Tina offers us a great opportunity to do whatever we want with the challenge. Though my post today is not the most visually appealing, it is what has occupied me for over a week!
Our downstairs music room carpet was stained, worn and ugly. We decided last spring to replace it with Luxury Vinyl Plank which is waterproof and easier to keep clean. This involved moving Creighton’s huge CD collection from the CD shelves into boxes.
Creighton worked diligently packing the collection in a way that he would be able to reassemble it fairly easily when the floor was done and the furniture moved back in.
Last Sunday, my niece, her hubby and two young-adult sons arrived to move the furniture into our garage. All went smoothly, and the price of a couple pizzas was all it cost! I love my family to the moon.
Monday morning the flooring installation crew of two arrived. They removed the old carpet and padding, and by noon the new floor was done and the old was gone.
Tuesday I applied restoratives to the wood of the piano, and other furniture that needed it. Wednesday morning, our neighbor helped us move the heavier furniture into the room, and by Thursday night we were enjoying living in the space again.
Now the harder part begins. Creighton wants to winnow down his collection which represents a lifetime of music appreciation and acquisition. It will take time, and that’s okay. With the pandemic raging in our country, we don’t plan to go anywhere except a trip to the beach before Christmas.
Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate uncharted waters.🐾
