In January we discovered that grouting basketweave still sucks donkey balls
We spent a lot of time in the shower also, making the shower curb and tiling the floor.
We basically spent the entire month of February tiling the walls of the bathroom
Oh my god we tiled and tiled and tiled and tiled.
March was so exciting because we finished TWO rooms: the TV room
And the back bathroom
April rolled around and we spent a considerable amount of time digging under the house and in the backyard
Thanks to our family we got our drywell done and made some serious headway on the earthquake retrofit.
May came and while it was the month of our due date, Zoe wasn't making her arrival so I decided to mulch our entire front yard myself at 41 weeks pregnant
In June we had a baby :)
Oh, and we were on the front page of the SF Chron Home & Garden section :)
By July we got back in the swing of things and made some serious progress on the laundry room
We painted, laid the floor and put our CDs (all 2400 of them) back in.
We moved on to the hallway in August and I painted my third room by the time Zoe was 2 months old
In September we sort of wandered around a bit, though we did complete the hallway and got that one fully checked off the list!
October was the month of working on our bed
We tested stains, and after I stained the face frames like shit I fixed them all up nice and pretty.
By November we were really slowing down on house project - life got busy with Zoe and LOTS of handyman jobs, but I was happy to finish the large paintings for our bedroom
And then December hit and I fell over. Well, metaphorically speaking at least. I of course took a bit of a blogging break, but that doesn't mean we didn't work on the house while I was away. In fact, I can't wait to share with you some exciting news...
The bed isn't done, but we are officially not sleeping on a mattress on the floor anymore, hoo-fucking-ray!
It's always really fun to write these posts because it makes me feel like we really accomplished some shit. While it's apparent that things really slowed down around October and November time, I really can't fault us at all, I mean, there's this little adorable lady to play with
Happy New Year everyone! And may we all kick some serious fucking ass in 2014.
