My cold is on the run, and I feel much better. I've even gotten some knitting done, although from the lack of pictures you would rightly be suspicious of any activity in that area.
Hubby has started redecorating the second story landing. He's ripped up half of the carpeting and painted one wall. After we had seen an HGTV show about using molding strips to create the look of a panels on a flat door, he sanded the closet door, applied molding rectangles to the top and bottom sections, and then painted the whole thing white. It looks great. He's planning on putting snap together wood flooring on the landing, and then he'll run that into both the kid's bedrooms when funds allow.
