What have we gotten ourselves into?

So, after many years of longing for beautiful wood floors our time has come to have them installed. I am so excited and can't wait to see them! However, I am not excited about this:

This is what our house looks like right now. The installers came on Tuesday and told us that because of the rain that morning that the install wouldn't be able to be done that day. Something about the wood material and the moisture in the air. They asked "The store told you there would be a possiblity of this, right?" Um...NO! So, we have this situation until Sunday. No furniture to sit on and no floor for Gadisa to play and crawl on in our main living areas. So we are spending much of our time on the front porch and adventuring out throughout town. We spent the majority of the time while the installers were pulling up the carpet looking at each other with that look of "What have we gotten ourselves into!" Oh well, I'm sure it will be worth it when the project is done. Thank god the weather has cooled off a little so we can venture out for walks. Come on Sunday...get here soon!


  1. What a mess! The installers were right though- the wood would warp if it's too humid. Let us know if you want to hang out on some carpet.

  2. Installers!!!! thats just plain old not fair, lol. but lucky you! laying flooring is painful...ouch! Can't wait to see pic's of your pad all done up. wood floors are the bestest.

    erm. one complaint. this post was very noticably lacking the the lil' G pic's department. just sayin'... not cool at all. don't get me wrong, I'd still love you sans Oliver Gadisa BUT pic's of his sweet face kinda give me my fix:)
    oh, by the way, I am now Auntie to a boy named Oliver adopted by my sister !!!!(she named him) he's the same age as your son! (insert happy dance here)

  3. Haha, very true. I am busy taking lots of photos of our little guy so I have more to post on the blog. Oliver is such an amazing name and so close to me. Always have loved it so much.
