Flooring complete in both hallways and Jana's office. Home improvements on hold for a couple of weeks so we can rest up for the Bolder Boulder (10K race) on Memorial Day and climbing Gray's Peak on June 1st with No Barrier and Soldiers to Summits.

First order of business today was the lawn. See the contrast with the neighbor's lawn in pic #3. That's what ours looked like this morning. The dogs were getting lost in it!

Mounted my first ceiling fan/light unit this morning in my office. Next up, start laying the wood floor.

Flooring in my office is laid and baseboards are on. I can start moving some of my stuff back in tomorrow then continue the floor out the hallway and to Jana's office.

Then came the flooring in my office, and of course, I had to continue out into the hallway to keep the staggered pattern going. Almost done. Ran out of daylight (okay, I ran out of energy). Sipping on a Stella Artois right now. I'll finish after work tomorrow.

Replacing all the carpeting in the house with wood flooring, one room at a time, starting with the bedroom. Here are some "before" pics.

Are you fucking kidding me? This is not Freedom of Speech. It's not a matter of bad taste. This is Hate-mongering, pure and simple.
