Pssst…I’m still here! I have lots of house projects to post about, I’m just so incredibly busy with work-work right now—I feel like I don’t have any brain space left at the end of the day.
For now, though, I just want to say thank you to everyone who stopped by and left comments on this post (and this one, too). I’ve gotten so teary-eyed reading through the messages of hope, happiness and excitement from people all over the world! It’s difficult to express how much it means to me (and to most Americans, I imagine) to know that we are not alone in moving forward.
I’m still riding the Obama high. I just want it to last forever!
yippie! the lady in the cafeteria at my school said to me today “this is the first time in a very long time that i don’t feel ashamed of being american in this country”. happy weekend, anna!
i TOTALLY agree with erin. The Obama high is sure a nice feeling. I too want it to last forever!
I hope you get a chance to relax a little this weekend! I finished painting the walls and ceiling in my bedroom tonight, I’ll be painting the floor tomorrow!
I am from Australia and i am supposed to have handed in an essay but i was way too excited, spent the day on a journa chat blog chatting with aussie journos for the day getting excited about virginia etc and watching the votes come in and we all had a ball!! did not once contemplate doing my essay and they were wondering how thay could do 8 hours of work in the last 30 min of the day! I am very proud of America, the world thanks you! hehe
Even here, in the Netherlands, it was a wonderful feeling last wednesday when we heard and saw what happened! It was the talk of the day in the office as well.
A very nice picture of the Obama family you had in your last log!
I have a question for you, I know you have vinyl flooring in the kitchen. I’m considering getting that for mine because of the price. Did you install yourself? If not, about how much did the installation cost for the kitchen? Wondering if it’s worth paying someone to come in and do it. Thanks!
Shashi, the flooring is VCT (vinyl composite tile) and is adhered to the floor with troweled-on adhesive. We did the installation ourselves. The total cost was abut $200 for the tiles, adhesive, and related materials. Our kitchen is about 150 SF.
Great! Thanks Anna, the flooring options can be overwhelming – and costly!
