House Beautifying Weekend

I would like to say that I have the nicest family on the planet.

Seriously, they all came over this Easter weekend and helped me with a yucky reno job on my laundry room that we weren't even able to finish so they don't even have that satisfaction.

Unfortunately, the cosmos were against us and everything that could go wrong, went wrong. Our original plan was off, so we had to spend a lot of time replanning. Then I had to go buy new supplies. Then we found out we'd gotten the wrong thing AFTER Home Depot had already closed. Then my sewing machine broke... grrr!

However, we did get some great stuff accomplished. The laundry room is CLEAN. We reinforced a floor joist that the home inspector had recommended we reinforce. There's an extra support in place and the heating duct has been moved. We designed my curtains and cut everything out and even almost finished the first curtain panel before the sewing machine betrayed me.

We ate a lot.
We watched the Leaf game.
Some of us had Starbucks.
I had fun (I don't know about them).

And they may be coming back next weekend to finish the job.

I'm so lucky to have them. I wish I could say thank you more.
