Thanks my Friends!!

Thanks my friends for attending our Renovation Reveal Party yesterday.  We had so much fun!!  We are all packed with food today and taking it easy.

I hope you enjoyed the day to day break down of all phases of the renovation and enjoyed the reveal as much as we did.  Mom said today, her behinney will not move from her chaise.  All of us are still resting from everything.

But we all wanted to send all of our friends here in blogville HUGE cyber hugs for coming to our virtual party and always be such wonderful friends.  Have an awesome Saturday!!

Renovation – Phase IV

Welcome back my friends to Phase IV – furniture delivery.  Now, today I can’t show you any pictures of the house at this point.  I know that stinks but I can talk to you about the furniture 🙂

The furniture crew called me and advised they would be out at the house between 2:30-5:30PM.  This was fine with me because I had things to get completed before they came out.

Big Daddy

My kitchen had been gutted – bye bye kitchen table.  We really didn’t need one.  The one we had was huge and seemed to be a ‘catch all’ for everything and anything that came through the room.  We decided to do without a table.  It’s just the two of us anyway and we normally camp out in front of the television in the living room talking and watching the news in the evening.  So, my dream kitchen needed one thing that I had ordered off line.  The down side was that one thing had to be put together.  I’m not good a jigsaw puzzles.  If the box had 50 pieces in it, there would probably be 40 pieces leftover if I put it together on my own.  So, I bartered with my neighbor, Big Daddy, next door.  I would give him two items of furniture that his wife wanted if he helped me put together my item I ordered.  His wife volunteered him so quickly it wasn’t even funny – LOL.  And I have to admit that after two hours, we had done it together!  It looked beautiful and better yet it fit so perfectly in the kitchen – like it was made there.  You will have to come back tomorrow to find out what it was 🙂 winks

  Also, my mom had been keeping two book shelves for me at her house that she had said she would give to me over the years.  Me and Jim went and got them… of course in the rain.  This weather was killing us!  They fortunately fit in the back of our SUV when the door was kept open.  We were able to get them into the living room and put them where they needed to go before the furniture arrived.

Also in the meantime of waiting for the furniture, we cleaned.  Isn’t that how it is?  You clean before to de-clutter.  You clean during due to dust.  Then you have to clean after.  By this time I’ll be honest with you, I was.so.over.cleaning!

Then the furniture arrived.  Three guys brought the pieces inside of the Hotel Thompson.  One of the guys let it be known that *I* had expensive taste.  That’s ALL my husband had to hear – HA!   Once everything was in place, me and the hub stood back and looked at everything.  It was in that moment we both let out a breath of air and knew we had made the right decision in doing this remodel.

That’s also when I nudged him and told him we weren’t finished.  We then had to decorate.  Rolls eyes – one of my least favorite things trust me.  Tomorrow, come back for the Renovation Reveal Party where you will see everything in its glorious.  I hope you have enjoyed our trip into letting go and beginning a new life.
