0 for 3

Mom is 0 for 3 on getting to work on time after the time change. She was close this morning. She sayhs she's sure it is against the law to leave a nice cozy bed when it's that dark outside. She's having a hard time with dressing in the morning, too. Monday she wore something for warmer weather and almost froze, yesterday she wore something for cooler weather and was too hot and today she wore layers which has worked out, but the top layer has been hanging on her desk chair all day. I guess it's better than her freezing or over heating. She said it would help a lot of it wasn't so dark when she was picking out her clothes. I almost feel sorry for her.
Our kitchen is almost done. For 2 nights I've been totally neglected. Last night I used my super powerful poor puppy eyes on Mom and she decided I needed some special attention. Hopefully the sink will be going back in tonight. Dad took it out last night to put the tile in and get the sink ready to be painted . They had to do the dishes in the bath tub which was funny. Mom hasn't taken any pictures of the mess yet. She says she's tired of looking at it and really doesn't want to remember it. She'll definatley take after pictures though (hopefully Blogger will cooperate by then and let me post pictures). While they wait for stuff to dry in the kitchen, they work a little on the hallway which only needs the trim painted and a spot where Dad had to patch a hole. They took the wood paneling out and the very last piece had a nice foot shaped hole towards the bottom behind it. Someone kicked a hole in the wall and then covered it up with wood paneling. When they first started taking the paneling down they found a nice orange color of paint. I pointed out that it matched the color of my Jeep and they should leave it. Mom said noway and put 3 coats over it to get rid of it. The two bedrooms shouldn't take much work (except cleaning out the spare room - it's called a "catch all junk room") and hopefully the living room won't take much work either. The bathroom has a lot of plans with removing the ugly wall tile and floor linoleum (yes, more linoleum to remove), but it's a small room so hopefully it won't take as long.
Dad should be home any minute now so I better go watch for him. He and Mom had plans at lunch so Sasha and I are doing the potty dance and Gunnar is sure he's starving to death. Good thing Dad usually gets off work early!

Hi, Kaos!
Sounds like your mom is having a hard time with the new time! My mom is going to suffer the same in one more month!
Are your mom and dad remodeling the whole house?? Hard work!
Kisses and hugs

Mom says it always amazes her what color paint some people will choose! Our kitchen was hot pink and turquoise before mom and dad changed it in a hurry! The hard work will pay off! We can't wait to see pictures!

I can see why your mom is so tired. Besides the time change, she's working hard at night on your home. It sure will be nice when everything is done, though, and YOUR life returns to normal, right, Kaos?

You guys have been so busy. Your house will be so nice you won't want to leave.
