Family Home and Life: Grandparent's Say It Saturday

Hello everyone. Thanks for coming by. I thought I would be showing you pics of my beautiful new carpet today but sadly I can not. You see, last?Thursday?night we started emptying out the house and preparing for carpet to be installed last Saturday.?Unfortunately,?after all the old carpet and pad was removed, we discovered we had a few other issues to deal with before we could install the new. So after a very?frustrating?weekend (yes it was Easter weekend too) and the lost of electricity in 2/3 of the house (which still isn't fixed), we decided to wait until today to have the carpet installation finished up.

Palo Verdes are starting to bloom here; not the greatest pics but they are beautiful!

I would have kids to care for and my husband was dealing with some issues at work that kept him there 12 or so hours a day so having workers in and out of the house during the week seemed to be the straw that would break the camels back. Some how I managed the week here taking care of the kids and juggling other work?responsibilities?with furniture piled up in my craft room/office, and in the kitchen and dining room. I have extension cords running all over the place! Let me tell you, it was a week destined to prove exactly what I am made of - and I am not all that proud of how I handled a few things.?

I did learn two new things though; I am NOT as super of a Super Granny as I had thought. I have my limitations and sometimes Gramma needs a time out and a nap! I also learned that we have 250 square feet of floor space more than I thought and we had to get more carpet. With carpet in only a couple of rooms and all the walls empty I had time to look around and think about my decor and lay out of my furniture. Don't?worry! I am in love with my new carpet color and still LOVE my wall color (even more now that it is not fighting with dark blue carpet!) but I have had a chance to see that I can make some?improvements?with furniture arrangement and yet another de-cluttering! The poor man of the house has been walking on eggs shells fearful of any new ideas I might have and what that may mean in terms of more DIY projects for him! Ha! Only a couple of things my dear! Only a couple!?

All is well that ends well! I will give you an update next week hopefully with pics ;) I did spend a couple of hours last Saturday with my kids and grand kids and it was a nice break.?I do hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend and I would love to hear about it! Want to leave a comment and tell us about it??

I am so glad you stopped by!?
