What can go wrong.....





Well, the craft room has hit a few more snags. After the seam from the laminate split in the middle and a piece chipped off my dh was NOT happy! All of that hard work down the drain. He had an extra piece of laminate and wood so he went to work redoing the piece. Then he cut that piece wrong. He had to hang it up for the night. Ok. Today he has a new plan. He wrote himself up a schedule of what needs to get done and when. He left work early and picked up new materials to redo the pieces he needed to. He gets it home and starts working with it only to find the guy at Home Depot cut it an inch short. I'm not sure what's going on right now. I'm trying to stay out of the way for now. He's not a very happy camper right now.

I want to clarify my post from yesterday. I am VERY grateful for all of the hard work my hubby is doing on my craft room. I'm just getting nervous about it getting it done in time for us to entertain his family on Christmas Eve and my family on Christmas day. His family is a relatively small bunch. There will be 16 of us. My family however is rather large. There will be about 40 of us. I need to have the basement back in functioning order to hold us all. I need to have tables set up down there to feed 40 people, have 40 people unwrap gifts, play games, etc. That's a week away people. To give you an idea of what I'm up against I posted a few photos of what my basement looks like right now. It ain't pretty folks! This doesn't even begin to show you how bad it really is. I NEED that craft room finished so I can start placing things back in there in an organized fashion and soon! He's working his butt off. I can't complain about that. We're just running out of time.

My hope is that within the next few days I can post that I have started placing things in my new craft room and my basement is shaping up. I know it wont be completely done by Christmas but reasonably finished would be nice. Here's hoping!
