Remodeling a house is really hard work and I know we chose to do it, but it gets REALLY frustrating for people to put it down and say negative things. Don't you think we want to live in a nice, clean, organized, completely redone house? Do you think we enjoy living with dust all around, laundry ALWAYS needing to be done, boxes of lights, rugs, hardware or appliances that need to be installed, stacks of bills and papers that need to be put away and organized? But we feel good about what we're doing - bringing this house back to life just as quickly as we can, but that takes time, and along the way the house is going to look like a construction zone because THAT'S WHAT IT IS.
Working 3 part time jobs while trying to work on the house is REALLY hard, and as a result we don't have time to pick up every tool that is strewn throughout the house, vacuum, dust, swiffer, or windex every single day. Sorry visitors. So, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. Oh, and don't come over.
