Well, here I am - a week later with not only pictures, but some super awesome updates on the house. Good news first, here are the updated pics:
The sitting room-where I reflect on...stuff.
The living room (there are more pics of the LR in the Picasa link to the right):
So...everything is pretty much wrapped up, except for the major things that we want to do: replace the god awful backsplash, countertops, new roof, build a carport, new deck, landscaping, paint the house, etc., etc., and so on and so forth. But wait - I didn't mention a new drain line in there!!!!
