So the local paper ~The Westerly~ came out today and Angila and I both (in different households) did a little dance when we saw the full back page color spread about Ukee Baby! Very exciting for both of us. After a quick oogle of the article it was back to renos for the two of us. Our bathroom has gone from green (or more like sick pistachio) to white and now back to green (but a much nicer green). There are shelves on the walls (although the walls have a few more drill holes than were necessary- I was learning the value of a stud finder) and last thing to do now are the coat racks- well and then clean, stock the shelves, catalogue inventory, program the cash register. . . so there are a few more things to do.

Hanna and I are thrilled at the amount of progress we have made...this past weekend my brother came all the way from Maple Ridge to help with reno's...he ripped out the toilet..tiled the bathroom, installed a new door...linoleumed the kids area...built a fence...and left lots of goodies for us to use..all in a days work..thanks Johnny!....
Hanna and I keep crossing things off our list (which is written on a slab of drywall...)..we are sick of renovations..and want to get the fun stuff unloading the boxes from storage...we are getting closer everyday...
