It’s almost the new year! Hooray! This whole month has completely flown by. Right before Christmas, I got some nasty stomach bug and took nearly a week to get back on solid foods. A week! Just when I’m starting to feel normal, my washing machine floods my kitchen. Since I have engineered hardwoods, they have to be replaced. I was kinda shocked. There is water all the way into the living room! Crazy! There were no pictures, just panic.
I’ve already bought a new washer and dryer set. In Oklahoma there is a rebate up to $680 for gas dryers, so I’m pretty much getting a free dryer. It was about time to upgrade since I’m not even sure how old the washer was. It came with the house and worked for us for two years, but we couldn’t expect that to last forever. Sigh. And boy did it go out with a bang.
So this is how I’m starting 2012! In complete chaos!
I’ve still got a ton of Christmas littering the house. While I’m semi putting that away when the brief minutes of motivation strikes, I’m mostly getting furniture out of the way and hopefully into a somewhat livable arrangement rather than haphazardly thrown into other rooms and the garage. The floors are getting pulled up on Tuesday and who knows when something else will go in. I haven’t even gone to see whats available. I’m pretty sure, I’ll go with the exact same color/width/finish because all of the bedrooms have this wood (which aren’t going bye bye) and I think it would look so weird with a completely different wood on each other. Any thoughts, or advice is appreciated!
I hope everyone else has a blast ringing in the new year and that it gets off to a great start! Go TwentyTwelve!
