The tortoise and the hare...

Remember the Aesop's fable of the tortoise & the hare?  The tortoise was slow but steady, and in the end he won.  Well, progress on the house is slow but steady, so I know that eventually, it will be move-in ready!  :-)

Here's the living room.  After ripping out broken plaster and patching the walls with sheet rock, then removing the sheet rock to replace the wiring, then putting the sheet rock back on, it is now ready to be mudded and textured!!!

Here's the master bedroom.  It's already been mudded, and the texturing should be happening today!

While I get impatient at times (many times), I'm glad we're taking the time to important things like updating wiring and repairing plaster.  I know these 'delays' as I sometimes see them will really pay off longterm.  One of the hardest parts for me (and best parts for me, too!) is that I can't do much to help.  Nate always tells me I'm doing plenty, though.  He's so nice to me!

Nate's a good husband, and he's right, you are doing plenty!

The best thing you can do when you get the chance is rest ;-) Nate is making the house so nice for you and the baby.
The house is looking drastically different - I need to get another walk through.

Bless you at school today
