Fabulous Friday

Yay for Friday!!!! I am spending my day working on FMLA forms, charts for next Monday and Tuesday, and cleaning my office. I can't believe how dusty it gets over just a few days! Yuck! With it being Friday, it also means that it is only a week or so from our completion date!!!!!!! We went to the house last night and it was wonderful being able to actually turn on or off a light! We haven't done that since we went to bed the night before the fire! Just yesterday, the remainder of our light fixtures/fans were hung, cabinets are in and on the wall, closet organizer systems are in place, all the damaged vinyl has been replaced, and now we are just waiting on hardwood, countertops, carpet, and plumbing. You know, all the pretty stuff to make it complete!!!! So, barring any major crisis or catastrophe (and we do tend to have a lot of those! ha!), we should be complete next Friday at the latest!!!!

Speaking of crisis, let me update on you on light fixture crisis '09. My builder went by the lighting store and they actually had ONE and only one of our foyer fixtures in stock! So, obviously I told him to go ahead and pick it up! Then there is the issue of my beautiful, most favorite fixture in the dining room. We have found a way to rig it up and it will be usable. So, that was the end of my mini crisis of the week! :-)

I will be posting some pictures this weekend to show our end of week progress. Hopefully, but not likely, we will have countertops today. I am not really looking for them until Monday though.

Hope everyone has a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!
