Hubby is out of town for 3 weeks (yes we just closed on a house AND I have a newborn as well as the two older girls, great timing hunny) and my mother-in-law and I are starting to fix up the house.
The house really was move-in ready, but we wanted to put down some new flooring and paint all the rooms AND take down the popcorn before we moved in. So since hubby is out of town, and we don't want to be set back 3 weeks, we have started!
However, like I said, decision making is not my forte and we have painters coming on Tuesday and I have to decide on colors for 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and the bonus room/hallway/downstairs (it's all connected) by then!
Also, I have to choose new flooring; we are going with wood-laminate because of our 100lb dog and the backyard pool. I wasn't aware of this, but actual wood flooring will swell if liquid sets on it too long. Not good with a backdoor that opens onto the pool patio. Also, the 100lb dog would destroy the wood within a month. So ok, we decided on wood-laminate... but the color? Ah!!
This entire week I've been entertaining (and dealing with) contractors at the house; flooring, drywall guy, A/C companies, yard guys... luckily the girls LOVE running around the empty house.
Too many decisions. Clearly I'm not made out for this house fixing up stuff.
Thankfully my mom got to town on Thursday so I have a little help over here.
