It’s the final countdown!!

I can’t help singing that song in my head every time I’m working on something in the house. Things are definitely in full-swing at the Prokop household…and all I’ve got to say about that is hole-y-crap. This is worse than planning a wedding!

It’s almost over, though! And in 3 weeks we won’t be waking up to dust & chaos & boxes everywhere and upturned carpet tack boards that a contractor thoughtfully left on the inside of my closet door (true story, stepped on one this morning at 6am). Regardless of the stressfulness, we are having fun with the last few days at the casa and I have a feeling we will miss having our little project. I know we will miss the house. I’m sure we will find other projects soon enough. I am married to Frank Prokop… :)

I wanted to post updated photos of the master bath, but not much has changed in the past two weeks. We had a little hang-up with a tile issue and it set us back quite a bit.  We are hoping the tile will be finished this weekend so we can get in there and do the million little things that have to be done before the renters get here (paint, install vanities/toilet, lights, fixtures, baseboards, caulk, etc., etc.,). It’s just a lot of time consuming stuff, luckily we’ve done it all before several times before so we should be pretty efficient about it.

This past weekend we got a storage unit and started moving lots of boxes and odds & ends in. We also worked on the landscaping of our back yard and laid out about 50 bags of mulch along with some weed blocker fabric. It looks so much better that the weeded jungle we had going on behind the pool. I planted some hibiscus flowers back there a few weeks ago and they just started blooming again yesterday, that makes me happy! This upcoming Saturday we have movers taking our furniture to storage. Having the house empty should make it easier to finish up the little things here and there (and keep us from sitting on the couch and watching hockey playoffs & eating chocolate ice cream, which has been happening more than I'd like to admit..ha).

Anyway- we are surviving, hopefully we get everything finished before the 20th! That’s our deadline. After that we are soooooooo looking forward to sitting on our butts and doing nothing, absolutely nothing :). I think we are going to Panama City Beach for Memorial Day weekend…it will be much needed!

Here are a few photos from the last few days:

Trash from bathroom remodel

Doesn't look like much, but it took hours to weed, chainsaw, cover with weed fabric and mulch this area!

The trash guys are going to love us this morning...there are about 4 more black bags of trash not visiable, it basically takes up our whole curb! Ha! This all came from the area we mulched.

Our new vanity- it's here, just waiting to be installed!
