~Still here…Just a lot going on~

It has been awhile since I posted to my blog…just a lot of things going on. My mom was in the hospital…her blood pressure keeps going up way too high and no medicine seems to be helping with lowering it. So my dad and mom wasn’t able to get together with us for Thanksgiving this year, so we took dinner to them.

My brother wasn’t able to be with us either, so we took him food too. He has a bulging disk in his back and is in a lot of pain. He can’t get in to see a specialist until sometime in January. I feel so bad for him.

On top of that going on…we’ve been working in our living room/ dining room, taking up the old carpet.


There are hardwood floors underneath the carpet and it seems to be in good shape except a couple of places. Which I think we can take care of.


We also took down some wallpaper border that had been up for several years and the walls looked like this after taking it down.


So we had to repaint the walls and I still don’t have all of that done yet.


Now I’ll share what we did get done.

The corner fireplace is done…


The TV wall is done…


The clock wall is done…it is between the living room and dining room.


The rest of the carpet will be up tomorrow, but I won’t get to the rest of the painting until after Christmas. Lucky for us…we painted the walls the same color as before.

I hope to get my Christmas tree up tomorrow…so I’ll be back soon to share my Christmas decorating.

Until next time….

Blessings from me to you. ~Cindy

    Cindy- I know it is crazy to try to do things this time of year- I do the same thing. Sorry that your mom and brother are having health issues. Sometimes we just feel helpless when it comes to “fixing” things for family. Hope you have a blessed Sunday- xo Diana

    I know this is a busy time of year for most of us but to be dealing with home reno and a sick family member can put you over the top! I love your wood floors that you’re uncovering. I hope that everything works out for you this month.

    Oh Cindy, I am loving everything here…from those lovely wood floors to the canning jar light fixture! I’d say you have been busy with all of this and ill members of your family, which I hope are feeling much better by now.
