last post of 2005!!!

2005 was a good year for me. Juliana started Kindergarten, Ava started talking in FULL FORCE and Tracey and I moved back to a city. I am posting this from the first floor stairwell of our new house in the Bayview neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI. Go WI!!!!!!

I am taking a break from ripping out the carpet from our first floor (in preparation for the refinishing that will start on monday). Ripping out carpet starts off nice and easy. Then you have to get the tacks up. Then you have to get all the staples up. Then you have to keep reaching for the tissue box to blow your nose since the dust is getting to you. Fun!

I will be posting up before, middle and after pictures of the floor process when i get some time tomorrow. At least I will be able to get the before and middle pictures. :) We have uncovered a pretty nice floor, but one that definitely needs to be sanded and refinished. Wish us luck with the rest of the floors!!!

Anyway, back to the work. To everyone I spent time with in 2005, here's to another year. To everyone i lost contact with or neglected to get back to, i hope to do better next year!
