One More Mommy

Pipe Dream Home

I have been actively working on the house for the past two days, as has Esposo. This is bringing us closer and closer to the completion of the bathroom project, after which we are just going to do small things and complete projects, rather than diving into anything else big.

Which means, of course, that I can not stop thinking about massive scale projects. You know, regrading the backyard, putting in a catch basin and drainage/irrigation lines that will insure a green lawn all summer long, a new fence, a brick patio, and all new landscaping!

I keep having to dial myself back from changing the stair layout into our basement, installing a full bathroom, a wet bar, and built-in bookshelves all along the wall. Where's the pool table going again?

And the latest project that has gone into overdrive in my head is the kitchen remodel, which currently involved demo-ing all the cabinets and window and sliding glass door - I haven't gotten to the overdrive portion yet - and knocking down the wall between the kitchen and family room and then re-drywalling the entire family room, installing bookcases over the fireplace mantel, replacing the basement door, and possibly widening the doorway between the dining room and family room.

Don't give me a hammer.

Wow. If you get stranded at home, 9 months pregnant, I'm hiding all the tools. That's how the bathroom remodeling began....
