The floor

We spent all weekend trying to finish the floors: cleaning, face nailing, sanding multiple times, a quick two-hour trip to Home Depot for more supplies, cleaning again and sealing. 

Nathan tells me that home improvement (like, say, laying and finishing one's own floor), is for men what childbirth is for women. They forget all the pain and exhaustion once it's over and are excited to do it again. And then that new project begins and suddenly they remember just how exhausting it is.

Today we're both really glad our little house is just that: little.
