It suddenly popped into my mind out of the blue.
I don't need to buy expensive carpet, tile or wood flooring.
Concrete etching, staining and sealing.
I dunno why this didn't come to me before. Of course. It is a lot of work but in the end it looks great and is a fraction of the cost of any of those other types listed above.
In other words, a doable proposition.
Well I don't have to etch it, apparently staining it is pretty good looking too and much less work than etching it. I dunno yet, not in the position to do any of it. Hoping to get some more paint and get the dining room done. It's huge. All of the bottom floor rooms are huge in the house. The living room is 1,200 square feet, that's the size of a small home. I mean, I have ideas about that living room, it is way too large and could divide that thing in half and make a movie room out of one half and the other half the extended kitchen/eating area.
I dunno. It's not my house and so making decisions about it is kinda tough.
Regardless, these work hours are really kicking my @$$. I am not used to a 50 hour work week and I AM used to getting off at 2, not 5 and sometimes even later.
I mean, I think I started this yesterday. Long days, burning the candle at both ends, trying to get adjusted, going to take some time. Left here at 6am and walked through the door 20 minutes ago - it's 9:30. Way past my bedtime, but it is what it is at this point. When I got to m'lady's house today, I was greeted by a lot of kids wanting attention and love. M'lady too, obviously, lol. She made the pork chops I took over there the other day and they were delicious.
Then totally by accident - we were sitting on the couch and the kids were just sitting around watching us and talking about everything - something came out that one of the boys had done today. Because of the nature of what it was and a minor child I just can't go into it on the web. I can only say that I talked with this person about it as long as I could before I just had to leave, it was getting late and I told him I would continue with him again in the near future. Prayed with him and that, he said, made him feel peace and he liked that. No, it's not Josiah, he has a range of his own issues but not anything like this.
I'm trying to give them all attention, it's hard. There are 6 of them and they have been neglected by their own father and are craving it badly. Especially the girls. It is unnatural, IMO, that a dad neglect his own girls and not want them touching him or getting close to him at all.
Whatever. The day is long and I am exhausted.
