Never Again


Has any one seen the cat? Or the baby for that matter! We did the switch and I will never do it AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We worked like dogs from 11:00 am to 10:00pm. The kids too, they were great. I just had one mutiny... Olivia she flat out refused to work any longer without food, by three she stopped to eat. My plan was to keep them hungry until we were done. A fat, content belly tends to become lazy. Peter pulled something in his back almost immediately.... oh joy!!! Between the two of us you couldn't build a complete person.

But I have to admit it looks good. The closets are not done and some things still need tending to but it will all get done in due time. Everyone slept well their first night in their new rooms. And I have to admit I love being in the same room with Emilia.I lay in bed and listen to her breath or coo in her sleep, it's great. I seriously had to restrain myself last night from scooping her up and putting her in bed with me.



My living room
Somewhere in there is a tiny kitchen
Just plain scary. But in was all in it's place by 10:30! Amazing! Good job Team Family!!!!!

That definately does look a bit scary!!! And that too right before Christmas, don't you have enough to do with just Christmas being there....you are amazing, amazingly brave to undertake such a job, but I know the feeling when something has to get done I can't rest either till it's done, and doesn't it feel just great when its all looking the way you want it. What a great family for helping out so much, and where are the after pictures?

I second the 'after' pictures!

Sounds like a LOT of hard work, so I am so glad that you are pleased with the end result.
