Dust everywhere!

My home is covered in a fine layer of dust. The floor is gritty and if you forget to put your slippers on, your feet get filthy. There's muddy footprints in the bathroom (Chickie can't seem to get the idea of 'no water outside the tub' sometimes) and the furniture is still all over the place.

I'd love to just get a feather duster, broom and mop and just get in there and get rid of it. I can't right now though. As I speak, J and his dad are putting up a cupboard in our bedroom (yay! I'll have some storage space soon!). You could say I have a skeleton of a closet and soon I'll have a closet for my skeletons - but that would be a bit corny...

So anyway, with all the drilling and sawing and trekking even more dust and dirt around the house, cleaning is pointless. I'll have to be a cleaning demon tomorrow - though I've got a dentist appointment in the morning so who knows if I'll be inclined to do much more than lay about and moan about 'the pain, the pain!' (read that in Doctor Smith style there).

I'm loving my new floor and I can't wait to have a proper bedroom cupboard but I'm not a very patient renovator. I just want my house back to normal!

I get quite impatient as well, but I'm usually the one doing the renovating so I have no one to blame but myself!

I'll see your dust and raise you 10 pounds of Husky fur!

When my did her floors we had to rinse out the dishes before we used them for months bc the saw dust would show up randomly, all over the place, but esp. in the dishes for some reason. Wierd. Its not like she had tons of dishes just sitting around, never being used. They go through at least two dishwashers a day there.

I'd like to join the protest regarding B&A pics.

h&b - well it's a very slooooow renovation. Bits and pieces over many many years (I'm still waiting for the cobblestone laying out the back to be finished - it's been years now). I think I may be able to get some before and afters (or durings at least!).

monicker - I've limited myself to painting. J, his dad and tradesmen do the rest.

phos - lol, and I thought my cats shed a lot!

charm - I just can't believe how much dust gets around. I mean, they were sawing, sanding etc outside and only the front door was open (so they could get in and out), yet the dust got everywhere!
