Some days it seems as if we have been in slow motion getting our house stuff done. We still (yes STILL) have boxes and boxes of books to unpack, once we finish transforming the living room into a library. Pot lights are going in there now. Next step will be to have book shelves and a desk built in. Oh, and also a dog kennel area...there's going to be a half wall, which will also act as a cabinet for dog stuff (I did mention we were getting a pup in the spring, didn't I?). Once that work is done, there are a couple outside jobs that will get priority - a gate so the pup can romp in the backyard without making an unscheduled trip down to the lake - and new stairs (safe ones this time) for the deck.

Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

You've been a homeowner long enough to realize that there is NO end to the tunnel, right? ;)

Right now we have everything pushed over to one side of the house to make a path for our refrigerator delivery tomorrow. Tomorrow we get to take 3 doors off the hinges for the delivery. Then we get to return everything to normal, if there is such a thing.

I live around the corner from you and just discovered your blog. We moved in in 2007 and still have our books in boxes so I can relate. Dh is hoping to build a bunch of IKEA type but not IKEA price bookshelves.

Good news! I bet it will feel so good to have a sense of some things accomplished. Unpacking books is so rewarding!

tshsmom...har, you're right of course.

Patience...what a treat to have a neighbour stumble into this blog. I'm sure we'll meet sometime.
