Woodlawn // weekending

01.28.13

Another weekend at Woodlawn means a few more steps forward on progress. And as with any remodeling project, there have been bumps in the road.

I've been scheduling the arrival of everything from flooring to appliances and kitchen cabinets. And even with my cushions for setbacks and issues, things are still "lost" or there's "no word from the manufacturer".

The flooring debacle was a huge headache. Now the dishwasher is MIA. And the kitchen cabinets have no expected arrival date, despite the fact that I was given next week as an arrival date and I just bought a plane ticket for Dan's brother-in-law to come out and install them…with a cushion for "issues". So we're sweating a few things around here.

Not only have I memorized the number for Home Depot, I've also memorized the number menus. Press 3 for kitchens. 5 for flooring. 0 for customer service…

In the meantime, we keep taking little steps forward.

This weekend and last, we investigated a leak in the den. Expected with any old house.

We moved a few things into the attic which means the girls rediscovered some favorite toys that had been stashed away. And I had to shoo little hands from opening up boxes of packed up, too-small clothes and shoes. The rediscovering of these things is like a mini-Christmas.

So we're moving forward. Little by little. I feel like we are on the cusp of things getting really crazy. Good crazy. But crazy nonetheless.

Hope you all had a good weekend, too…more soon!

  1. What a stunning space you have there! Oh my. The only thing I can imagine making it better is the addition of the beautiful life you make for your family.

    It’s all just rather stunning.Peace 🙂

  2. Keep your chin up! I’d tell you to just imagine how awesome it’ll be once done, but I suspect you already spend your time doing that. It’s got beautiful bones, after all, and a diligent workforce.

  3. oh, molly…. it is beyond amazing… i have such a thing for old houses and for restoring them!!! (having done it once, i would do it again in a heartbeat… although that was pre-kids) praying for you and your family, though. i can only imagine the stress. xoxo

  4. love your color choices…livens it up fo’ sure. did they do the walls yet? keep an eye on those boxwoods…i got so many weedy vines out of them, i’m sure some will come creeping back in when it warms up….as if you won’t have enough to keep an eye on…xo
