Aaron's Version of Nesting

Exhibit A, our kitchen floor:

We had this vague plan a while back that we wanted to rip out our nasty tile kitchen floor (I know, doesn't sound nasty, but it was these off-white textured tiles that were poorly grouted and showed every little bit of dirt), put in a wood laminate floor, and paint the cabinets. The whole prospect seemed a bit daunting, and I figured we certainly didn't have time before the twins came, so I didn't think any more of it.

Friday, Aaron finished his last big project (insulating his workshop in the basement). And we need to order a dumpster. Well, he figured, if we were going to get the dumpster, he might as well tear up the kitchen floor! Ha. This was a lot of hard work that he did while I was out of the house with Hulk yesterday afternoon and this morning. When the man in motivated, he works FAST. Hulk is napping, and Aaron is a Home Depot getting some supplies. I bet I have a new floor by the end of the weekend.

It'll look a little weird until we paint the cabinets - it's a lot of wood - but Aaron's uncle (the one that painted the twins room) already has volunteered his services for this winter.

So. To review. I seem to organize when I'm nesting. Aaron starts (and finishes) large projects. When I asked him what he is going to do when all these projects are done? He said - sit on the couch and play with my babies. Sounds like a good plan to me!

Wow! That's amazing.

You definitely got your money's worth on the the dumpster. ;-)

I can't wait to see the new floor.

Wow, I am very impressed. Way to go, Aaron!

Nothing like doing it all at once, right? I seem to function the same way...I wait until the worst possible time to start any project.

Yeah for Aaron, good guy! I can't wait for him to sit down and play with your babies! It's going to be awesome, all of it!

You are so, so lucky. My bathroom sink(the one in the master bedroom) went kerflooey tonight and John (remember him, the not handy husband) insisted on "fixing" it. we've shut off the water (well mostly) to the sink now and I will be calling the plumber in the morning. We still have the holes in the bathroom and kitchen ceiling from the last plumbing disaster.

You are lucky, lucky, lucky, he's handy and was able to make 3 babies with you and did I mention he's handy!!!!!!!!!

Sob. Not bitter. Nope. Not me.
