Odds and Ends

We are getting down to the wire on the house.

Yesterday, the hubby and I installed our light fixtures in the kitchen/dining nook. Yes, we had the electrician install both. We hated them immediately, so we took them down and installed a couple of new ones. We made the right choice, as I'm completely satisfied with the light fixtures now.



Yes, very happy with these indeed. I love, love, LOVE the dining nook fixture. It's perfect.

What's left to do-

1. The floors
2. The countertops
3. Final plumbing, i.e. toilets and sinks

When will these get done? Your guess is as good as mine. We are having the appliances delivered a week from now, so the floors better be done by then. If they aren't, the hubby is going to have to throw-down. I'm having a hard time not being grumpy right now because we are so close, yet so far. Sigh. 6 months is a long time to not have a home, and to not have your stuff.

This was not our best decision in hindsight (i.e. giving up our disgusting, yet private rental), but hey, you live you learn.

Entries may be sparse until the house is done, as antsy-ness has given me a short attention span and writer's block. Until next time, hope everyone has a great Monday!

    1. Well, it's coming along. Slowly, very slowly. Countertops are scheduled for Friday. Jerame gave the project manager a piece of his mind yesterday, because we only have countertops, sinks/toilets, and carpet left. There is no reason they shouldn't be done by now. It's a frustrating process, we pretty much lost any patience we had.
      Thanksgiving was fun though! Our nieces and nephews are finally getting to an age where they are ok to be around. LOL, you know us and kids :) Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving though, I already saw your gorgeous tree!
