Happy Labor Day Peeps!! Jamie and I have spent this weekend Laboring :) at my parents place and man have we been busy!! My parents house has had a lot of damage done to it this summer from all the storms we've gotten. We had a lot we are trying to get done too and what an adventure this has been! We were supposed to install new carpet too. WERE being the big word there. lol
Thursday we spent the day replacing the sky light. That was not a fun project had a lot of problems. I hope to never have to install another one! lol We thought it would be done in 4 hours at the most. Yeah right!! lol We spent a good chunk of Friday finishing that nightmare project. Then we shingled the back entry, that was interesting as we ran out of shingles and had to do some in the dark with a flashlight since we were behind in schedule. ROFL But we found out you can do it and still have it look good. lol
Saturday we started on the inside of the house. The front door leaked bad with our first big nasty storm this summer. Wrecked the sheet rock and carpet. However when we took the sheet rock off we found a very nasty surprise mold had started growing on the other wall in another room. Yikes so we had to clean out the corner in that room which happens to be my mom's craft room.
When we moved out the cabinet we found a VERY bad surprise the carpet in the corner was soaked, the cabinet had mold growing up the back and two walls were damaged. I CRUMBA!! Not good peeps!! So now we have more work to do; we have to tape that room, paint, build mom a new cabinet hers is ruined and figure out what were going to do with the flooring in there.
We also had to rip out the front door and check everything and figure out where it was leaking. That is the only project so far that went well and on schedule. lol
At 8:30 pm Saturday night we got the front door back in and it works better than before!! Success!! We were supposed to install the carpet yesterday but the carpet has been a NIGHTMARE. It was ordered 2 months ago from Menhards and it took 2 months to get it in due to screw ups. When my parents went to pick it up someone had ran the fork through a roll damaging so it had to be all reordered again so the pieces matched the same die lot. Lets see if it takes another 2 months! lol ] What an adventure this has been and it sure hasn't been dull! lol We won't be done with this project this weekend as planned which isn't great because in 3 weeks we have company coming to stay with my parents so my Stampin' Up! newsletter and my promotions will be late this month since I will have to work this into our schedule now. I know some of you have been asking me about it along with classes and right now I am not sure what will be happening we have to get this done asap.
