I did it!

I officially blogged every single day this month. They weren't all interesting or exciting but I managed to check in every day. I might try this challenge during a different month next year. I really did plan to do more writing this month than I did, I was just too busy. I might try again when I have more time.

All in all, November was a good month. It was busy though, I spent most of picking out paint, furniture and carpet for the basement, and I'm glad that's done! December will be even busier, having the painters, carpet people and furniture people in here putting it all together. But I think we'll be happy with the results and it will be fun to see an idea that has been nine years in the making finally come together. We've been talking about eventually making a teenage hangout/media room down there for pretty much as long as we've lived here. It's the last part of the house that needed to be redone and I'm excited to finally see it complete.

Today we've got some projects that need to be worked on, I'm hoping to sneak in a movie at some point and we'll enjoy some more family time. We've had a great few days. I love these kinds of holidays when we're all home with nothing important to do and we can just hang out and enjoy each other. It's nice to take a break from the world every now and then and just spend some time together. Everyone goes back to school and work on Monday and real life begins again. I'm enjoying this family time while it lasts.

Next week the basement project officially starts. Next week they paint, the following week they carpet, the week after that they bring in the furniture and the next week we officially unveil it to the kids! I can't wait!
