Monday for Labor Day the miracle began. With rollers in hand, we started to paint every room in the house except the Master bedroom and laundry room. In addition, my Dad pruned the tree in the front yard, and Sweetheart put together the shelves in the basement. They would only stop for food. Scott, my brother, sent his girls to pick us corn and apples.
Tuesday the boys went to school and Sweetheart to work. My parents rolled some more. My Mom became a circus performer by climbing a ladder to get a really tough spot in our stairwell. Tuesday evening around 11 pm the house was painted- rolled and edged.

I continued throughout the week to do touch up work and paint trim. We were told that the tile work would begin on Tuesday. On Monday night we disconnected the washer and dryer and moved them into the loft area. On Tuesday we learned that the person who was going to start the tile work decided to move to Wisconsin, and the tile instillation was pushed off until Thursday.
The man who is doing the tile work is taking his time. He's been here on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and has finished the laundry room.
Carpet will come this coming week, and we will be able to move into the house. We are currently using 2 rooms.
We attended the Fort Collins Temple Open House on Friday evening.
