thank goodness for the fan


I can't really write a very long post, it's after 1:00 a.m. and we finished the reno - just barely. It was too late and too dark and I was too exhausted to take any pictures for you yet. Pepper stopped by in the afternoon to witness the bedlam: a fridge that didn't fit (into the carefully planned kitchen reno - how in the name of Martha Stewart did that happen?), a cleaning lady that didn't show, a rainstorm while the movers loaded in the staging furniture, and me working The Fan right out of her manicure. The Fan was on site from 9:00 a.m. until we packed it in at midnight, there to watch me hang the last painting on the wall.

Worst part is, she's back tomorrow morning with The Secret Weapon to do some more touchups just before the open house in the afternoon. You know, the fiddly, stupid things that just can't go right on the last day. Like putting a doorknob on the front door... why is The Fan pressed into service yet again?

Veto, Loopy and I are off to Toronto tomorrow (whoops, make that in four hours!) to see family, the Blue Jays, The Jonas Brothers, and my doctor. I'll leave you with another wedding picture and my thanks to everyone who participated in my Virtual Wedding Party on Thursday. I'll see you when I get back.

Poor you! Why is it Murphy's Law always comes into play? Grrrrr. Well, you're almost there! Enjoy your weekend. Can't wait to see your post on your weddings! Sorry I missed it. Was in the car for 7 hours driving from 'bama to TN. Yuk. xo

The Fan & the Secret Weapon were there because they know you'll be there at midnight fiddling with the doorknob on Loopy or Buddy's front door one day.I'm looking forward to the pictures though I already know the reno will be fantastic. Have a great holiday. Throw kisses to the Jonas Bros for Lizzie and me.

Even in chaos, the house looks fantastic and so did the Fan and Saucy! (they were both covered in dust and paint mind you but that just added to the whole look!)

As always, I am amazed at how you can always pull things together! I am wondering however, what the heck did you do to get the fridge in??!!)

Love the wedding picture too. That is a shot that says it all.

Enjoy your vacation! Am looking forward to read the results of the reno and hopeful house-sale!

Honestly girls, like so many things in my life, that reno would never have been done on time without The Fan! And The Secret Weapon too.
