A New Floor and Two Cripples

Vanessa's husband Rick and his brother Bob came last weekend and did a hardwood flooring blitz. We had purchased the wood a few months ago and were eager to get it installed. Now that the work is done KJ and I are really pleased with the change in appearance but not without it's side effects. Kelly got a staf infection from her recent surgery and needed all of last week to stay home and recover. I'm still healing from my rotator cuff injury and seem to always re-strain it the moment I feel better. For me this injury is going on months now. It sucks in the busy spring season to feel so useless and have to endure the ongoing discomfort.

Super duper thanks to Rick, Van, & Bob for their incredible quality of work. Also thanks to all our friends who showed up to help on Sunday as we tore up the floors and prepped everything for Rick and Bob.
Lino! We pulled up the carpet and underlay to find a lovely layer of lino as well? Apparently at one time our whole house must have been lino.
Thank goodness the lino wasn't glued down very well. It came up pretty easy and only took a few hours to completely remove.
Molly of course found a house free of furniture to be a wonderful new playground.
Doug and I doing what we could to help. Yes, I can sort boards...
And Molly can line up screws for Bob. Yippe no more squeeks in the floor.
Doesn't it look nice!
