got here...now the nest is nearly empty again...


Mom is still here for a few more days. The next step in our kitchen re-do is the flooring. Here is the dining area without the carpet.
Do I hear an echo in here?!

I can so relate. I'm glad your family was home for a while, though. Good luck with finishing the remodel. I know it's a lot of work, but you'll be so happy to have it done, I'm sure!

You always have such good pictures to go with your posts.
I am starting to feel like I really know your family, :) .

I need you at my house to do all this work. I keep looking at what needs painted and trying to look away!

Ooohh, what kind of flooring? Is it going to be a surprise?

I'd say I hear ya on the empty house but I LOVE an empty house so I can't relate. *wink*
