Retreat From What?





Everything is higgledy-piggledy. Our floor in the family room is being laid again as the wood buckled. All furniture is now in the living room. Access for the carpenter is through the deck. I hope it won't be for long......"Well done!" to families in days gone by, with large families and smaller dwellings. They probably did not have the burden of too many toys or furnishings of today's society.

We may come into this world empty handed, but boy it sure doesn't take long to amass stuff. We had to move out of our place when my twins were 9 months old and between them and the then 5 yr old, I was amazed at how much stuff they had.
Thankfully, because it was an insurance situation we had movers do it for us.
I hope your reno goes smoothly and quickly. Your place will feel spacious when you can put everything back :)

Oh how sweet - now your house looks like ours does all the time LOL. I bet the girls are finding it kind of fun, for now at least?
