Take, for example the kids' bathroom. We "updated" it approximately 15 years ago, which honestly only meant painting it and removing the linoleum and re-tiling. And so it stayed for the next decade and a half!
[pause for adorable photo of Ben simultaneously washing his feet and double-fisted toothbrushing. I found this photo when searching for "before" photos. Note that this is the last time he's been spotted multitasking]
We thought that if we hired somebody to do the tiling it would make the experience less terrible. It didn't.
Now to take on swapping the kids' rooms. Which means... more flooring, organization, dust, arguments, late nights, painting...
Pray for us.
And, why do people take on these home improvement projects more frequently than once a decade? Those people have deep, deep issues.
