Today's the day

As you might or might not remember, we've been sleeping in our guest bedroom since about mid-February. Today we put the bed back up and we'll get to sleep in our own bed tonight! Yippee! Our guest bed is very comfortable but the room is small and with two 50-60 pound dogs sprawled on the floor and the king sized bed, it's been way cozy. At least we have a very good idea of how comfortable our guest room is when we have guests staying with us!

I must say that I have really enjoyed having a window directly over our heads since we've been able to open the windows and catch a lovely nighttime breeze through the room. It was awesome last night listening to an approaching thunderstorm and being bathed by the breeze preceding the storm. The lightning strike somewhere close to our house wasn't quite as enjoyable but we didn't lose power so that's good. We'll have two windows again in our own bedroom but they're more offset so all breezes are nice but not directly overhead.

The new carpeting in the bedroom is awesome and the padding underneath has a spill guard protective layer so if one of the dogs barf or has an accident or I spill a glass of iced tea, it won't damage the hardwood floors underneath.

I was putting new outlet covers on the outlets this morning and thinking back to when we dismantled the bedroom and how completely different it will look once we get it all put back together. We've done so much to it and it looks fantastic. Pictures of the entire process will be forthcoming when it's all done. Make sure you have NoDoz in the house for that post.

Johnnie has a couple more courses of tile to put up in the shower, then install the sink base, toilet and vanity. Probably a week or so more work but we're getting close. Very close.
