In just enough time, we pulled the tape off the molding, cleaned the floor, and moved in the table and sideboard. It's nice to be done with the dining room for the time being.
It was also nice to have nine of our friends over for dinner. The smell of cooking ham made a nice change from the smell of stain-blocking primer and drywall mud.
We had two other guests, Candy the big black lab, and her little sister, Kjersten. It didn't take long for crazy dog play with our two girls to wear Kjersten out, and she spent much of the evening socked out on various laps.
Next up, we move all the furniture out again (believe it or not) and rip up the floor. But for now, a brief rest period.
