I'm Alive and Well...In Remodel Hell

My computer is (finally) up and running and has a new home...in my (almost) completed craft room! Although there are a million things I should be doing right now (if you saw my house - you would agree)...but, I have to make a little post so in 5, 10, 20 years from now, I will remember how much I dislike remodeling!!! You would think I love it - as often as we do it! But, it's kind of like pregnancy. One forgets all of the bad, painful things.
So, we arrived home from our Thanksgiving holiday to a (still) disassembled home. There were no little home-improvement fairies working while we were away. Darn it! We returned home Sunday night and painters arrived bright and early Monday morning. Now, you would think this should be an easy project. We're just switching rooms, right? Oh no! You think that because you do not know Mr. C. It's a full re-do. And, while we're add it...let's re-do the bathroom...and have them paint the garage...and re-texture the walls and ceiling. I mean, that's what any sane person would do, right??? Ugh! But, all said and done...I have to hand it to the guy...
it will be perfect. Beautiful.
Here's a little glimpse of what I am living in....

This will be the new craft room...

This is all of the treasures from my old craft room...

This will be Cade's new room... The new bathroom...

And...the garage. Notice my lovely yellow finds? They are going in the craft room!

PS - Sadly, this is the first time (in my entire life) I have not had Christmas decorations up already. Oh well!!!
