Joel's Projects

Ollie is sleeping peacefully. He's probably making up for last night. It wasn't a bad night by any means--but just when we are getting used to waking up twice (at 2 and 6) he changes things on us. Last night he woke at 12, 3 and 6. Silly little boy.

Anyway--Joel has been starting a few projects with his extra time. Yesterday we went to Lowe's and bought laminate flooring for our back mud room, and tile for that back bathroom. He started the laminate project yesterday when we got back. He's made great progress! It helps that the flooring underneath was good and ready for the next layer--unlike our kitchen 3 years ago--Joel and a friend had to flood the whole kitchen to scrape off the layers of ancient glue that held down, orange, yellow and red carpet (yes, that's right!). But this should make that back room look really nice--and be much easier to clean than green carpet. Seriously--let's stop using carpet for these high-traffic, dirt-prone areas!!!!!

Its so much fun to read your blogs Kendall and Joel! This whole blog thing is just addictive! I love reading everybodys. Congratulations and best wishes on little Oliver! I could go into the whole "I remember when...." but I won't. I'm just so excited for both of you!

That is going to make your back room area look so nice! I love that hardwood look. Way to go Joel!
