You Make Me a Better Person ~

The last time I blogged, I was hiding in my room from clouds of grout dust. (Vacation?)Β Since then it’s been go~ clean~ move~ go~ and “have you seen??…..” The father-son craftsmen that put our floor down were a breath of fresh air. An unbelievable work ethic. Amazing.

Waiting over night for leveling to dry

I wonder who will find this one day?

I wonder who will find this one day?







While not everything is put back together, the big job is finished. We are pleased. And now we will spend these last few days of this week seeking out a little fun and relaxation. I’ll let you know if we find it!

Today I thought of each of you….I thought of what I say to you at least once a week. I had to remind myself to practice what I preach. “Be Nice to People. You Never Know What They May Be Dealing With.” Thanks guys….you make me a better person. Have a wonderful rest of the week, friends.

Happy Birthday to Me πŸ™‚

  4. Happy Birthday, Paula! The flooring is gorgeous. What a beautiful room. And how cute are you two to put your love heart under the floor. πŸ™‚ I hope the rest of your birthday week is nonstop fun!!

    • πŸ™‚ Thanks, Maddie. I was telling hubby this morning that you guys were off (but working) this week. He said, “We should meet them half way πŸ˜‰ ) Hubby made the heart….cool, huh? Hope your week is going well! β™₯

      • Your hubby is so sweet. πŸ™‚ It took several days, but Rich has repaired the motorcycle, and we are still packing boxes to ship my used book business out of here on Saturday. Our son will be down to help, and then the three of us are going out to dinner. I am so excited to start my new life on May 1st. A clean house and all the time to write that I want.

        I have a feeling we will meet one day, Paula. πŸ™‚

      • Good for Rich! Bet you are both feeling great about the repairs being finished. Our house is on it’s way to being “spring cleaned”. Of course, we were FORCED into it…..but now I am inspired to finish the entire thing next week. YaY for you! A new life and you can go help Susan, as well! (btw, hubby says half was is Arkansas….does that work for you?!?!)

      • We are in NE Ohio – Near the Akron area. I think halfway is more likely around St. Louis, Missouri. Maybe this fall!

      • Have you ever thought of relocating so our halfway could be, oh, maybe Hawaii?

    Stunning flooring … coming from the country with wooden floors since stone age *smile –
    We tried this with fully carpet for a couple of years and then we went back to our wooden boards.
    Moving to UK they had fully carpet in bathrooms too and kitchen … couldn’t believe it. The room gets a glow to it .. and looks so much brighter … fantastic job. I can understand why you are pleased with it. it’s Oak ????? Have a great weekend now and enjoy your lounge and floor.

    Spectacular new look with the floors. I’m repeating what everyone else has said but there isn’t a “like” button like in Facebook.

    • πŸ˜‰ The only “down” side is that since we have two dogs and it is raining today….we are having to an extra amount of paw wiping! Of course, they don’t care one way or the other! πŸ˜‰

      Thanks and have a smiling weekend! πŸ˜‰

  20. The floors are just beautiful! That is a big job, but now that the work is done, you can enjoy! πŸ™‚ What a lovely message to share with fellow bloggers. That is particularly kind, and I hope you also have a wonderful weekend. πŸ™‚

    Wow, Paula, the new floor is beautiful Lots of work! I’m jealous. We are still thinking about redoing ours. Seeing how beautiful yours turned out makes me think we need to take the leap! Happy birthday, and enjoy the time together. Relax and have fun! πŸ™‚

  22. May the remainder of the week be wonderful. The new floors are beautiful.

  23. The floor looks gorgeous! Totally worth the struggles to get it in my opinion.
