Never again....

WOW! Things are hectic around here...I just have one question for myself. WHAT WAS I THINKING? I thought I would get the ball rolling a little early on getting our home in spic and span condition so we can sell her quickly...I decided we needed to update the kitchen, half bath, utility room and then later "after Christmas we would do our bathroom and have the outside painted...then that's it...we'll put it on the market and see what happens. BUT the whole idea of getting new granite counter tops in the midst of Christmas shopping, decorating and general holiday madness...was NOT one of my better ideas...as I stated..."WHAT WAS I THINKING! I've not had so much dust in my home since...well, the last redo! I hate dust by the way...it not only looks bad, but it gives me terrible headaches, swollen eyes, nose and throat...not to mention I heard "someone" say just the other day, it makes me GROUCHY!! Hmmmm...can't imagine why. I spent all weekend cleaning out my kitchen cabinets from dust and debris...along with washing EVERY dish, spoon, spatula and small appliance I have....it was THAT bad! Did you know that granite dust is so fine and light that it can float almost anywhere in your home...YES! I was crazy...I regret that I didn't think it would really be this bad...and I think next time...I'll wait till after a holiday to take on such a project. It is almost done...everything is complete, but today the plumber has to come in an hook up the kitchen sink...THAT is an whole other story...that I will save for another day! YOU won't believe it...suffice it to say, this should have been finished last week, but do to bad roads one day, schedule conflicts and other happenings...it should be finished today...then I get to put everything back to where things belong...all the while trying to keep dusting, finish Christmas "doings" and stay sane....Pictures to follow!!

Have a wonderful Christmas if I don't get to post before then....my kids will all be here...and we are looking forward to fun, relaxing, playing, pampering (for the girls) and just lots of time together, to re-charge for next year...it's going to be a BIG one!!

Just wanted to stop by and wish you a very Merry Christmas! I enjoy your blog so much...even if it does have some granite dust on it!

My goodness... I'm so behind in my little blogging world. I had no idea what all you have been going through. So glad to hear that Jackie is feeling better... I had no idea of her troubles. My prayers are with her.

Regarding your house - I can relate to the dust. Dust has been a part of my life for 4 years now. It's becoming normal. That's bad!

Merry Christmas!!!

Oh dear! I had no idea about granite dust... the installer should have warned you!

Merry Christmas to you, too!

Yeah, probably not one of your best ideas! Sorry, couldn't resist! :) But, look at all that you have behind you, now!

Hope this is your best every Christmas! Enjoy!

I hope you had a good Christmas! I say leave on vacation when you do these projects.......but you're probably too much of a control freak to give the rein to someone else the whole time. :)

Hope your house is all sparkly clean.......then you can come visit mine and get it the same.
