I still have a few bags of trash and recycling to take out. It will feel good to get one room completely finished so that we can put things back in an organized manner.
On Saturday morning, we went to Home Depot to look at vinyl flooring. I choose a brown stone pattern and bought a 12' x 12' piece. I wasn't sure it would fit in the truck but we poked it through the back window and it only hung off the end of the truck by 2'. My niece finished pulling up the staples, then swept and damp mopped the particle board. I am going to put plywood in the hallway because the water damage has made the floor wavy.
Then I let me niece loose with a can of primer and she painted the walls, ceiling and floor. It looks so much brighter in that back room now that the floor and walls are white. Next time I go out there I will have to paint the edge areas with a brush.

Today was Easter so I took the day off which was good because I was really tired. I think I drank the equivalent of 4 Mountain Dews (1 extra large Mt. Dew slushy plus an extra Code Red Mt.Dew later in the day) and I think I finally fell asleep around 3:30am. Next time I am getting the half Coke and half cherry slushy that only has half the caffeine. My sister is visiting so I have 3 house guests plus her dog for the week. I wish I could take the week off and keep working on my property because we are making such great progress but I have to go to my regular job and make some money. I do hope to take a half day for the shed delivery if everything goes as planned. I can't wait to see the shed all set up. It just doesn't seem real yet.
