Where did the time go? For 3 months all we did after work, on weekends and any spare time we had we worked on the house. Painting living room, dining room, Grant's new room and Grant's old room which we turned into a lounge. We steam-cleaned carpets, sewed new drapes, built cornice boxes, built furniture, installed new electronics, did faux finishes... but the end result was we got a beautiful comfortable place to hang out. The lounge is a theater room! It really is fun to go home!
The best thing about this renovation is John's Grandpa and cousin Sue came in from Austin and stayed a week! We took them to Disneyland, the Wild Animal Park and Scripps Institute! It really was great! We bought a cord of Firewood and a firplace heater and watched granpas favorite show "Two and a half men." it reall was all worth it! above is my favorite picture of Grandpa. He's just warming himself in front of the fireplace and smiling. He is a remarkable man and I just love being around him!
