Day Three of Operation Hardwoods. The downstairs is almost done. Tomorrow they start on the upstairs. I hope to have my house back sometime between next Saturday and 2012.
It's always a little weird to go into your bathroom and discover that even the toilet paper is covered in sawdust.
But lo, there is progress.
There is also this, unfortunately.
I've spent the last couple days begging the floor guys to leave our router plugged in and undisturbed, which is stressful because I don't know how to say "I NEED THE INTERNET TO DO THIS BULLSHIT 'JOB' THAT I DO" in Spanish. Do air-quotes translate?
"I WORK REALLY 'HARD'. WILL BE UPSTAIRS IN BED WHILE YOU PULL UP PEE-STAINED CARPET. ADIOS."
The floors look really great so far, except that now I think I want new kitchen cabinets. But I'm not going to say anything about that to Jason until all the sharp and deadly power tools are out of the dining room.
Noah is not so very sure about any of this.
(Translation for anyone who doesn't speak toddler: OH NO! OH NO NO NO! etc.)
