We've talked for some time about having our floors refinished. They were in bad shape and getting worse all the time. What better time to have them done than when were were going to be gone for a week+ on vacation? Gracie went to stay with her grandparents and Riley went to his usual place, so the house was emptied and ready. The whole first floor has wood floors, so everything had to be moved out. The floor people moved the big furniture, but we had to empty everything and have it ready. It was way too much like moving for my taste and may have cured any crazy moving thoughts I had.
As if by magic, we returned home to this! I should have taken a picture, but near where David is standing, someone before us had started to paint a PINK quilt on the floor. It's been covered with a rug since we moved in, but it's nice that now it's really gone.
