We accomplished a lot today. Dad will have both fans hung by tonight and we painted almost all of the bedroom including the ceiling & trim. Dad put a new door knob on one of the closet doors cuz there was no key for it. We also painted by the door, under the table area and one more wall by the hall. We finished the other side of the hall today as well. The floor is 1/2 way clean and things are looking a little more in order. Also the red wall in the living room is done and the rest of the shelf lining in the kitchen is taped down and in place. This morning we started working around 8. We took a quick lunch break and then worked till 2:30. It seemed like 8:30 by the time we were done. Mom just got back from shopping and she got all the pots and pans, knifes... We couldn't think of what else there was to buy when she called and said the car was packed full:) She also picked up the big rug for the living room. Mom's an expert at making a house a home.
