Not to complain, but...

I want my house back! I am blessed with a husband who not only CAN do major home improvements, but actually LIKES to do major home improvements. He amazes me.

However...(this is the totally whining part) I always get all jazzed up and excited and then about the 4th day into it, when there is dust on every surface in my house and we have eaten outside or on the floor for days and as I go room to room all I see is STUFF piled up in stacks that seem to grow by the hour...I start to forget that this was my bright idea. To have him install, and sand, and finish hardwood floors. The week before we have family and friends coming. For our daughter's graduation.

What was I thinking??

Home improvement is just like childbirth. When the floors are done and sparkly and beautiful, it's like the newborn after a bath. The dust and crap everywhere that has you standing in the middle of the room going, "What was I thinking?!" is the two-hour crying fest at 3 a.m. Good luck! (notice I'm not volunteering to help)
