Half my condo is empty. All the kitchen cabinets and stove are in the hallway. It is rather weird.

I started this weekend really upset that things weren't getting done. I felt super behind. Turns out I should have been worried because my friends and family are awesome.

My list of to-do items is getting much smaller. I have some doors and a window to finish. After the floor is done, I have to put the lower cabinets back in place.

Actually, I think that is about it. The molding isn't done but that can be done when Zach & Henrietta are home again. Most of the baseboard is done, it just needs to be installed.

The bathroom is going to have to get finished in a few weeks. It is mostly easy contained tasks, so that is good.

The electrictions will be back in a couple weeks to put the fixtures in, which will be the point when I'll feel like this is "done".

I am so excited.
I made it 12 days before breaking down crying that I missed Henrietta. I don't know if that is something to be proud of or not. I mean, I decided to send her away and have kept myself really busy but what does it say that I was mostly okay that she was gone?

Okay, that isn't right, I wasn't okay hat she is gone, I just put it out of my mind. Tonight I could for some reason.

Tomorrow I have lots of things to do I the condo, mostly peeping moulding & doors and priming walls. Sunday I have a pretty packed day.

I leave for Billings in 12 days. So half way there.

This weekend I got a good amount of work done.

I got the majority of the walls patched. I have a couple more layers to do over a really bad spot and a few holes that I didn't patch until yesterday. I am hoping to get them done tonight. I'll sand once my contacts get in because I don't want to damage my new glasses.

I bought a new toilet on Saturday (it was on sale!) and removed the old one. When I did that a bunch of tiles came up with the toilet, so I had to repair that before I could put the new one in. I got that done yesterday and grouted it last night, so I should also be able to get that done tonight.

I also removed the tile from our main shower window because I am overly ambitious. Also, I was pretty sure it was leaking and if I am going to repair it, I have to do it when Zach isn't around because I'll just take baths while it dries and he would be taking showers. The plan is to paint it tonight with a couple coats of oil based primer and then tile it with larger tile that would have less places to fail.

If that doesn't take up my entire night, I am going to spend some time scraping wallpaper off the one wall I didn't patch. There is nothing glamorous about wallpaper.

The ceiling dude starts tomorrow, which makes me really excited. Things are going to start looking good! Woo!!
I am a little weepy about Zach & Henrietta leaving tomorrow.

Then it will be 23 days before I see them again.

The remodel has begun. This is half way through. I should have taken a "before" short but I forgot. Stay tune for progress shots. Also posts about how I miss my baby and how I am tempted to take a road trip across North Dakota in January to spend a day and a half with her.

I am getting a cold. This is a terrible time for me to have a cold since we have so much to do in the next five days. Plus I want to spend as much time as I can with my baby.

Zach, who has moved much more than me, tells me that it won't take long to pack up the kitchen, which is the part that worries me the most. However, we also have to move all the cabinets by Monday, and that does worry me!
