Real talk moment: this is why I've been MIA for the past few days, guys.
Please excuse the poor quality: I don't think there's a filter that could make this photo look good. And yes, that's how my living room looked for the past few days.
You know how they say that renovating an apartment is a never ending thing? Well, that's absolutely true, and then some. Installing the floor moldings was the last huge project on my list, and after failing at finding the contractors to do it for me, my dad and I decided to do it all by ourselves - despite the complete lack of experience in the domain.
My apartment went from presentable to the state of "post-atomic explosion" again (I don't think I can take much more of that anymore), and we've spent the past two days measuring, cutting, glueing and hammering the wretched things to my walls & floors. My lower back is pretty angry with me right now, and I'm not even talking about my neighbors - I'm not sure they're going to say hello to me next time I bump into them :) But it's finally done, and all I have to do now is clean up that monstrous mess. No big deal, right?
My point here, guys, is that no matter how messy and complicated things seem, there's always a solution around the corner. And we're all capable of much much more than we think! And if there's one lesson I've learned from my dad, it's that we should always strive to do the best work possible, no matter what. I'm so grateful that I have a dad I can rely on, and learn from on a daily basis. And I'm so grateful that this huge project is finally crossed off my list. I'm not glad, however, that I'll probably spend the next few days dusting off any available surface. Bleh.
Now I'm going to pour myself another cup of coffee, and bust my vacuum cleaner out. And I'm hoping I'll be able to get back to regular programming real soon. Happy Sunday! xo
