The storm before the calm

This is what our house looks like right now:

Where’s the furniture, you ask? 

Right here, in the living room:



And here, in the family room (where we’re sleeping):IMG_4783

The bathroom is nearing completion, but still needs lighting, plumbing (as in, a toilet and faucets), a mirror (on order), a frameless glass tub surround (on order), trim, shelving in the linen closet, and a whole host of other tidbits.


My fear is that we’ll get this far, finish the must-haves, and then put all the finishes on hold.  That damn 85% rule!  (Many projects around here get 85% finished and then someone moves on to something new…)

When my life is topsy-turvy like this – home in disarray, career in the air, and no baths!! -- my mind can’t function well.  I can’t think clearly without an orderly physical environment.  Does that make me shallow?  (Or just German…?)

And just to cap it all off, there’s a RAT loose in the house --  one that Boo and Bailey seem to just be ignoring!  He must have been hanging out in the duct system and when those heater vents came off, he made himself at home, even helping himself to the fruit in our fruit bowl, which was the first clue of his presence.  The second being his brush by my leg as he ran by.  I thought it was a cat, until I saw him scamper away.  Eeeewwww!

Please, can we just get some ORDER around here?!

Forget the bath, forget the family room, forget the linen closet, I wouldn't take another breath until that rat was dead.

Stop feeding the cats. They'll get that rat when they get hungry enough.

I thought the bathroom was your last major renovation to be done?
Yes the 85% rule, we are victim of that in our own house. Bad thing is....after while you don't notice the 15% incompletion anymore, which is worse!

Eeeeeeeeeeek on the rat! Seriously, that is the worst of your post. Can you put cat/dog safe poison?
