Prepare Yourself for Chaos

Today is my husband's 40th Birthday...I'm throwing a party for him on Saturday.  
Bryan's 40th Birthday Party 
(This is the E-Invite I sent)

Our house would cause many of you to shudder in shock and disgust...so brace yourselves. You may want to bookmark this page so you can show your husbands, wives, cats, or neighbors how much more clean and organized your house is than mine.  

(I bet you're thinking, "she's not really going to do this is she") Yep, I'm doing it.  It's actually kind of liberating...in an edited-so-you-don't-see-the-really-bad-mess kind of way.

To begin our lovely tour, there's a piano in my foyer...
Funny story - the previous homeowners left this piano behind for us.  When you move it, the front legs fall off.  Good fun when there are 2 of you moving it, and one of those 2 people only has 1 usable hand.
Pianos are heavy.

Then, we took out a closet, so there's a hole in the fireplace (maybe we should have checked that before ripping out the closet)...and also a hole in the ceiling that's waiting for my dad (Hi dad!) to help us rewire the electric.

(here's how it looked with the closet)

...and back to the tour...
As you can see, there's quite a lot of  unopened flooring....526.8 sq ft of it to be exact.

Finally, I welcome you to join me in our sun room (main living area)...
All of these toddler treasures, 2 couches, a chair, 2 ottomans, tv stand, tv, 2 tables...will be moved today so we can put down the new floor.
I wanted to paint all of the wood trim around the 14 windows in the sun room white before Saturday...but I don't see that happening.

And just to make it all a little more interesting...we are all sick and I found my waterlogged camera sitting next to the kitchen sink (had a clogged sink last night)...and I have 2 more wreaths to make and ship by Friday.

Don't you feel better now :)  Please don't feel bad for me...
relax and enjoy the humor of it all....that's what I'm doing, otherwise, I'd go crazy.

Don't forget to join me tomorrow for...

Time to move the furniture, so I'll talk to y'all later :).

take care -

Oh Erin! I'm glad you are not letting all of this get to you! I know how you feel! My house has been a project in the making for almost 6 years, and we're still not finished! I don't have a clue when it will all get done, so like you, I'm just enjoying the journey! We'd make Joyce Meyer proud, wouldn't we? Blessings from Bama!

Cheers to a hot mess! I love it. The end result will be so so worth it. In the mean time, cheers to the Hubs, his birthday and black beer! I can't wait to see the results!
