Sorry I haven't been online much in the past few days. Our kitchen is in our living room, the baby is at her Mormor and Farfar's house, and I am darting back and forth in between.
Mark from Nature Flooring arrived to help us out with our complex kitchen floor dilemma. The one where the original 1914 back porch became part of the kitchen at one point. The one that looks like this:
This is where the decades old maple ends and the splintery soft pine boards begin. It's crazy, really. A patchwork floor. A yucky floor.
So Mark tore right in there with a bravery that made me gasp a little.
And, ewwwwww. What did he (we) find?
Mouse nests. Old, disgusting mouse nests.
And a lot of dirt.
This was not as bad as finding brand-spanking-new, fresh, sparkly mouse nests, but still. Yuck.
We also found some REALLY old newspapers, one in pretty good shape. So, more about that tomorrow!
