We ARE Crazy!!!

Back in April, before we discovered
that I needed surgery, chemo, etc.,
we had contracted and paid half the price
to have wood floors installed in our den
and dining room. They were supposed to be
installed in May.
Obviously, that didn't happen.
HOWEVER, they said we should
really have the floors installed before it
was time to turn the heating system on,
or the dust from sanding the existing floors
would float through the entire house.
So right in the middle of the other craziness in our life,
we decided to proceed with the project.
All the furniture had to be moved out of the
living room, dining room, breakfast room and entryway
so that the new floors could be laid and the
old floors could then be sanded,
and all the floors could be varnished so that
they matched.
This is how the breakfast area/den looked on Wednesday.
It is amazing to me how they "feathered" the
wood in so that it will look like it has
always been there.
This is the air compressor "thingy"
that does who knows what but
makes a LOT of noise. Trust me on this.
I can't wait to see how it looks
when they finish it next week!
It will be nice to eat in a dining
room that has floors you can actually
clean! Don't forget, I have 3 sometimes
messy little grandsons.

OH, I've been there and done that! That dust from the sanding permeates the whole house. It will look so pretty when it's all done--you'll be so happy you did it!
