Well, after at least 4 houses and endless amounts of good intention I have finally managed to get a floor installed and FINISHED in a basement. It’s all fine and good to say that we have a gym in the basement (another project literally years in the making) but it is entirely another to say that the basement floor is finished!

Well. Not quite finished per se, because we now have to pick an underlay and a carpet to go down there but that is just icing on the cake. It is hard to believe in a way that something so huge as far as projects go is finally done, but on the other hand, I can’t believe it took so damn long!

Also, that was not the big news of the weekend, the really exciting part was seeing Nicole take part in her first official 5K run around Fairy Lake in Newmarket. Granted, she can run 5K without batting an eyelid, however this was the first time she had officially participated. The result was that she came 61st overall, 16th in the Female category and 3rd of 19 in her age group. It was a real treat to see her so pleased with herself and we decided that this was something we were going to fill our summer doing. That and finishing parts of the house. And trying to flip houses for profit. And fluffing cottages for money. And working out. And getting more gymnastics qualifications. And scrapbooking…

We actually did a lot this weekend, even though it was merely a 2 day weekend, which is hardly enough given the fact that we have to work 5 days… Who came up with that ratio anyway? We put up a curtain in the scrappy room, watered the lawn, I threw lots of stuff out into the clothing donations box at Home Hardware and did a huge cleanup and organization stint in the garage. In addition, I vacuumed the basment and FINISHED THE FLOOR!!!
