What’s Been Going On?

Well, here’s a picture (or 11) of what’s keeping me away from the computer these past few days.  And it’s also what’s going to keep me away for the next few days.  Maybe weeks.  Who knows how long this will take….

This is my living room furniture.  All in one big ‘pile’.


We’re Rick’s pulling up all our carpet to put down new hard wood laminate flooring. 


We’re putting the same flooring all throughout our first floor, which means the kitchen will be next.  While the floors are up in the kitchen, I’ll be painting the walls. 

Yellow.  One of these yellows.  (the colors are crappy in the picture)

Oh, and maybe one day painting those cabinets a nice creamy white color. Maybe.


While we’re in a state of mid-construction, Jack is forced to wear his new boots.  He LOVES his boots, so that isn’t a hardship. 


While the sub floor is showing, I decided to write out some scriptures.  We’re supposed to stand on the word of the Lord, right?



Now, everyone who ever walks on our floors, and anyone who ever owns this house will be standing on a firm foundation. 


Jack wants to help with EVERY step.  He’s a pretty good helper too.  Rick is *mostly* patient with him., too.


He was the first one to walk on the new floor.


He even got to help pound in the boards.  What a good helper!


Someday, hopefully before Christmas, I’ll show you our AFTER pictures.  I can’t wait! 

Yes, we’ll have mismatched woods in our home.  I can live with that!


  1. Erik put pergo floors in our house too and did it all himself. I wish I would have thought to write scripture on the floorboards. What a good idea!!

  2. Oh you are going to love your new floors. Who cares about mismatched? I can't wait to see the after. :)

  3. I LOVE that you put verses under the flooring! I like the idea of the people who find the verses in years to come too!

  4. yay for you! new it's a tough process to live through though. love that y'all will be "standing" on scripture all day!!!

    happy late thanksgiving!
