The contractors started the floors today, and I have to say: We made the right decision! (Of course, Ben only said yes for the real hardwood because quote, "if I don't let you win, you will complain about the laminate everyday for the next 15 years"- oh, he knows me so well!). The floors look absolutely stunning- and they only have the front and dining rooms started- they haven't even sanded or done the trim or anything! I am so incredibly excited for the floors- they are just beautiful!
We live in absolute chaos- the piano is in the kitchen- but, I am sure in the end it will be well worth it!
Then, Audra and I went swimming today and guess who was swimming with us: Mark Koebrich from channel 9 news! He was there with his grandson- now I can say we've swum with a celebrity! He is very tall, by the way- and has absolutely perfect teeth!
