Good Grief Lynette

 The carpet had all been ripped up before the house was put on the market.  The living room now has bamboo on the floor, tile in the entry, kitchen and dining area.  All the trim has been painted white.
 We are still working on the kitchen.  The floor has been tiled and I am working on refinishing the cabinets.  New counter top has been ordered and we will be tiling the walls under the cabinets.
 This bathtub has been resurfaced and the entire bathroom redone.  It now looks great.
 We even had to replace the front door. The work on the the basement will start on Monday.  All the sheet rock was removed to prove there was no mold.  But the whole place was pretty grim, so it is being redone and the third bathroom in the basement will be roughed into be finished later.
It has been almost two months since I posted anything here.  Life has been busy and I haven't been doing any of my normal things.  Andrew and Theresa are still living with us, but we are hoping they will be in their own place before Christmas.  If not, during Christmas week.  We bought a house several blocks from here.  It had been foreclosed on and we were able to get it for a very good price.  It needed a lot of work which we have been doing.  It still has a way to go, but it doesn't look like it used to.  I will post a few before pictures, but we don't have a lot of finished after pictures yet.  We are still in the great messy stage.
