Turning the corner
You know how it feels when everything is in flux and you can't find a place to stand to look out and make a plan? That's how it was for me yesterday. In fact I awoke at 2:30 and fretted about details of our renovation for a few hours last night. But today we've turned a corner. We've found a plumber who can help us with some nitty gritty plumbing stuff. And (hooray!) we've found a laminate flooring that will work and what's more, inspires us to make some colour and design choices for the kitchen. This is a huge breakthrough. Now that we've chosen a flooring, we can choose wall paint and tiles that will create a lovely space. Now I have a vision in my head about how things can look. Now I can be inspired to continue scraping and sanding and priming because I know what the road is leading too. Here's a toast to turning the corner.
Plus, my sister has invited me to spend the weekend with her in Port Townsend, so I'll have an opportunity for a little break from the renovation routine.
