In other news, we have a new light in the hallway on the main floor. The old light, affectionately known as "the boob light" went to a nice lady named Beth on Freecycle who needed a fixture for her living room.
Other updates -- the drywall in the basement is now fixed and the guest room, hallway and laundry room are freshly painted. The guest room and hallway actually got painted twice because the painter had a little senior moment and used the laundry room paint the first time. As much as I'm sure our guests would appreciate a pink bedroom, it's now the proper "Captivating Cream" and the laundry room is a fresh and pretty "Sugar Berry". Next, the carpet guy has to come and lay down the new pad and put the carpet back down. We also have someone coming out tomorrow to re-frame the wall we took down in the kitchen. Once that's done, we can schedule the flooring folks to come in and put the new floor down!
