Exhaustion

I’ve been disconnected from all things computer related for days now. More by choice than force. We spent the entire weekend sanding down the original hardwood floors in our house. By Sunday afternoon, we had managed to prime three rooms in preparation for painting, and get all the floors down to the natural wood.

This week we both feel like we’re working two jobs. He is teaching during the day and then spending nights staining the floors. I am being a mom and packing during the days and then spending my evenings grading papers.

We are now completely aware of why companies charge thousands of dollars to refinish floors. It turns out that they are worth every single penny.

It is exhausting. We are exhausted. But in that exhaustion, we are so thankful that we have a house.

When I have a second to breathe (and not breathe in laundry, papers, paint, or wood stain) I’ll post some pics of the house.
