Day 15: Home Improvement

Ah, the stuff of life! Yesterday I was thankful for my washing machine being fixed. I went a full week without laundry with a sick household. Ugh! We had piles and piles, but it was back and running yesterday and I was VERY thankful for that. Today I am thankful for home improvement projects. We are getting hardwood flooring put in this week in our main living and dining area. I have looked forward to this for years, so I'm very excited! Here is a before picture.
Because of this, we will be spending most of this week at my parents house and I will probably be unable to post many pages of my journals. We'll see what I can do. I have had several questions about what I am journaling in and if it is a "real" book. Yes, indeed it is. Here is my post about it before I began this challenge. It is a book that was bound for the garbage at the local library and I saved it:) Have a great week!

I would definately go crazy without a washer. I use to live in NYC and I had to walk down two flights of stairs and walk 5 blocks to do my laundry. Of course I didn't have two children then, but it was my least favorite thing to do. Now I don't mind doing the laundry except when Ethan and Maggie try to help me and end up unfolding everything!
