Just an update my friends on the renovation
hell project here at the Hotel Thompson. Today marks 11 more days until completion. I say GET IT DONE ALREADY – snorts. No really, mom/dad worked on decluttering and purging *all* weekend long. I have to say, those two put some elbow grease into the destruction remodeling. What do they say, “It always looks the worse before it gets better.” I sincerely hope so.
This weekend they worked on the closet of the known. You know that closet my friends. The one that you don’t dare open in fear of everything falling out on top of you. It was three hours of “oh look what I found” – snorts. Among the things that were found were:
2 boxes of clothes that mom brought to the house when she moved in 16 years ago! 😳
2 deep sea fishing rods and reels – Moby Dick you are safe.
Moms high top Mickey Mouse sneakers from high school.
Dads stereo equipment.
Moms pearls that went missing a couple of years back. Don’t ask how they got into the closet. God only knows.
Mom/dad worked hard on that closet and the rest of the cleaning this weekend. I’m glad to report that after many trips to Goodwill to drop off donations and many bags of trash later, the house is coming together. There was a couple of added things to be done during this renovation and I’ll keep you posted. As it stands right now, the time table still looks good.
