...Weekend Recap...

We had a fantastic and simple weekend at home. After our brutal 9 mile run, we did the typical waffle/coffee routine. We spent a lot of time on the patio so the kids could splash around in the kiddie pool. The heat was pretty overwhelming this weekend.

He said he didn't want to get in, so contently played outside for quite a while. Eventually, he came to his senses ;).

 When it was too warm, we spent time working on the never ending door installation. We have moved on to the closet doors. However, as with every renovation project, you always uncover more. When we removed the doors, we found that the walls are actually wallpapered (GRRRRR) and just painted over (double GRRRRRRR). We decided to just continue forward and tackle that project (wall paper removal? new drywall??), maybe in 67200 days. The entryway, stairs, and bedrooms are all wallpapered. We did our best to match the door casing to the previous casing. However, there are a few spots where you can see the wall paper edge. I haven't decided how to deal with it yet. 

The old closet doors are the generic sliding hollow panel. However, they just notched the bottom of the door to allow it to close over the baseboard. So...we removed the doors, and now we have to redo all of the baseboards RIGHT NOW (or maybe it will just look super classy for a few months) so that the doors close. One things after another.

News flash.......renovations with both kids up is like trying to brush your teeth while eating oreos. ;). We aren't as fast completion wise, but we do having a blast, though.
