Loss of the first floor, acclimating to the house

Since I haven’t been writing, here is a brief catch up..

In March, the sewer backed up through our shower into our house. Much cursing was had. Husband and I learned how to communicate better. Floors were redone… They just finished doing them right a week ago. Clearly there was some complications… That being said, I will save those for a later date.

Moving upstairs gave me the opportunity of getting to live with a lower roof over my head for a bit. That was actually a good transition for me. We stayed in my art room which wasn’t huge before I threw all my bookshelving in and got even smaller with a mattress in it. I actually was pretty comfortable sleeping in there and got to get used to the bed being a sleeping place. I even acclimated to the mattress! I also really enjoyed being able to walk down the hallway and go sit at the computers. With the main downside just being that there was only really one restroom. Due to construction, we didn’t have a working kitchen or washing machine for a while. If you don’t live near somewhere you can easily use a kitchen and a washing machine, I imagine life would be harder. In my rv resort, they had both of those in great working condition so I never struggled there.

We are finally really moving back downstairs and it isn’t as tough. Maybe it is because we have been waiting to do it, or maybe it is because we had it painted and the floors done to our style.. I don’t really know. It could also be the wonderful couches that we get to snuggle on with the kittens.. I just know that I am happy to be back down in the part of the house that I used to dread. We are still slowly but surely furnishing our house but the living room is almost done and as soon as the next set of furniture is delivered, the book room will be furnished completely. (Minus a small bar cabinet)

Our kitchen is still sans seating and we are using a cute but worn table that my hubbys mom was so kind as to share with us. Upstairs needs a good cleaning after our cats but.. we still have most of our stuff up there so it will have to wait a bit longer.

All in all, I am setting nicely, or would be if I was home long enough to settle (More on that Wednesday)

      Thank you so much! I want to post pictures but need to get a decent camera so people can actually see the colors. =) Such pretty pinks and greys that contrast with a dark floor. =p
