Sooo, Where Have You Been Jerisew(s)?????

Hello, Blogland! I bet you thought I jumped in the lake, never to surface. Well, I didn't do that, but what I have been doing is LOTS of work...non stop. This past week was intense, but fruitful...carpet in, lights, beds set up. I found that ALL the bedding that was put into plastic bags, clean, over the winter construction, got very constructiony smelling, so I did about 12 or 13 loads of bedding. Moved furniture around, unpacked boxes, cleaned construction dirt, cleaned construction dirt, cleaned construction get the picture. I made curtains for all the guest bedroom windows, and one shower curtain. I have lots more windows to do, but it will happen. This weekend we have 4 out of 6 of our kids and their families here. So far we are finding the new areas are working well. We still have lots of details to finish, but it will happen! All the kids love the new spaces. Carl and I are both exhausted, and Carl's back is almost shot. But, we have three days of family fun, forcing us to take a break from the construction and just enjoy the space so far. As with any construction, it is taking a bunch longer than we thought. But, it is so much better than we thought it was going to be. A few pictures are posted. Thank you for your concerns by my silence. I am surprised by how many people have contacted me to see what was wrong! Jerilynn
