If we were having coffee, I could only offer you instant coffee this weekend. We were getting things done in the house, hands-on!
There is nothing so rewarding as getting things done yourself. Don’t get me wrong. I am thankful beyond words for our Serbian construction workers who have been camping at our renovation site for the last three months with a crappy bathroom and a next to nothing kitchen, working around the clock to get it done.
But this weekend the kids stayed elsewhere so we could get our hands dirty ourselves. We sanded all the walls to get that ultra smooth finish. So I had dust everywhere, my hair felt like straw and my arms felt sore from the Karate kid sand-the-wall-moves. But boy, that felt GOOD.
If we were having coffee, it wouldn’t be for the weekend but a Monday morning one as I wait for the floor guy to come. It won’t be to long before I can offer you one of the Nespresso limited edition coffee from my brand new kitchen.
Bare with me!
