impossible soul.



This is what we look like after a much-too-long, three-hour nap on Sunday afternoon. I love when he wears that striped shirt.

On Friday, Clint decided he wanted to re-tile the bathroom floors at our new house. By himself. This came as a surprise because a) he has never done anything like this, and b) he's never even shown an interest in doing it when he could just pay somebody else to get the job done. Maybe he was motivated by looking at our long list of home repairs and expenses though. Because sure enough, he spent all day Saturday taking a hammer to the floors and ripping up the tile. I'm proud of him - but we're both crossing our fingers that the rest of the process turns out well.

I've been wanting to sell or get rid of practically everything in our house lately so we can start new. (It's a problem, because that's not actually realistic.) This weekend I sold our leather couches. Now our front room is really open and empty, which means it's starting to feel like we're actually moving soon. Which means I'm starting to panic a little thinking about packing up this place...

  2. I love your matching stripes...as for the tiling...good luck! We re-tiled our house last year and what we thought would take a day, took five....that said, we used those itty bitty hexagon tiles and I think getting those to line up was half the battle.

  5. If you need help packing, let me know. I am serious. I have packed up three apartments by myself, 7 months pregnant both times. I also just helped my friend pack her kitchen and move. I am a genius when it comes to packing, I swear.

    Also, did Clint find it ridiculously hard to remove the tile? We took the tile out of our entryway only (like 8 squares or something like that) and it nearly killed Dillon.

  8. Clint is brave. I think laying the tile might be fun, it's the grouting that sounds like a pain (dirt! everywhere!)

    I took a way too long nap yesterday too. I couldn't fall asleep until well after midnight. Darn Sundays.

    graham and i spent three years of our early marriage working on projects nearly every weekend on our house. it was fun/frustrating/expensive/worth it.

    good luck. your place looks awesome as is, so i can't imagine you'll have much to do.

    as for packing, bleh. extra good luck on that my dear. i never want to move again after last year!

    oh, and love your stripes. (hello skinny lady! )

  11. Have fun packing. I hate packing, but that's only because I have way too much junk that should be thrown out.

  19. Look at it this way, when you are packing up it is like the ultimate organization/getting rid of stuff time. Ah that feels the best! And at least it isn't June?
