          Well we are almost totally finished with the downstairs.  I threw my back out on Monday and have been suffering all week.  I do something for about 20-30 minutes then sit on a heating pad for 20-30 minutes.  We have installed the doors on the washroom and will be putting in the doors for the pantry a little later this evening.  I have all the pictures that I can stand framed and hung in the staircase.  They look good just randomly placed no pattern just put up where I could reach.  All the frames are black.  I like the look with the new light fixtures we put in the staircase.  Old Victorian style.  Kind of like the drop-down street light very decorative globes.  Tarnish brass really nice looking ones with chain pulls (of course we don’t use the chains but left them for effect). We have one more curtain rod to put up in the computer room and then I am done down here.    

    We bought new flooring for the upstairs bathroom today.  It is called desert fire terra cotta. It will look good up there.  We have to move two cabinets and unload a storage shelf that I have plants on then clean the floor really well and remove some floor trim and then we can start the flooring.  Hubby wants to do that tomorrow.  It will brighten up the room and give it a more warm feeling than a stark feeling. It will look good with our sink and toilet fixtures. 
    I have been getting in AP’s with all of the work this week even though it has been slow going.  I painted kiddo’s closet doors that was not easy and I am feeling it right now.  I feel like I have been doing squats all day.  My sugar has been so so but I have been drinking coke again.  So I have no excuse.  I had a pound loss last week and I am hoping for one again this week.  I must say even if I don’t get one my pants are looser and that is a good thing.  Well got to run have a great weekend and up coming week.
