But what do you do with all the furniture that was in the family room? Well, you stick it whereever it can fit. Most of it went into my dining room (a lovely mess, don't you think?).
And some larger pieces ended up in the kitchen. Yeah, I wasn't using the dishwasher or microwave for awhile (not that I was using it all that much anyway).
Here's what it looked like before the workers arrived. Kind of took me back 18 years, when we had the house built. It echoed! Kind of made me afraid that might happen when the flooring was put down. Hmmm...
Here's the family room after the quarter-inch plywood was put down. My husband didn't do this part when he laid the wood flooring for the living room and dining room. So I guess we won't be surprised if it ends up squeaking. So far, so good, though.
Here's the beginning of the flooring on top of the roofing felt (which we ALSO didn't put down on our previous project--were we slackers or what?).
Up close and personal.
All done! Ain't it pretty? Now we just have to put everything back. Ugh!
While not everything has been returned (not sure I want everything returned, I'm still going through the stuff!), putting the DVDs back was more work than I thought. It's all alphabetized, though! Oh, and the room does NOT echo. Whew!
Next up: getting the area rug for the room. We already ordered it -- 8x10 Steelers Logo! Figured why not? The room is full of Steelers stuff anyway (and it makes the hubby soooo happy).
We still have to replace the couch with two chairs, but I'm in no hurry to go shopping. My goal right now is Dragon*Con. Can't believe I'll be in Atlanta in less than a week. Squeee!!!
A dear author-friend of mine is having a giveaway and I thought I would share the details with you. I've read all her books and loved them all! Even the sweet romance ones (which are the ones she's giving away--so if you haven't read her, now's your chance to try and win her books!).

So... Has summer finally decided to visit you? We're due for some 90-degree temps for the next several days. HEAT WAVE! Not looking forward to that. Better than snow, though. So I guess I won't complain TOO much! :)
Have a good weekend!
