Getting out of town

I am writing this post from my friend Shannon's office and listening to the sound of our kids laughing hysterically at something in the other room.

I invited myself over for a two day visit while we get our hardwood floors refinished. It was supposed to be a Mon-Wed project that now looks to extend into Thursday. I thought that this would be a great week to have it down because the kids are off school and I had the freedom to get out of town. But it mght have been nice to send them to school on Thursday instead of trying to plan yet another day away from the house.

I promise to post some before and after pictures of the floors. I'm so excited and I hope that I don't have my expectations too high. This is one of those projects that we always talked about doing and just recently committed to when we realized it wasn't outrageous to hire someone to do it for you. We cannot take on any more do it yourself projects at the moment. I am overwhelmed with the amount of unfinished do it yourself projects in our house currently. In fact, this may be the only time we've ever hired someone to come in and do a project from start to finish. Maybe Matt will chime in and correct me if I'm wrong (I know you're reading this).

For now I'm going to enjoy being at Shannon's lovely home and having some built in entertainment for my girls in the form of Jack and Cade. Earlier they were all in Jack's room playing school - is it any surprise that Ella was the teacher? As long as Jack doesn't mind being bossed around for the next two days they're going to have a great time!
