My To Do List....Blog Today

I kept wondering why people were still commenting on me being sick and then I realized I haven't posted anything on my blog for a while. My apologies....I still have a lovely cough that I'm sure will continue until Summer and with my whole family having gotten it, we should like a chorus of coughing all the time!

But after recovering I've spent a lot of time working on things like these...

Yes, we are finally getting the basement finished and now worries, these are NOT the colors of the basement. But boy it seems to take up a lot of my time, energy and definitely MONEY!! But the closer I get to moving my son downstairs the closer I'll get to finishing my office/craft room.

I feel bad though, my husband keeps telling everyone he got "fired".

And he sort of did....we moved into this house almost 5 years ago. My husband assured me that he would quickly finish the basement so I could have a craft space. However, it's been a long process and still it wasn't getting done. It's not all his fault...in fact, I blame money, or the lack there of. But still, I did have to tell the sheetrockers that he has "no say" and to check with me before doing anything he told them. So yes, he did sort of get fired. But don't worry....I've hired him back for some smaller jobs and I think it will all work out!!

I will start sharing pictures of all the reworked spaces soon!!

I had to laugh at your husband getting "fired" because it is similar to when we moved into our current home (nearly 7 years ago.) dh heard me talking to his cousins; they asked about a stack of 3-4 boxes sitting in one corner of our basement. I said, "Doug promised to get rid of them by October. I forgot to ask him, 'October of what year?' "
He cleaned up the boxes the next day :)

Love your blog, and I am looking forward to seeing your renewed spaces. One of my clients had a similar problem, rebuilding their basement took them much longer than they thought and, well, it brings unexpected difficulties.I wish you good luck and I can´t way to see the result of your work!
