How many 2-year-olds do you know that could tackle that list of chores. The funniest part of the whole thing, is how terrible she is at keeping her own room picked up. She will take every toy she owns out of the toy box, only to walk away empty handed, then whine and cry when I ask her to pick it up. Yet she will do all of my daily cleaning without so much as a whimper. I don't get it.

1- More sanding in the house-I guess I didn't learn my lesson the first time.
2-Paint that I spilled in the kitchen; it's OK though we were going to put in a new floor anyway. It is also the "kitchen floor before"
3-kitchen chair "before" (all 4 look the same)
4-kitchen table before
5-kitchen table and chairs "after"
6-kitchen chairs, table, and floor "after"
7-I didn't take a before, but this is the bathroom light after I painted over the shiny brass, but it has since been painted a blackish color, so I guess this is kind of a before.
8-Chris asked if I needed help carrying the table in the house- of course I told him "no, I got it." So this is an "I told you so" for him. I will take help when needed/offered. I dropped the table while I was trying to open the screen door, carry my Gatorade, and the table into the house all at one time. Oh well, I can spray some more paint on it when it is warmer outside.

Before (prepped for paint)
Do you see the resemblance in this picture?
This is the hard wood floor in my bedroom before.Here is the exact same spot on the floor (different time of day, so the lighting was different), also known as the "after". Can you believe the difference? All that and I didn't even have to sand or refinish it. It found some really cool wood restorer and wax stuff. WOW!!I started sanding in the basement because it was sooo cold outside. I learned why this is a bad idea.
The sanding project-REMEMBER, DON'T DO IT IN THE HOUSE!!!
I will show "after" another time, I lost my camera for the moment and I haven't uploaded it yet.
The bathroom is finally finished; for the "before" pics go look at the previous post. I am sooo glad to have this one complete, and I love how it turned out. It is still SUPER SMALL, but it isn't electric yellow anymore!! I LOVE it compared to before.
I still have quite a few more to post about, but I haven't uploaded the rest of the pictures. I will save the fun for another day.
