Hellooo? Anyone home???
Yeah, I know it’s been a little light around these parts. But trust me when I tell you that I want to write. I want to talk about all of the crazy things that are going on around here, about all of the nutso things that the Big Kid and the Peanut are doing. I want to post pictures, hell I want to be TAKING pictures. But I’m not.
Because this is happening in my home.
That big concrete patch in the middle of the floor? That would be where our stairs used to be. So yeah, no stairs currently to spirit us away to our bedrooms at night. There is no furniture, no toys and only half a wall in my kitchen. There are also no walls in the upstairs hallway, so with that whole, incredibly dangerous thing in mind, suffice it to say we’re living a bit of a gypsy life right now, schlepping kids back and forth between my mother in law’s house (about 45 minutes away) and our out-of-town neighbor’s house around the corner.
With two little kids who rely upon consistency and routine to keep their world in order? Gah.
Ok actually, the kids may be doing a little better than I am. Not being at home and in a routine has made me a basket case.
Who knew that I needed routine too?
But seriously, I’m excited and nervous and freaking out and ready for it to be over… and it’s only been a week. But we are so blessed to be able to do this, to change our home completely, to be able to start fresh on so many things, like paint colors and islands and lighting and flooring and cabinets!!! Yeah, I’m stoked… but I’m so totally ready to stop living like a gypsy.
Oh and bear with all of the Pinterest activity, I’m starting to realize how much I absolutely and completely LOVE IT for a redesign. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Have you ever done a remodel? With kids? How did you get through it? (Besides wine?)
Oh and are you following me on Pinterest? Because I’m finding some really kickass stuff on there to do to my house!
