9 Nights Away

Tonight is the first night that the kids have spent in our house since last Thursday-9 nights away from home. Why you ask? Hubby has been working on hardwood floors for the bedrooms. He laid raw wood floors and stained them in the bedrooms. Then he urethaned the whole house. We had to stay off of the floors with no heavy furniture for 7 days. He finished them last Sunday...so that makes today 7 days off of them. 
Here's our girl's room with the raw floors: 

And our boy's room with raw floors:

We're thankful for our families for letting us crash with them this week! The great thing about this project is that everything got dusted and cleaned! Everything went in garage for the week, and then everything had to come back in this weekend. It's like we're moving except it's back into the same house. I've gotten lots organized and tried to de-clutter too. The rough part about this project is that we're "wore slap out!"
Yesterday Hubby and I worked from morning to midnight. We skipped breakfast and lunch, and finally had to make time for dinner. Then we got up and started again this morning. There is still more to do, but it will have to wait for another day.
It's nice to have everyone home after 9 nights away. I'm sure we'll all sleep well in our own beds. Wishing you all a good night!
