A Week Later...

It's Saturday night and my lovely husband is on his way back home from a long (for him) and stressful (also him) weekend in Nebraska. From our conversations it sounds like things went well with his graduate school interview(s) and his chances for acceptance are good. Of 100 applicants, they asked 13 to come interview. Of the 13 they will accept 7-10 candidates. Of those 13 that interviewed, he was 1 of only 3 men. His chances are pretty good, but still, cross your fingers and keep us in your prayers!

He said the city (Lincoln, NE) was small and quaint, reminding him of Provo. Good and bad things, in my book. Remember when you were in school and you were tired of being in school and just had to get out of the city? That's how I've been with Provo/Orem. Orem's actually not that bad. But man, I had to get out of Provo :)

Anyways, our floors are done! I need to take a few pictures, but I'm going to wait until all the little details are done and put away. I am going to repaint our baseboards and add some shoe moulding and THEN it'll finally be done.

After my parents left this morning I started vacuuming up all the sawdust, tossing the leftover wood/cut materials, and SWIFFERING. Oh my gosh, I think I've gone over this floor 3 times already. Finally I grabbed my trusty old kitchen broom and did a lap around the floor, vacuumed up the pile and used my Swiffer Vac (Thanks, Hill!) one last time.

So, after I finish adding felt pads to all the kitchen chair legs and our ottoman, I need to hurry and put away the laundry from our bed and straighten up the house before Ryan comes home and just collapses from exhaustion.
