When last we left, termites had been murdered, the completely useless second back door had been removed, and my walls looked like unfinished drywall. Where are we now? Well, a little further along.
Hello to my audience, whoever or wherever you are! I’ve spent much of the past month fixing things, or else slobbing it up on the couch, feeling bored. You may remember back in November when my heating decided it had had enough and flat-out died.
As we all know (or maybe don’t) but I had termites. I hate termites. I hate bugs. I hate insects. I hate it all. Or maybe I’m being a little overdramatic, but they showed up at the worst time.
When last we left, I was kind of going full-steam ahead on the kitchen. But alas, that has been waylaid. Why? Termites.
Welcome back to my kitchen. This is going to be a long journey, but I did say done by the new year, didn’t I? So here we are.
The kitchen redo has officially begun! It’s a huge project that will probably take several months to actually complete. This fall is looking pretty busy at work for me–lots of trips and other things to do. But I’m going to give myself a goal of getting this done by the end of the year. Is that too soon?
It’s been a few months since I posted anything here. I sort of took a hiatus from house projects in June, which bled into July, and now we’re more than halfway through August. Honestly, I was tired, and tired of spending money. Hence the long break.
So when I bought my house, of course, I had an inspection done. It revealed lots of things like the need for a new sewer line in the back yard, the age of the water heater, and all the little things that were not quite up to current day code considering the house was built in 1964.
I’ve been moved into this house for a year and a few months. I know I just finished the One Room Challenge, but I look around and there’s still so much to do. So when I’m feeling annoyed at the amount of work this house still needs, I sit myself down and make a list of all the things I have managed, largely by myself, in this house over the past year.
I made it! Well, almost. Barely, under the wire, by the skin of my teeth. Literally writing this hours before the official deadline of tomorrow.
