It Has to Get Worse Before It Gets Better

Now that the carpet is decided on, we are pushing to get the living room finished. Today was supposed to be priming, but lots of little wall repairs ate up all of the time. I am hoping soon the pictures in the house won't have the shop vac in them. Sam just wants to rip out the old carpet.
There always was this crack that drove me crazy. Sam cut out material and refilled it. You can see out the window progress on the red house. Well, they have poured the new foundations. Look Ma no walls. Our neighbor Mark dropped off the dumpster and demo bobcat this weekend next door. So as of next week we will have two houses under major renovation on the circle.
Repainting the stair rails. The kitchen is starting to fill up with everything that has to be moved out for carpet.
While Sam was slaving away inside, I got the garden put in. We have a little bit of everything, and a whole lot of little grasses that will be coming up.
I finished grinding/polishing the fireplace surround. Afterward everything got stained to even the colors. When the black stains dries it looks kind of rusty colored. Now all that is left is to wash off the stain and wax it.
