Midsummer Madness

Probably time
We've finally decided that we must refinish the floors.  I refinished them once, right before we moved in, but 15 years and a half dozen children later, they are in pretty bad shape.

I looked up some information on floor refinishing and it suggested that two adults, without pets, would need to refinish the floor at least every 10 years, but if you had a child or a dog, you'd probably need to do the floors every three or four years. 

Seriously?  Does anyone refinish their floors every three or four years?

Office before

The problem, of course, is not the refinishing of the floors. 

The problem is that you have to remove everything from the rooms before you refinish the floors.
Homeschool  room before


Even in the closets.

Homeschool room mostly after
That means everything out of the dining room (easy), the living room (not so easy), the guest room (could be done), the office/store room (really hard), and... the home school room (you've got to be kidding me).

I decided we had better start with the monster, so we got the homeschool room done on Monday.  It's all crammed into the library now.  Only 4 rooms to go!

It's like moving (without changing address) in that you get a fresh start at getting rid of junk and organizing your space.  I can tell I am going to love having done this!
