Productive Weekend!

Today was a most productive day. Open-mouthed smile We started out this morning with an early morning walk and a nice breakfast. Because it was another relatively cool day, we didn’t have to be too concerned about getting started right away. So we had a nice leisurely start to the day.

Then Harry got back to working on the upstairs floor.


He was almost up to where we had moved all the stuff from the room.


He is so excited to be getting this floor done. (By the way, anyone need a dresser? Both of those dressers in the picture are going!)


In the meantime, I was back to sorting out clothes and other items in our closet and my bedroom dresser. I tried not to keep anything that I haven’t worn in years! Usually I succumb to a lot of thoughts like, well, I might want to wear this sometime. But this time I was much better, and filled up another three bags! Then we loaded up the car, and took them to the clothes drop down the road.


This is Harry very glad that all this stuff is leaving our house. Smile


It’s been such a great work weekend! And now, tomorrow, it’s back to….Crying face


  1. You guys did terrific! Floor looks great. Bet you feel good after getting rid of some more 'stuff'. I have a hard time getting George to get rid of things he doesn't wear. He's got two of everything, if not more :)

  2. Thanks Laurie! Harry did a great job! :) And I felt so good to be able to get rid of so many bags of stuff.

  3. congrats on the 'purge'..good job!!!

  4. The floor looks great. I
    Does Harry do tile? This winter I've got two bathrooms to do. I could use some supervision!

    Purging is the hardest part of this whole getting ready thing.

  5. Hi Rod, :) I don't think Harry has ever done tile. He was reading up on it at one point and thinking about taking one of those Home Depot classes, but I don't think he ever got around to it! He sure is getting good at doing laminate flooring though. He has done almost the whole house - only one room left.

    I agree - purging is a long process!! We have a lot more to get rid of. :)

  6. The floor looks really great! Very nice work.
    Don't you just love to see those bags leave the house??? What a productive day for you all.
