Remodeling with a Vengeance

We finally started that living room remodel that I have been wanting to do since I bought the condo last year. We knocked out the coat closet and ‘built-in entertainment center’ (formally a wet bar) to open up the entire living room. It has already helped the look of the place immensely. Now all we have to do is hire an electrician and someone to finish the drywall and sheetrock. We also decided that since we are doing all this work we are going to install laminate flooring in the living room/dining room, take out some of the bricks from hearth around the fireplace, tile the front entry way (and maybe the kitchen) and install track lighting above the fireplace wall. We might as well get all this done now before we try to finish the refinance so we can move out and buy a bigger place. We will be renting the condo until the market improves and we can sell it…who knows when we will be able to do that. It was a crazy weekend with all that work being done and we are still having a lot of problems with the electrical that was affected by the demolition.

Natalie had her 4 month check up last Thursday. My little girl is now two feet tall and over 11lbs! She’s growing up too fast! She has started to discover she can yell. The past couple of mornings she has been playing in her crib and yelling at her mobile while I was trying to get a few more minutes of rest (this has been at 5am). She is way too much of a morning person for my own personal taste. I will be really glad once she gets her own room…which will hopefully not be too much longer.
